Darth Cheney Wants to Ruin History

Somebody needs to serve a subpoena on the 'fourth branch' in a hurry.
Welcome back to another day in CrazyWorld CheneyWorld, or as we like to call it, the "Fourth Branch". The NYTimes via AP is reporting that Darth Cheney has declared that he, and he alone, has the power to decide which, if any, of his papers are covered by the Presidential Records Act.

-- Dick Cheney's lawyers are asserting that the Vice President alone has the authority to determine which records, if any, from his tenure will be handed over to the National Archives when he leaves office in January

Clearly, he thinks he has more expertise in these matters than, oh say, the National Archivist, ya know? A person who is a professional in these matters?
