Why Wake the President?

George Lardner Jr. has an interesting piece in the Post.
"How many probing questions is a groggy president supposed to ask at 3 a.m.? How much confidence should he or she have in the answers?"

After all, if it's the end of the world, there's nothing the president can do about it. If it isn't, it can almost always wait till breakfast. We got through World War I that way. And we won that one, didn't we?

"We got through World War I that way" is not exactly the most convincing argument. For example, we also got through World War I without tanks, a desegregated army, or the internet.

Anyway, on an unrelated topic, it's a little odd that there's a Google ad on this page to an anti-Obama site called "Barack Obama exposed." Thanks a lot Google.
