Did you realize that Dick Cheney was not part of the executive branch of our government? He argues that on odd Tuesdays, Thursdays, and whenever else he makes a secret hand movement he magically is not part of the executive branch... or actually he just generally wants to be considered whatever is expedient, at any given moment. At such expedient moments he will fluctuate between acting as President of the Senate and occasionally moonlighting as Captain Kangaroo (that last bit is unconfirmed, but I think it will eventually come to light).
Anyway, in a kick-ass response along the lines of, "Well, if that's the way you want it," Rahm Emanuel has introduced a motion to limit Mr. Cheney's funding to the funding set aside for his non-executive activities... which should drastically limit the massive staff he has, etc.
You know, I'll be honest. It's pretty ugly, but it makes me smile. The slimy bastard deserves to take some heat for his ridiculousness... and it's frankly long overdue. To my eye Dick Cheney is a dangerous man.
