VP Attends Closed Door Meeting on Transparency


This entry in Vice President Joe Biden's schedule provides today's dose of irony*:

"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."

Lots more Reason on transparency in government. Me on "transparency chic."

* Obviously, this is a cheap shot. Having a private meeting about ways to make government more transparent might actually be totally reasonable. But since the Obama administration has totally sucked at transparency so far, I see no reason to assume that's the actual goal of the meeting.
