Cheney’s Suite Demands
Posted on Mar 24, 2006
When the vice president spends the night at a hotel, he requires all TVs pre-tuned to Fox News (natch), room temperature set at 68 and caffeine-free Diet Sprite, among other things.

MARCH 23—After posting the performance contracts of artists like Bruce Springsteen, the Rolling Stones, and U2, The Smoking Gun has finally obtained the backstage demands of a real rock star. That’s right, below you’ll find a copy of Vice President Dick Cheney’s standard “tour” rider. The document is provided to hotels where Cheney will be bunking and lists how the Republican pol’s “Downtime Suite” needs to be outfitted. While the vice president’s requests are pretty modest (no extract-the-brown-M&M demands here), Cheney does like his suite at a comfy 68 degrees. And, of course, all the televisions need to be preset to the Fox News Channel (what, you thought he was a Lifetime devotee?).

Dick Cheney’s “rider,” his list of hospitality demands, is actually quite modest, paling in comparison to prima donnas like Jennifer Lopez.
