Like many rock stars, Vice President Dick Cheney has a checklist of requirements for his hotel suites. But you won’t find bottles of booze or bowls of green M&Ms among the demands, according to a document posted on The Smoking Gun Web site.

    1. C'mon — what's not to like?

      Hoof it over to Facebook to join the weird news herd.

The site, which collects public documents on crime, celebrities and politicians, says it obtained the memo from a hotel employee prior to a Cheney visit.

The “downtime requirements” memo includes fairly mundane requests such as a king or queen sized bed, a desk with a chair and a container for ice.

The vice president also requires that all televisions be tuned to Fox News, and a pot of decaf coffee and four cans of "Diet Caffeine Free Sprite" be in the room.

Handwritten additions to the memo also request several newspapers, including the New York Times and Wall Street Journal, and extra lamps.

It also specified that Cheney staff must be notified in advance of any hotel gifts left in the suite.

The Smoking Gun Web site says it contacted a Cheney spokesperson, who said she could not address questions about the memo without first seeing the document.
