Made a Good Lawyer is a thread written by shiftygiant.

In 1995, a young, charismatic politician decides that he could one day guide America's ship of state.

His name: Theodore Robert Bundy.

Good ol' Bundy, by putting his charm and talent to good use rises from prosecutor to US Senator. With 1996 coming up, he soon sets his sights on the top job in America...


  • Amoral Attorney: Ted Bundy is a prosecutor who is noted for being a little too liberal with asking for death sentences. So yeah.
  • Drugs Are Bad: An in-universe Dole/Bundy campaign ad featured Clinton's famous "I didn't inhale" statement, followed by an image of a child about to inject heroin.
  • Faux Affably Evil: Bundy proves to be quite charming, but underneath that is a darker picture...
  • Hypocrite: In the darkest sense. Bundy seeks to punish serial killers, and he has the gall to call gay people necrophiles.
  • Leno Device: Appears on the Late Show, where he recounts to Letterman one of his hobbies: cooking veal.
  • Let No Crisis Go to Waste: Bundy builds his reputation by helping out survivors of the Oklahoma City Bombing and earns public sympathy after being injured in the bombing of the Olympic Games in Atlanta.
  • Politically Incorrect Villain: Bundy comparing gay people to necrophiliacs, although he does publicly apologize for this statement.
  • President Evil: Bundy got to be president by 2001... although when we see him, he's being interrogated by DC police.
  • Villain with Good Publicity: Bundy becomes a popular tough on crime prosecutor, a popular senator, and reaches out to conservatives by speaking out for protecting the family.
  • Villain Protagonist: The TL focuses on Bundy's political career.
  • Would Hurt a Child: It's heavily implied that Bundy murdered Jack Kemp's granddaughter and made it look like suicide just to keep Kemp too grief-stricken to be on the Republican ticket.
