Toobin, HE AIN’T NO Boobin! New Yorker writer and CNN talking head Jeffrey Toobin, who is very fond of giant poodles and the ladies, gets feted tonight at the Four Seasons by his fellow media fancy pants David Remnick, who likes to fold his arms and fix one with a suspicious stare, Ken Auletta, Tina Brown and Harry Evans, fresh off Madame’s triumphantly best-selling Princess Di book, Joe Klein, Katie Couric, Anderson Cooper, Regis Philbin, Jane Pauley and Bryant Gumbel; plus Mr. Toobin’s mommy, the esteemed Marlene Sanders. Reason? Mr. Toobin has written a book, The Nine: Inside the Secret World of the Supreme Court, which examines many of the judicial branch’s recent dramas, including the totally retarded Bush v. Gore decision. “It’s the behind-the-scenes look of the last decade,” the author sound-bit to us. C’mon, bub, what about something juicy? “David Souter was unfamiliar with both Diet Coke and The Supremes.” No wonder everything’s going to hell! Also tonight, Genesis is playing, sending our (er, slightly older) editor into a memory spasm of making out with her high-school boyfriend in an orange Sandinistas T-shirt during laser light shows at the Hayden Planetarium.
[Party for Jeffrey Toobin, Four Seasons Restaurant, Grill Room, 99 East 52nd Street, 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., by invitation only; Genesis, Madison Square Garden, www.thegarden.com]
