The Two Dicks

Today, Penguin Press will publish Pulitzer Prize-winner Barton Gellman's Angler: The Cheney Vice Presidency, which, according to the Washington Post writer's Web site, "describes a man of deep conviction and remorseless will who reshaped his office and his times." Last night, Gellman was on The Daily Show, and he recounted to Jon Stewart the "crazy" story of how Dick Cheney sold the Iraq war to skeptical North Texas Republican Dick Armey, then the House majority leader. It begins around the 2:45 mark. --Robert Wilonsky
