Can’t-Keep-a-Secret Service

First-family-codeNow that Barack Obama has been elected president, the Secret Service has announced its new code names for the Obama family.

Barack Obama will be called “Renegade.” Michelle Obama will be called “Renaissance.” Malia will be called “Radiance,” and little Sasha will be “Rosebud.”

I am troubled by two things:

1) In a moment of crisis, might all of this alliteration get confusing?

2) Ummm… why is the Secret Service releasing the first family’s secret code names to the news media?
