Shutdown and the White House staff

I have to ask why a staff of 1,700 workers are needed for the White House.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Now in its second week, the partial government shutdown has taken its toll on the White House, where about 3 of 4 staffers have been furloughed, barred even from checking the BlackBerrys they usually clutch like worry beads.

Of the 1,701 advisers, assistants, number-crunchers, butlers, chefs and landscapers who work at the White House on a normal day, fewer than 450 are on duty, according to President Barack Obama's budget office. The rest fall under an unfortunate label that has kept hundreds of thousands of federal workers home: "non-essential."

At one entrance to the West Wing, a wall that normally displays clippings from the day's newspapers hasn't been updated in over a week.

"Congress slips toward shutdown," reads one outdated headline in a near-empty press office

I would imagine it takes a lot of people to shave a wookie daily.

God forbid they check the news online like the rest of us.
