Easter eggs

Easter Sunday is today, but the annual White House Easter Egg Roll takes place tomorrow. The South Lawn is opened up for hundreds of Americans too young to vote. For that reason alone, it's the last truly apolitical event left in Washington, D.C.

Attendees will be reminded that Laura Bush was once an educator, and can determine whether our President really behaves like a third grader. According to this Q&A, the celebrity factor is decent: Sasha Cohen, Jack Hanna, and Clinton Portis, among others. But what about other high-ranking officials in the administration?

Oh hell no. I mean, "The kids just roll their eggs across a lawn. It's not an Easter egg hunt, Mr. Vice President."

A less important Easter event takes place today in San Diego. A special meeting of Comic-Con (some comic book convention) is scheduled, where geeks pore over all the DVD releases of the past 12 months to find any hidden features.

Lawn. Children. Eggs. Children running after eggs.

Cheney with a gun.

Sounds like a future South Park episode.

Well it was supposed to be the last truly apolictial event but they found a way to make it so.

But of course it could not go as planned.

JR: I haven't kept up with South Park (unless they're mocking Scientology), but I'm guessing Dick Cheney hasn't had the chance to kill Kenny yet.

K: I see. In past years I've noticed an overwhelming number of parents at these things flaunting their heterosexuality. So I guess it's always been political.
