Following last year's debacle where a pair of Washington D.C. socialites snuck in and hobnobbed with Obama's top brass, the Obama White House was on high alert at last night's state dinner for Mexican president, Felipe Calderon and his wife Margarita Zavala. However, the leaders were still having fun, according to Latoya Peterson, editor of the blog Racialicious.

She describes the scene and tells us how reality TV and the Internet has affected the event.
