    One of the oddest parts of the "registration:"

    WTH?

    No Birth Certificate Required | Washington Free Beacon

    Maybe it's just me.

    It's totally weird. Got any validation as to the reality thereof?

    Just the link to the article. In it they are referencing an e-mail from White House Visitors Office director Ellie Schafer. Other than that...

    As for the Washington Free Beacon, not sure what their story is...

    I did a search based on the headline, nothing conclusive.

    They desperately want to show a lot of numbers going through there. They may start counting eggs and sperm.

    This isn't the most weird thing that goes on in the White House. They count the silverware after every meal. Nobody can leave until they have accounted for all the silverware but they eat on paper plates.

    the washington free beacon is a rightwingnut site. i wouldn't trust it.

    what i can tell you is this is the page where you get info about registering for white house tours and it says nothing like what the article in the beacon said.

    Tours & Events | The White House

    The Washington Times is running a story on this, not much more than the FB had, hell it's essentially the same story. I'd like to think they (WT) checked their sources.

    Screw it, I don't trust the media anyway. Just struck me as on odd story.
