Although Dick Cheney has furiously been making the talk show rounds in recent weeks to shore up his reputation (such as it was) amidst the continuing flow of ever-more damning revelations of his conduct in office, the one former Bushy who's managed to keep his name mostly out of the conversation has been former Defense Secretary Rumsfeld. That all changes thanks to this piece at GQ by journalist Robert Draper, who had previously been granted considerable access to Bush's inner circle for his book Dead Certain. The revelations about Rumsfeld's conduct of his job and himself aren't particularly surprising, but I guess it is a little depressing to have the worst impressions confirmed by people who were on the inside.
