An incident in which Cheney's new chief of staff, David S. Addington, requested that John Wooden remove a parody about Lynne Cheney from his web site, Whitehouse.org, when Cheney had more serious things to worry about, demonstrate how Cheney's staff overreacts and overreaches, pushing policies that end up embarrassing President Bush. Addington has been with Cheney for many years, and his service is market by an obsession with fighting all attempts to limit presidential power.
