Secret's Out: USA Today has an interesting story (via Tuesday Morning Quarterback) about hotel deals for all the rich donors, lobbyists, and other power players who will be guests for Bush's inauguration. This example was particularly intriguing.

And for a relatively paltry $10,000 a night (four-night minimum), the Fairmont Washington, D.C., is offering a "President for the Day" package with niceties such as beluga caviar and Dom Perignon for 10, and actors hired to pose as Secret Service agents.
I don't know how pompous you have to be to try to pass off actors as Secret Service agents just to make you feel important. But I can't imagine the real Secret Service approving of imposters milling around a secure area.
