The Smoking Gun has obtained a copy of a document, created by the Office of the Vice President and provided to hotels where Cheney will be staying, specifying Vice Presidential Downtime Requirements (in other words, Dick Cheney's Hotel Suite Demands)it's a quite modest list of requests (as TSG notes, there's "no extract-the-brown-M&M demands here")but there is this notable little glimpse of the man's sense of priority: "All Televisions Tuned to FOX News (please let the Advance Office know if it is satellite or cable television)"
