What else would you expect from Vice President Biden? From Andrew Malcolm's blog at the LA Times:
Possibly the most important event of the vice president's day Tuesday is to meet at 2:15 with Earl Devaney. Everyone knows him as chairman of the Recovery Accountability and Transparency Board -- the top guy monitoring the gazillion-dollar stimulus and the overdue economic recovery, and ensuring that the taxpayers financing same know all about it.
However, no one outside the room will know what goes on in that Biden-Devaney meeting. That's because the government meeting on government transparency has been closed.
The most amazing thing about this is how none of those attending will see anything curious about that. It's just like Pelosi promising to "drain the swamp" all while ethics charges against her own party rose exponentially. Or like President Obama calling for bipartisanship as he locks Republicans out of policy-making rooms.
It may be physically impossible for a group of folks to be more out of touch than these geniuses are.
