Hundreds of gay and lesbian parents hoping to take their families to the annual White House Easter Egg Roll plan to start lining up Friday evening to make sure they get tickets for the Monday event.
Thousands of tickets — an estimated 16,000 last year — are given away on a first-come-first-come basis beginning at 7:30 a.m. Saturday.
National Park Service officials said Wednesday that children of all ages may attend as long as there is at least one child 7 years old or younger, and no more than two adults per group.
First lady Laura Bush’s office issued a statement saying all families are welcome to attend.
I am sure that Mrs. Bush will be a gracious hostess and the kids will have a wonderful time. The tightie-righties are calling it a political protest, but only in their fevered and paranoid mind could they turn parents taking their kids to a once-in-a-lifetime outing (pardon the pun) into something political. How about they just want to show off their kids and have some family fun?
