Today In Washington: V.P. Biden Attends A Secret Meeting On Transparency

You really can’t make things like this up:

“At 1:00 PM, the Vice President will attend a meeting of the Government Accountability and Transparency Board in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building. At 2:30 PM, the Vice President will meet with representatives of the National Sheriffs’ Association in the Roosevelt Room. These meetings are closed press.

From March you may recall when President Obama received an award for transparency in a secret, closed door ceremony. Or, back in September when it was revealed that anonymous government officials called for more transparency.

    @OzarkHillbilly: No, it’s just that irony such as this is too big for most irony meters to measure. In Vegas, we would be talking about having broken the bank.
