Don't worry, Dick, we won't like you any less

A newly disclosed effort to keep Vice President Dick Cheney's visitor records secret is the latest White House push to make sure the public doesn't learn who has been meeting with top officials in the Bush administration.

Over the past year, lawyers for President Bush and Cheney have directed the Secret Service to maintain the confidentiality of visitor entry and exit logs, declaring them to be presidential records, exempt from a law requiring their disclosure to whoever asks to see them.
So the Veep from the Deep has undisclosed encounters in his undisclosed locations. Oil company execs every afternoon, plus seances with Ken Lay? Overnighters with Paris Hilton, and long weekends with Jeff Gannon? Dinner with Hannibal Lecter, and strategy sessions with O.J. Simpson? Even those daily briefings from Osama bin Laden?

Don't worry, Dick--we won't like you any less.

That just isn't possible.
