The Cheney Vice Presidency
by Barton Gellman
Dick Cheney is kind of a genius and a total creep. Not least because his goon David Addington comes off worse in this book than Cheney does.
After chapters and chapters of over-reaching scheming creepy genius horrorshow, Gellman tries to soothe his readers by explaining how eventually Cheney got put back in his place, sort of, and gets all pollyanna-ish about things always reverting to the natural order, even for creepy geniuses. I AM NOT REASSURED, BARTON GELLMAN.
