    The Eisenhower Executive Office Building, which houses much of the White House staff is burning. No word about how this fire started.

    On cable news, you can see firefighters banging windows out of the building and smoke billowing out.

    It's Wednesday. Trash barrels full of soon-to-be-subpoenaed files and videos are getting burned. Standard-issue shredders leave too much in this day of cutting edge forensics.

    I thought Friday at 6:59 p.m. was trash day in DC.

    The Bill Of Rights has been on a national tour and it was scheduled to visit that building today.

    Quality work.
    Unless, of course, someone got hurt in this fire, then you're going to hell.

    The fires of hell are getting tired of waiting for Dick Cheney.

    Faux News is saying it's an electrical fire in a closet next to the VP's office.

    The firefighters are being denied access by the Secret Service.

    No fucking lie.

    Homeland Security says that the fire is contained.

    Translation: Mission accomplished.

    However, in a related story, one was shot by Dick Cheney.

    Are we winning the war against the fire in the closet?

    Did the closet have weapons of mass destruction?

    Will we attack the neighboring closet next?

    Nice split screen of the fire next to the "press conference" of the Bush energy bill signing. Haven't heard so much clapping since the Gundy rant.

    Edwards got in trouble when he brought up that issue in the 2004 VP debates.
