Feast your freedom-loving eyes on the above image, America! That's a Google Maps screenshot of the Naval Observatory, which for the past eight years has been the lair residence of burrower demon former Vice President Dick Cheney.
You've never seen it before, and you'll never guess why…
Google Maps' satellite imagery has shown us clear shots of the White House, the Capitol and even the Pentagon. But one thing it never displayed properly was Dick Cheney's house.
The Vice President's quarters, located at the Naval Observatory since 1974, have been pixelated ever since Google has given the public an easy way to check them out—coincidentally ever since Dick Cheney has lived there. This censorship wasn't by Google but those supplying Google the source images, the U.S. Geological Survey.
Now that we have a new Vice President, one who will never vanish to an undisclosed location (unless it's readily accessible by commuter rail), the U.S. Geological Survey has begun providing clear images of the Observatory to Google, and therefore the world.
Of course, this is Joe Biden we're talking about.
Once he finds out how many people are looking at satellite pictures of his house, he'll start mowing gaffes in the lawn.
