John Dean, former Nixon White House Counsel and author, blasted former Vice President Dick Cheney's memoir In My Time on Countdown with Keith Olbermann.

"He is a classic authoritarian personality," he told Olbermann on Thursday night. "We are seeing it in his book. He certainly demonstrated it as vice president."

"And while he can set rules for others, he has his own rules, and he can't see any hypocrisy in what he is doing."

In his book, Cheney reportedly attacks former Secretary of State Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice.
