The NYTimes reports that Alberto Gonzales, former attorney general, is having difficulty finding a job. As they put it:

Alberto R. Gonzales, like many others recently unemployed, has discovered how difficult it can be to find a new job. Mr. Gonzales, the former attorney general, who was forced to resign last year, has been unable to interest law firms in adding his name to their roster, Washington lawyers and his associates said in recent interviews.

He has, through friends, put out inquiries, they said, and has not found any takers. What makes Mr. Gonzales’s case extraordinary is that former attorneys general, the government’s chief lawyer, are typically highly sought.
I think this is a pretty rich opportunity for schadenfreude, as Gonzales represents a lot of things that seem to be wrong with the Bush administration, e.g. cronyism, egregiously partisan behavior, obstruction of justice, etc. Even so, it's not clear to me that this is the type of thing that the NYT should really be reporting on.
