Let the Sunshine In?

by John J. Pitney, Jr.

On Monday, the president took time out from backroom maneuvers and backdoor deals to issue a statement celebrating “Sunshine Week”:

As Sunshine Week begins, I want to applaud everyone who has worked to increase transparency in government and recommit my administration to be the most open and transparent ever, an effort that will strengthen our democracy and ensure the public’s trust in their government. We came to Washington to change the way business was done, and part of that was making ourselves accountable to the American people by opening up our government.

 Now who can possibly say that the president lacks a sense of humor?
