Well, I’ve just finished scouring the White House visitor logs.

Regular readers know I seem to be one of the few in the media who actually does such a thing.

Regular readers also know that I’ve pointed out time and again that the logs are incomplete, misleading, obtuse, and designed to make it as difficult as possible to figure out who has visited and when.

So, it is no surprise that neither director Tim Burton nor actor Johnny Depp — hosts of the big 2009 Hollywood Halloween bash at the White House — show up in the visitor logs.

At least as far as I can tell.

Use the search function and look for yourselves.

This is a screen cap of the 10/31/09 list where Burton’s name should be (click for full size):

Actress Mia Wasikowska, who played Alice, was also at the White House for picture-taking, along with several other cast members.

Her name is also missing from the logs.

On FanPop via Verum Serum, several photos show the celebs posing inside the White House:

The party held in the State Dining Room and East Room benefited military families — always a good thing. That’s besides the point.

The Tinseltown cover-up, hushed to avert bad press when the economy was stuck in a recession and the Tea Party was on the rise, simply underscores the cloud-based transparency that has marked this administration from day one.

It is laughable that the White House reaction is to call the story “old news” — when the White House visitor log keepers apparently have yet to be told of the visits.

Looks like disclosure-subverting business as usual.
