A New Transparency

Big Friday news dump today. The Cheney FBI interview about Plame was released. Newsom dropped out in the CA race and rumors that the Afghan runoff election was cancelled. But the biggest item was the "unprecedented" release of the White House visitor logs along with a caveat to anyone who may get all excited when they see the list.
In September, requests were submitted for the names of some famous or controversial figures (for example Michael Jordan, William Ayers, Michael Moore, Jeremiah Wright, Robert Kelly ("R. Kelly"), and Malik Shabazz). The well-known individuals with those names never actually came to the White House. Nevertheless, we were asked for those names and so we have included records for those individuals who were here and share the same names.
I'm predicting a fury of investigation by far right bloggers into who the unfortunate people with the famous names really are along with enduring myths that the real people really were there.
