Dick Cheney
Dick Cheney's Extreme Home Makeover

News broke over the weekend that gaffe-prone Vice President Joe Biden revealed the existence of his predecessor's bunker while talking to reporters during last March's Gridiron Dinner. Dick Cheney's elaborate, taxpayer-funded panic room was allegedly built beneath the Vice-President's residence at the United States Naval Observatory in Washington, D.C. in 2002. Does it surprise anyone that the former Vice President had a bunker built under his house? This is, after all, the same home he had taken off of Google Maps. Regardless, Biden's office put out a less than convincing denial today (May 18th):

"What the Vice President described in his comments was not - as some press reports have suggested - an underground facility, but rather, an upstairs workspace in the residence, which he understood was frequently used by Vice President Cheney and his aides. That workspace was converted into an upstairs guestroom when the Bidens moved into the residence. There was no disclosure of classified information."

By the way, all this coverage of Cheney's "post 9/11 hideaway" uniformly fails to mention the fantastic book Nuclear Family Vacation in which authors Nathan Hodge and Sharon Weinberger make a convincing case for Site R (Ravenrock) as being Cheney's main crib after the attacks. He had to hang somewhere until his extreme home makeover was completed.
