For some odd reason this year somebody doesn’t seem to think it’s a good idea for Joe Biden to spend a day casually mingling with reporters. I wonder why?

Vice President Joe Biden will not be throwing his annual beach party for journalists this summer, POLITICO has learned.

Since 2010, Vice President Biden and Dr. Jill Biden have invited top journalists to their home at the Naval Observatory for a beach bash that has included Super Soaker fights, face painting, and a moon bounce.
[…]
The Vice President’s office declined to comment on the record regarding the decision to forego a party this summer.

Though the Biden party has been canceled, journalists are instead expected to be invited to an entirely off-the-record beach party at Eric Holder’s house. Reporters who would like to RSVP in the affirmative are asked to simply pick up their (or their parents) home phones and say “Junior Cronkite is a ‘go’ — repeat, Junior Cronkite is a ‘go'” loudly and clearly.
