The West Wing is in crisis mode. An absentee First Lady (and a Jewish First Daughter) means that the White House is woefully unprepared for the annual White House Easter Egg Roll next Monday. There are not enough event volunteers or enough commemorative wooden Easter eggs for the number of kids expected, and military bands will have to entertain the throngs since no celebrities have been booked. Come to think of it, military bands are a good idea. With more kids than eggs, having a few extra soldiers on the White House lawn may be an asset.
