NYC entertainment journalist driving down to Washington, D.C. on Saturday, 10.30, for Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert‘s “send all Tea Party righties to green re-education camps” rally. I wouldn’t mind sharing car rental costs. Plus I’m thinking about crashing somewhere in D.C. for the night. I don’t want to drive all the way back the same day, and I don’t need/want a slick hotel. I’m just looking for a bed and good wifi and a shower — that’s it. But the room has to be located somewhere cool. Georgetown would be nice, but what do I know?

Hey, is there any kind of press credentialing going on for this thing? So I can get a place closer to the stage and maybe take some good stills and decent video, etc.?
