Whitehouse.gov: Executive Branch INCLUDES the office of Vice President
See for yourself: http://www.whitehouse.gov/our_government/executive_bran... /

Cheney should be investigated for claiming he wasn't part of the executive branch so he could avoid turning over his records to National Archives!!!

1. Actually he was applying the "Cheney" principle...
which is the political analog to the Heisenberg principle...

in the Cheney Principle, the Vice President occupies one of two possible branches but you can never determine which one because attempting to investigate the branch that you believe VP to be presently a part of will cause the VP to change branches to an unexamined branch.

2. The biggest relief in this change
Is that there won't be any more of that kind of legalistic BS coming from the White House.

3. That is what was in all those special "boxes" he himself was lifting
and have certainly gone to the burn pile

I guess he though boxing them up himslef was better than trying to start a fire and burn them up in his office closet.
