Andrew Sullivan points out this high-quality piece of GOP propaganda in the Washington Times today.

Vice President Dick Cheney has grown closer to President Bush as the two men prepare for their sixth year in office, according to White House officials who scoff at press speculation of a rift.
“I don’t think the relationship is strained at all,” said a senior administration official in the vice president’s office on the condition of anonymity. “Every once in a while, I see stuff written to that effect, but … I think it’s closer than it has ever been.”

Now, that quotation sure needed the cover of anonymity. I mean, someone could definitely lose their job for providing fluff, PR spin for the administration.
