Big Guy was none too pleased when Gibbsy and I showed up at his door at about 4:30 on Sunday morning to tell him that the North Koreans had fired their rocket, or missile, or whatever our national security people think it is.
The White House Chief of Staff is usually the one who is supposed to do the waking, but ever since watching "24" to learn how to be a chief of staff and seeing a press secretary wake President Palmer, Toes has refused to do it.
I should be clear, Big O's anger wasn't about the rocket. He just hates getting pulled out of bed for minor things, like potential missile attacks. Lady M doesn't help matters, either, in fact, she encourages the "do not disturb" approach to Big Guy's sleep. Their rationale: a well-rested Barack means a top-flight performer on the world stage. And after we've seen him the past week, can anyone disagree?
