Cheney Craps Exemptions

Vice President Dick Cheney frequently cites "the Unitary Executive" as the basis for growing the power of the Presidency. In direct contrast in his latest skirmish with the National Archives, Cheney said his office is "not an entity within the executive branch". When questioned about this seeming inconsistency, the V.P. suggested the reporter "Go ____ Yourself. I crap exemptions several times a day. It's part of my duty as V.P. I just dislodged a doodee especially for you to place in the National Archives. Now quit wasting my valuable executive time!" (The Vice President shut out the National Archive from Vice Presidential office records after 2002.)
