Memo to Russert: Cheney thinks he controls you.

  Link tried to link it, but couldn't find the permalonk - why do people hide those?

    This delicious morsel about the "Meet the Press" host and the vice president was part of
the extensive dish Cathie Martin served up yesterday when the former Cheney communications 
director took the stand in the perjury trial of former Cheney chief of staff I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby.

    Flashed on the courtroom computer screens were her notes from 2004 about how Cheney 
could respond to allegations that the Bush administration had played fast and loose with evidence 
of Iraq's nuclear ambitions. Option 1: "MTP-VP," she wrote, then listed the pros and cons of a 
vice presidential appearance on the Sunday show. Under "pro," she wrote: "control message."

   "I suggested we put the vice president on 'Meet the Press,' which was a tactic we often used," 
Martin testified. "It's our best format."

Translation: Timmy never asks a substantive follow-up so we can get away with anything.
