Rep. Rahm Emanuel, D-Ill., said he would like to amend a spending bill that funds executive operations so that money for Cheney's office and home is put on hold until he clarifies which branch of government he belongs to. Emanuel acknowledged that the move is a stunt, but said if Cheney is not part of the executive branch, he should not receive its funds.
More like that, please. Stand up to them, ridicule them, use the levers of government against them. It draws from their power. Sooner or later the conventional press will see what's going on and maybe, just maybe, concern will spread from beyond the blogosphere (our won EW has been all over this too) and we can force some changes.
And this just in! VP not part of the Executive Branch? Neither is President Bush! Get out that rewrite pen, Rahm!
