Cheney Claims to be Fourth Branch of Gov’t | After Dick Cheney stated that his office was not part of the executive branch, and therefore not required to abide by a “presidential order establishing government-wide procedures for the guarding of classified national security info,” Rahm Emanuel’s office issued a statement calling for him to GTFO of the White House and return his salary if he’s not part of the executive.

“Today, we discovered that everything we learned in U.S. government class was wrong. Evidently, the Vice President does not consider himself a part of the executive branch, and therefore believes he can obstruct meaningful oversight and avoid being held accountable. If the Vice President truly believes he is not a part of the executive branch, he should return the salary the American taxpayers have been paying him since January 2001, and move out of the home for which they are footing the bill.”

That. Is. Awesome. (via Waldo Jaquith)
