David Letterman: "Top Reasons Dick Cheney Won't Resign": Turns out when you shoot somebody, if you're not vice president, you gotta do time; Bush leaves at two every day and then it's margaritas and Fritos; Set the solitaire high score on his office computer; Wants to see if he can help Bush get his approval rating under ten; Too hard to give up Vice Presidential Discount at DC area Sam Goody stores; Extra-zappy White House defibrillators; Undisclosed location has foosball; Why quit when things are going so well?
