Psst, wanna know a secret?

November 12, 2008

We can all sleep better tonight knowing that the Secret Service has given the Obama family their code names:

The President will now be known as “Renegade,” Michelle Obama as “Renaissance,” Malia as “Radiance” and Sasha as “Rosebud.” Vice President Joe Biden got tagged with the fairly ho-hum “Celtic” and his wife, Jill, will be known as “Capri.”

The only name that seems wrong is Obama’s — “Renegade” would have much better suited that old maverick John McCain (who was “Phoenix”; sorry about all those ashes this time around), although “Rosebud” might start resenting that “Radiance” got the much cooler name. And what’s the point of “code” names when we all know them? Maybe they also have double-secret code names.
