Gingrich will sit next to guy from Gossip Girl

This is too good.

Ana Marie Cox seems to have just found out that Ed Westwick, who plays Chuck Bass on the hit CW show "Gossip Girl" (I mean, I hear he plays that character and I hear that's what the show is called, though I've never seen it or anything) will be attending the White House Correspondents Dinner. He's a guest of The Atlantic Monthly.

But it gets better. Mr. Bass will be sitting next to Newt Gingrich, who's the cultural antithesis of the Manhattan-centric TV series.

Wonder what they'll talk about.
