The Washington Post reports he was guest of honor at a dinner party given by columnist George Will, along with Bill Kristol, David Brooks, and Charles Krauthammer. Rumors were buzzing that Rush Limbaugh would attend, but a source tells the Huffington Post he was not at the table. No word yet on the topic of dinner conversation.
