Obama's Super Bowl Party: Where's My Invite?

ObamaWell if this isn't a kick in the shins. Just when you think you know somebody.

President Obama has released the list of lucky guests he's invited to the White House Super Bowl Party.

And guess what. I'm not on the list and I'm pretty sure you aren't either. UNLESS. Unless you're J. Lo and you are reading this right now. In that case, J. Lo! I love you! We should be best friends. You clearly don't have one because if you did, she would've stopped you from wearing that headscarf on Idol last night. I kid because I love. J. Lo. Love you, mean it.

But if you're not J. Lo, or Marc Anthony, then odds are that yeah, you're not headed to Pennsylvania Avenue for a little football action. Sucks to be us, don't it?

So who's going?

The White House announced yesterday that the list is about 100 people deep. Celebrities, politicians, and not us are on the list. Sasha and Malia responded, "Maybe, but only because there's gonna be a Bieber commercial."

Those who RSVP'd 'hell yes' are J. Lo and Marc, Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, and Attorney General Eric Holder.

Then it seems Obama wanted a bi-partisan football group -- he invited some politicians who'll root for the Steelers, and some for the Packers.

For the Steelers we've got Senators Robert Casey Jr. and Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania.

For the Packers we've got congressman Reid Ribble of Wisconsin, former Wisconsin Governor Jim Doyle, Madison Mayor Dave Cieslewicz and Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett.

In a news release, Mayor Barrett remarked,

The fact that I will be watching the Packers win the Super Bowl with the Bears' 'Fan-in-Chief' is particularly satisfying.

Haha, good one, Mayor.

This guest-list sounds like it's full of squares (except you, J. Lo) so I'm not sure I'd wanna go anyway. Yeah, I wouldn't wanna go to Obama's Super Bowl party. Sounds lame. But if a slot happens to open up, Prez, get my number from the F.B.I. and give me a call. But yeah, otherwise, wouldn't wanna go.

What do you think of Obama's Super Bowl party?
