In a rare non-Palinpalooza story from TalkLeft:
Remember in 2003 when Vice President Dick Cheney began asserting that the Vice President is not part of the executive branch? He’s been using that ever since as an excuse to be relieved from preserving documents under the Presidential Records Act.
Today, a federal judge told Cheney to preserve his records.
The Bush administration’s legal position “heightens the court’s concern” that some records may not be preserved, said the judge.
The decision by U.S. District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly is a setback for the Bush administration in its effort to promote a narrow definition of materials that must be safeguarded under by the Presidential Records Act.
I’m sure our Sith Lord/VP is trembling with fear in his secret, undisclosed location.
