Transparency Doesn't Extend to Panic-Causing Pictures and Grey Poupon

I thought this administration was going to be all about the transparency.

So what’s up with this?

You know those family photos that someone snapped at the lake and they really show your unwanted gut hanging out over the swimsuit and so somehow those pictures don’t end up in the family scrapbook?

Well, that’s the same deal with those expensive publicity shots of the Air Force One backup plane flying low over lower Manhattan the other day. The ones that caused 9/11-style panic, many downtown Gotham buildings to evacuate and two injuries.

According to the N.Y. Post today, those photos have been classified and will not be released by the transparent Obama White House. Not really classified as in “top secret” classified. But classified as in those are going in the file cabinet.

I don’t know about the rest of you, but we paid close to 400 grand for those photographs. I want them.

You know, in case some Congressman or someone important like that comes to visit.

Speaking of transparency, isn’t it nice to have a press corps that automatically airbrushes away such embarrassing stuff as our President trying to get some Dijon Mustard for his greasy-spoon cheeseburger.

Oh yeah. He’s a man of the people all right.
