As Twitchy reported, still photography will be allowed during today’s Obama-Biden lunch date. Plenty of people thought the timing was suspect, as portions of former SecDef Robert Gates’ new book, which is quite critical of Obama and Biden, made the rounds yesterday. But the White House wants to assure all skeptics that the cameras will purely be around for transparency purposes. Because Obama promised a transparent presidency, and doggone it, he makes good on his promises!

Unfortunately, nobody seems to be buying what the White House is selling. We can’t imagine why that would be.

Transparency. Suuuuuure.

Yeah, that’s what we thought.
