Cheney’s Hotel Suite Demands

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Kitchen Sink, Media

Haha, now this is funny. Rock musicians have these things called “riders.” They’re basically lists of thing that the performer wants in their dressing rooms, be it food, liquor, certain types of furniture, etc.

Well, Cheney has a “rider” and one of the demands is that any television in his room(s) should already be tuned to FOX News.

Read the whole thing at The Smoking Gun.

    They said on the news tonight that he also requests copies of several papers be in his room as well – USA Today, NYT, etc…

    Frankly, I thought it was funny given the rider I cited on Smoking Gun.

    Good to see he wants major papers.

  3. TallDave Says:

    I think the real shocker here is that he wants the New York Times.

    I mean, most people choose Fox News anyway, even besides the fact its ideologically friendly to him.

    Well, maybe he’s looking for another Judith Miller…

    I am a little disappointed that the list isn’t more exciting. But, who says “parlor” these days? And, sprite doesn’t have caffeine. Finally, 68 degrees is frickin’ cold!

    He probably likes rough toilet paper.

    I know the bassist for GWAR. The last time they were in town, I got to go backstage. Their primary “rider” – Pabst Blue Ribbon. I found that to be much more disgusting than anything in the show.

    Heh. I interviewed their sole female performer years ago. She said she eventually wanted to break into kids television, but she was afraid she’d been “Pee-Wee Hermanized” by the GWAR experience. I should look her up and see if she made it.
