Dick Cheney, rock star


When Vice President Cheney travels, he carries a document listing his "downtime requirements." That's right, just like a rock star, Cheney actually has a tour rider. Surprise...he requires TVs in his suite to be tuned to Fox News. Here's what else the rider says:

VICE PRESIDENTIAL DOWNTIME REQUIREMENTS
The items listed below are required [underlined] for The Vice President's Downtime Suite. Please contact the Advance Office, 202-456-9006, with any questions.

Queen or king-size bed, in a connecting room to the parlor [not IN the parlor, mind you, and not in a disconnecting room to the parlor]
Desk with chair [a place to sign all his Halliburton kickback checks]
Private bathroom [with good locks on the door]
All lights turned on [afraid of the dark, Dick?]
Temperature set to 68 degrees [the temperature of Cheney's blood]
All televisions tuned to Fox News (please let the Advance Office know if it is satellite or cable television) [satellite interferes with his implant]
Microwave [so Cheney can make popcorn to eat while watching gay porn videos]
Coffee pot in the suite (BREW DECAF PRIOR TO ARRIVAL) [decaf helps him shoot straighter]
Container for ice, and the location of where ice maker is located [hopefully it isn't located in an undisclosed location]
Bottled water, 4-6 bottles [to wash down the Coors]
Diet Caffeine Free Sprite [to wash down the water]
Hotel restaurant menu (please also fax a copy to the Advance Office, 202-456-7607) [and have everything on the menu tested for anthrax]
Newspapers - New York Times, USA Today, Wall Street Journal, local paper, Washington Post [he really only reads the WSJ; the rest are just for show]
If the hotel would like to put a gift [preferably one that isn't ticking] in the Suite please let the Advance Office know ASAP. Please also make sure someone from the team or a Super Volunteer (on radio) is there to receive the Motorcade on Arrival. [And Make Sure Words That Don't Need To Be Capitalized Are Capitalized]
Extra lamps [to help compensate for his abysmal darkness]

"Temperature set to 68 degrees [the temperature of Cheney's blood]" LOL!

They left out the stuffed boar's head and the bag of dried monkey chips.

Cheney can't live without his boar head and monkey chips.

Ah...the boar's head and monkey chips! Maybe those are on page 2, along with the wife of the Swedish ambassador, some bubble bath, and a waterproof dildo.
