Extraordinary claims demand extraordinary evidence

From ABC News:

Vice President Dick Cheney has asserted his office is not a part of the executive branch of the U.S. government, and therefore not bound by a presidential order governing the protection of classified information by government agencies

Excuse my while I mop up the sake that I sputtered all over my keyboard…
UPDATE: There was an excellent question raised in the comment thread:

If Cheney is not under the Executive Branch, can he still claim “executive priviledge” when he doesn’t want to testify before Congress?
