Say What? White House Party Crashers Violated DC's Social Code


"Washington has its own version of a celebrity-driven culture, but these people are unattractive and lack charisma so what makes them celebrities is their substance."

— Former speechwriter for President Clinton Eli Attie tells the New York Times how the Washington DC social scene operates. The article discusses how party crashers Tareq and Michaele Salahi disrupted the capital's social code by seeking notoriety without any substance to back it up.

I'm so tired of this couple. They say they're cooperating, but they only repeat a vague sentence over and over. They say this bad publicity has ruined their lives yet they don't tell let you know their business was bankrupt and their things were getting repossessed loooooong before this ever happened. Keeping up with the Joneses is tough and its getting them in more trouble then they ever imagined.

The crashers were behaving like southern Californians. Notoriety based on physical beauty.
