Maniacs Need Not Apply

David Addington, former lawyer for then-Vice President Cheney and the brains behind many of the Bush Administration's most horrifying executive power grabs and war on terror policies, is having trouble finding a job. Perhaps he should write a book, like the similarly employment-challenged Alberto Gonzales. Unlike Gonzales, Addington stands strongly and unabashedly behind the work he did. Unlike Gonzales, Addington would probably write a compelling and interesting book.

Would it suck that Addington would make money off a book deal? Yes. Would the book likely be valuable to researchers and historians for years to come? Also yes.
