I want you to wreck it.

Benjamin Hackett is more than just your average right-wing blogger. Sure, he's interned for Sean Hannity and his latest opinion piece was a drawn-out character assasination of Cindy Sheehan, but he also writes some titillating/hilarious erotic fiction (text NSFW). May he carry on the great tradition.

Oh my God, this is the most hilarious, glorified rape scene I have ever encountered! My favorite part is the following:

"He threw the rapper in front of her, but the condom itself found the garbage can."

You'd think he'd have time to employ spell-check, but judging by the quality, I doubt he had time to proof-read or edit.

She stood up, still staring at her many times lover.

Did this guy even pass a first-year college writing course?

I'm almost reminded of a quote from one of William F. Buckley's turgid wankfests.

So I explored his site a little bit and checked out his "poetry", and came across this gem:

Holy effing Shit

He walks
Holy fucking shit is it dark
He darts those dark brown eyes around
Holy fucking shit is it dark
He smiles....no smirks...
Holy fucking shit is it easy


There are no words.

The alleged erotica contains many, many deliciously inept sentences, but this is my favorite:

______ was about to achieve, but he held off.

Even in context, it's difficult to determine whether ______ is holding off an orgasm, or a 1600 SAT score. I suspect Mr. Hackett has revealed to the reader far more than he intended.

[Confidential to rbf1138: A "great tradition" would draw on a history beyond the past eighteen months. Unless you yourself are under the age of ten, which may well be the case. If not--show some pride in your craft and google up something remotely plausible.]

For those who enjoy (in whatever sense) proto-libidinous prose stylings, I recommend the Gruniad's annual Bad Sex Award. This year's winner, readable here, achieves to us courtesy of Tom Wolfe. Don't miss the archives.

Nah, fistion would cross the line from erotic to pornographic, and that would just be un-Republican.

"He threw the rapper in front of her, but the condom itself found the garbage can."

So is this, like, standard frat-boy interracial wife-swap fantasy or what, because I have no other idea how to parse the bit about the rapper?

"I recommend the Gruniad's annual Bad Sex Award. This year's winner, readable here, achieves to us courtesy of Tom Wolfe."

Well this is all coming together then, vetiver. Bush was recommending that smutty-ridiculous Charlotte Simmons book to everybody, toss that in with Lynne Cheney's previous life as a writer of terrible lesbian erotica, and we have ourselves a Republican tradition as old and authentic as war and jingoism.

No, no, y'all got it wrong. See, _____ was annoyed to notice that there was a rapper in front of Liz, instead of the donkey dressed in a priest's cassock and holding a barbie doll in its mouth that he'd paid extra for, so he threw the rapper in a fit of rage.

The defenestration of Snoop Prague. Surely you've heard of this.

From the first paragraph of the Sheehan piece: "The 'Bring them Home Now' tour made a stop in Schenley on September 11th bringing with it its standard fare of allegations, lies and methodology of preying on the emotions of those whom hurt the most."

Reading this almost makes me want to drop out of college. Honestly, if someone so "educated" has the lack of sense to post something so horribly laughable as this, what use is there? Know the right people, and you can throw your own turds and get somewhere in life.

Let's pay respect to the true classics, now.
Eyeing a slender female crouched alone at a nearby bench, Grignr advanced wishing to wholesomely occupy his time. The flickering torches cast weird shafts of luminescence dancing over the half naked harlot of his choice, her stringy orchid twines of hair swaying gracefully over the lithe opaque nose, as she raised a half drained mug to her pale red lips.

Glancing upward, the alluring complexion noted the stalwart giant as he rapidly approached. A faint glimmer sparked from the pair of deep blue ovals of the amorous female as she motioned toward Grignr, enticing him to join her. The barbarian seated himself upon a stool at the wenches side, exposing his body, naked save for a loin cloth brandishing a long steel broad sword, an iron spiraled battle helmet, and a thick leather sandals, to her unobstructed view.

"Thou hast need to occupy your time, barbarian",questioned the female?

"Only if something worth offering is within my reach." Stated Grignr,as his hands crept to embrace the tempting female, who welcomed them with open willingness.

"From where do you come barbarian, and by what are you called?" Gasped the complying wench, as Grignr smothered her lips with the blazing touch of his flaming mouth.

The engrossed titan ignored the queries of the inquisitive female, pulling her towards him and crushing her sagging nipples to his yearning chest. Without struggle she gave in, winding her soft arms around the harshly bronzedhide of Grignr corded shoulder blades, as his calloused hands caressed her firm protruding busts.

"You make love well wench," Admitted Grignr as he reached for the vessel of potent wine his charge had been quaffing.

For those who don't know, Wolfdog is quoting from The Eye of Argon, something of a classic in sf circles, for all the wrong reasons.
Personal favourite quote:
"Consciousness returned to Grignr in stygmatic pools as his mind gradually cleared of the cobwebs cluttering its inner recesses, yet the stygian cloud of charcoal ebony remained. An incompatible shield of blackness, enhanced by the bleak abscense of sound."

From the first paragraph of the Sheehan piece
I realize now its not constructive to point out the problem without providing a solution, so here goes:

"made a stop ...bringing with" better: "arrived ...bringing"

"bring with it its" better: "bringing along its"

"allegations, lies and methodology of" better: "allegations, lies, and ..."

"methodology" better: "method" or "methods"

"those whom hurt the most" better: "those hurting most"

And that's only one sentence.

The Sheehan piece is really really poorly written, and it makes me sad. It's one thing to disagree with Sheehan, even to savage her in a column, but to fail to do that because (although you claim to be a writer) you can't even write, that's just pathetic.

That is some terrible writing, and I've experienced the horror of Thundercats slash fiction. The truly sad part is that despite his ineptitude, he will probably get a sweet gig at Heritage or one of the million other conservative think tanks simply because they have the money to throw at even the worst students, as long as they hew to the neocon standard.

The? Enemy? stands at the gates
Eyes averted, Inverted to his own

Impossible? I state

posted by octobersurprise at 6:41 AM on September 14, 2005


StickCarpet, this guy's use of "whom" implies to me that he's just discovered the accusative case and wants to rub it in everyone's face about how he uses it and others don't. Meanwhile, it makes his writing appear all the more stilted. Keep in mind that he's in college and thinks that stilted writing is a sign of professionalism.

That said, good editing work. Do you do any freelance editing?
