Transparency! Accountability! Nevermind!

White House Blocks Testimony on Party Crashers: "The White House on Wednesday invoked the separation of powers to keep Desiree Rogers, President Obama's social secretary, from testifying on Capitol Hill about how a couple of aspiring reality television show celebrities crashed a state dinner for the prime minister of India last week."

This is the same shit the Bush administration pulled during the Plame leak and the federal prosecutor purge. It pissed me off then, and it pisses me off now.

And, not for nothing, but Bush never campaigned on bringing a new era of transparency and accountability to Washington.
