Quantum Physics and the Vice President

Many of you may be puzzled by the statements made by Dick Cheney's office several weeks ago that he is a member of both the legislative and executive branches of government, which conveniently gives him the ability to be shielded by executive privilege from Congress and from the Justice Department under the separation of powers. Under the classical laws of politics, this assertion makes no sense, but a hilarious cartoon found here (one panel is on the left) points out that Cheney's actions are simply evidence of quantum politics. Cheney's political wave function is a linear combination of the executive and legislative branches!

Seriously, though, anyone who has taken quantum mechanics needs to check out the full cartoon.
