Today, U.S. District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly dealt 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” by ruling that Vice President Cheney must preserve his records. Kollar-Kotelly said that the Bush administration’s legal position “heightens the court’s concern” that some records may not be preserved. The lawsuit, brought by CREW and several historian organizations, was prompted in part by Cheney’s claim that he is not part of the executive branch.
Well, I'm not holding my breath on this. The "black hole" administration will be the Bush legacy. You know, the only administration to officially "lose" e-mails and to declare that the vice president is neither part of the legislative nor the executive branch of the United States government. I'm wondering when American citizens will be lining up for their tattoo of "L" on their foreheads, courtesy of the Bush Administration.
