After All the President’s Men Bob Woodward spent 40 years on his ass on his laurels, writing suck-up book after suck-up book.* Charles Pierce said, “If he writes another one, I’m going to start thinking Nixon was framed.” Now he doesn’t have to. It seems Woodward should specialize in writing about evil presidents.

ETA: *As was pointed out to me on Facebook, It took several books for him to go into suck-up mode.
