Cheney's Undisclosed Location Disclosed

"Could there be a better visual metaphor for the change of administration?" -- Gawker

The very day former Vice President Dick Cheney moved out of the official Veep Residence at the Naval Observatory, Google Maps posted an unobstructed view of the place. They'd kept the place all fuzzy for years -- depending on aerial and satellite pictures from the US Geological Survey.

Back in 2005, the New York Times' Maureen Dowd noted:
The vice president, who believes in unwarranted, unlimited snooping, is so pathologically secretive that if you use Google Earth's database to see his official residence, the view is scrambled and obscured. You can view satellite photos of the White House, the Pentagon and the Capitol - but not of the Lord of the Underworld's lair.
No undisclosed location for VP Joe Biden. (Gawker)

So can us lesser mortals have the same fuzzy picture of our own houses?
