Who’s bringing whom, so far, to the White House Correspondents Dinner? According to FishbowlDC’s count: the Emanuel brothers are divided between two broadcast networks (Rahm with ABC, Ari and Dr. Zeke with NBC); Fox News will bring Sarah and Todd Palin; CQ’s got The Rock; while the New York Daily News will have Captain Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger on its arm.

And Politico, seeking to get a rise (or at least a link) out of people, puts together a video showing the press corps rising when President Obama visited the briefing room last week along with footage showing them sitting down during a President Bush visit. Explanations from Slate’s John Dickerson and CBS News’s Mark Knoller. (In sum: we were surprised; it was the rookies).
