Bush appointees having trouble finding jobs

According to an article in the Wall Street Journal, the roughly 3,000 political appointees of the Bush administration are having trouble finding jobs. How much trouble?  Roughly twice as much difficulty as similar appointees from the administrations of Bush I, Reagan, or even Clinton.

This is ironic for so many reasons. Why does nobody want to hire them? Are they having trouble finding jobs because of the bad economy, for which they at least partly responsible? Are they difficult to employ because they are tainted by the association with Dubya? Or did the Bush administration routinely appoint substandard C-average people? Or is this just karma?

Inquiring minds want to know!
