    Low Temperatures, High Drama: Inside the Iowa Press Corps As you know, everyone who’s anyone in politics is in Iowa right now. But so is everyone who’s no one! That’s right, we’re talking about the press, the unwashed mass following the candidates around, scribbling and taping and snap-snapping as Hillary, Obama, McCain et al spout platitudes, stuff themselves full of local cuisine and generally attempt to maintain a grip on the love handles of the elusive midwestern vote. That’s who we want to know about. We’ve had enough of Billary and FreJeri Thompson and KuciniHottie. What about the writers, anchors and bloggers who make them who they are?? (Or at least tell us who they want them to be?) For those of you with a lurid curiosity about these sick characters, we did some digging into what the Iowa press corps is up to. And not just the Dana Milbanks and the Adam Nagourneys. (Spotted! The NYT staff having dinner at Lucca, the Italian place in Des Moines’ “East Village” that Ad Nags raved about in the travel section a few weeks ago.) We mean everyone. Take Jodi Kantor from the Times, for example.

    You Should See Pataki Do That Bow Wow Song After a Couple of Sam AdamsA significant portion of New York’s wealthy and powerful will migrate north this weekend for the Yale-Harvard football game. The notoriously competitive teams are both undefeated, making this one of the most important games in history. And a good excuse for getting toasted! Among the revelers will be Governor Pataki, who graduated from Yale in 1967, and who plans to booze it up at his house in Garrison, New York, before taking his party up to New Haven to tailgate. Whoooo! “We’ve got everything ready — great food, good wine and beer,” he told the Sun, adding that drinking the brewski is how he spent a large percentage of his undergraduate years. He’ll mingle with Harvard friends before the game, he says, but when the game starts, it’s all business. “None of us are particularly good losers,” he said. Now that’s a shocker.

    Kravitz Family Might Annoy Crosby Street Neighbors With More Than Just Leaky ToiletsAt the launch party for DKNY’s fragrance Delicious Night, Lenny Kravitz’s 18-year-old daughter, Zoe, was wise beyond her years when we asked about her wildest night in New York. “I don’t think I can tell you that!” she said, laughing. The SUNY Purchase student was equally mum on what a typically crazy night with her rock-star dad entails. “We make pancakes late, late at night sometimes, and we sing Sly and the Family Stone while we do it.” Lenny, she says, makes great pancakes. “Lots of cinnamon” is his secret. So, we wondered, is it in that giant loft on Crosby — on the market forever, and once occupied by Nicole Kidman — where the late-night pancakes and singing occurs? “Oh, yeah, that’s where the pancakes are made.”—Bennett Marcus
