I was just thinking yesterday about the easter egg roll. So a lucky few get invited to the White House but they close it to the public? How many weeks of White House tours does one easter egg roll party cost?

Cost more than the 18K saved by closing the WH tours. 35,000 people attending this years event. With that many on the grounds SS details will spend super O/T to cover.

Best part is, it’s going to be played out on April 1st.. April Fools Day.

As usual, the WH press release by Blarney was typical – “Bo & Mo have made extraordinary efforts to make [the White House] the people’s house”. So parties and concerts will continue until further notice, but sorry, no tours for the common people. Oh and a nice (possible) summer trip planned to the Vineyard.

After reading the story about the Easter Egg Roll, I now understand why Bo was posed with those ears earlier in the week. The “bunny person” was furloughed but Bo is to take their place.

After two years of slow-playing their hands and folding at every raise made by MrObama, the Congressional Repubs finally chose to call his bluff and match every raise. Holding a hand he knew could not win and not willing to lose more of his political chips, he folded.
Being a sore loser, MrObama then refused to bring the chips and dips when it was his turn to provide snacks for the game.

Former Presiden “Bubba” Clinton, an admitted adulterer, is asking the Supreme Court to overturn the DOMA. After years of refusing to honor his own vows of marriage, MrClinton is asking the Court to make marriage a simple legal contract to pay each others debts and to allow the partners to “pull the plug” when medically advised.

SenPaul’s recent filibuster has brought hope to millions of Americans of both parties that we can save our constitution from tyrannical acts of a President.
His vocal opponents were not members of the opposing party, but from his own. Regardless of the swift and stunning rebukes from two leading Senators, SenPaul is unbowed.

The traditional Easter Egg Roll will be held on the WhiteHouse grounds in defiance of mandated sequestration cuts that forced the President to close the doors to any WhiteHouse tours by schoolchildren. MrsObama, who was in favor of eliminating the constant flow of ill-mannered obese people traipsing through her home, was adamant that the Easter Egg Roll be held as planned because she has already purchased her Easter attire and wants the public to admire her new Easter bonnet.

WhiteHouse spokesperson claims that the US can stop any nuclear warhead missiles that might come from North Korea by shooting them down somewhere in Arizona or Texas. The two states were chosen for the detonation of the bombs because of their sparse populations and their refusal to admire the President as he deserves.

A charge of misogynist discrimination was charged by a previously unknown journalist who claims the WhiteHouse does not provide a private room for her to pump the milk from her breasts. After outlining the horrors of having to pump the milk from her breasts in a unisex bathroom, the complaining lactating woman insists that the WhiteHouse provide her with a lactating station; a certain room with a lounge chair, a TV, and a full time attendent to help her pump the milk from her breasts. No mention was made of what happens to the milk from her breasts after it has been pumped. .

Well done, srdem. Had a slow start this morning and you saved me a lot of reading time with your outstanding synopsis of the news. Thank you!

Well, we’re paying for birth control, and that failing, abortion, so why not this ?
Another victim of sequester?
