I would've sworn I saw a story recently that mentioned someone in the vice president's office having a code for 'send Cheney on Russert's show,' as it was seen as a good first stop for spin or damage control. Unfortunately, I can't seem to find it now. If only I'd written about it when it first appeared. It was on my list and everything. But this is funny enough anyway, right?
Thanks to the Rampaging Cow for the link.
