Vice-President Cheney says that the Vice-President is not part of the Executive branch of the US government.
Already under fire for his secretive ways, Cheney has refused to comply with an order governing the care of classified documents; his office concluded that the order does not apply because he is not "an entity within the executive branch."

That's quite opposite the argument Cheney made in 2001, when he said that a congressional probe into the workings of his energy task force "would unconstitutionally interfere with the functioning of the executive branch."

Presumably, he did not do so well in grade-school social-studies classes.
