WASHINGTON D.C. - Recently leaked visitor records from Vice President Cheney's office reveal a startling number of visits by Satan over the past six years. According to the records, the Vice President saw Satan more than 23 times since 2000.
Asked about the numerous meetings between the VP and the Prince of Darkness, a White House spokesperson said, "Vice President Cheney always meets with a wide variety of dignitaries and thought leaders to gather input prior to decision making. Satan is one voice among many. The relationship between the Vice President and Satan goes back many years, and Mr. Cheney respects the unique perspective Lucifer brings to the issues that face our nation."
The Devil was not immediately available for comment, but his office provided a brief written response to our queries.
"Satan considers Vice President Cheney a close personal friend and has made himself available for consultation on occasion. Contrary to rumors, Satan has never 'written policy' for the Vice President nor have any deals been struck or contracts signed between the administration and the Evil One."
Democrats are calling for an investigation into what is now being referred to as 'Satangate.' House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi said she was shocked by the revelations.
"If true, this is outrageous. Satan is a huge contributor to the Republican party and has benefited in many ways from the policies of this administration. To say these meetings were nothing more than a yakfest between old friends truly insults our intelligence. I am calling for a thorough investigation of this issue to begin as soon as possible."
Satan is not a stranger in Washington, D.C. and is often sighted at parties given by the Capital's A-listers.
