How to Top the Irony of a Transparency Award to the Manchurian Moonbat

Posted by Dave Blount at March 17, 2011 10:56 AM

In the great tradition of Orwellianism that gave us a NAMBLA-associated pervert as Safe Schools Czar, yesterday the notoriously secretive Barack Hussein Obama was to accept a Sunshine Award in honor of his clearly nonexistent "deep commitment to an open and transparent government." But the event was postponed; us little people don't need to know why:

…reporters were told the event was postponed "due to changes to the President's schedule." No other reason was given.

This was to be the only Obama event of the day that was not closed to the press.


The Homeland Security Department demoted a senior career employee who confidentially complained to the inspector general that political appointees were improperly interfering with requests for federal records by journalists and watchdog groups.
The new Republican chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee investigating those practices told the Obama administration that the decision "appeared to be an act of retaliation" and warned, "Obstructing a congressional investigation is a crime."

Maybe, but it won't stand in the way of a Sunshine Award.
