The White House hosts its annual Easter Egg Roll on the South Lawn today, staying admirably on-message with an anti-obesity/exercise-themed event. “Ready, Set Go!” is the slogan, helped along by sports activities, but much of the kids' attention will likely go to performances by Sara Bareilles, Justin Bieber, and the cast of Glee. Some 250,000 tickets were requested and 30,000 awarded to folks from all 50 states, the Washington Post reports, with 3,000 going to local DC students and 4,000 to military families.
