MAYBE HE SHOULD FUDGE A FEW FACTS ON HIS RESUME…. In general, there’s nothing amusing about someone struggling to find a job. These are very difficult economic times, unemployment is nothing to joke about.

David S. Addington, a top aide to Vice President Dick Cheney who was a forceful voice in internal legal debates, is also said to still be looking for work.

Write a few memos defending torture, unlimited executive power, White House law breaking, and the notion that the Vice President isn’t part of the executive branch and the next thing you know, law firms are reluctant to take you seriously.

Imagine that.
