Cheney evicted from Capitol office
Darth was evicted from his office on the Hill…
Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-NY), now the Chairman of the Ways and Means Committee as the Dems take over the House, has booted the VP out of his suite.
Cheney has long occupied an office suite on the second floor of the Capitol Building in his constitutional post as President of the Senate. The office is prime Capitol real estate, and traditionally reserved for the Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee.
…With the 110th Congress sworn in, Cheney has now left the office to Rangel. Cheney’s staff apparently stated that the vice president always understood that the office was “on loan.”
Rangel, you might recall, has called the VP a “son of a bitch” and said “Sometimes I don’t even think Cheney is awake enough to know what’s going on,” and “He’s got heart disease, but the disease is not restricted just to that part of his body. He grunts a lot, so you never really know what he’s thinking.”
