I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby is (a) Vice President Dick Cheney's former chief of staff, (b) facing a five-count indictment from the special prosecutor in the CIA leak case, (c) the author of The Apprentice, a book that is, in the words of The New Yorker's Lauren Collins, "Libby's 1996 entry in the long and distinguished annals of the right-wing dirty novel," or (d) all of the above.

Wow, he makes this guy look, well, moderately less untalented. What is it with these guys?

Patriotic porn. So has Scooter cracked yet?

He was also "Adviser To The President," something little noted lately in the press covering this story but was at one time loudly trumpeted. Wonder why the difference?

Now I know why they want to take away our porn. Competition!

I wonder if he and Lynne Cheney collaborate writing dirty novels? Does Dick know about it if they have? Do they do their best work in the boudoir?

File with Lynne Cheney's lesbian romance novel Sisters (discussed here previously).

Puritanical self-loathing people write terrible porn. News at 11.

At age ten the madam put the child in a cage with a bear trained to couple with young girls so the girls would be frigid and not fall in love with their patrons. They fed her through the bars and aroused the bear with a stick when it seemed to lose interest.

How does one arouse a bear with a stick?!?

Very carefully.

Sure, bears are the best way to do that. What the hell.

Puritanical self-loathing people write terrible porn.

The point, I think, is that the puritanical self-loathers on the right who go into politics seem to be more interested in *publishing* their porn. Deer-fucking *and* bear-fucking, wow.

[libby's book] ... tells the tale of Setsuo, a courageous virgin innkeeper who finds himself on the brink of love and war.

SETSUUUUUOOOOO!!!!!


It rhymes with tetsuo. Get it?

Woah. Woah. Hold on. What?

That's just too shocking for a witty comeback. The VP's chief of staff wrote about bestiality?

I can't even think now.

I'm sorry, I didn't think I was going to talk about "man on dog" with a United States senator, it's sort of freaking me out.

You people can snark away, but it's really nothing to laugh about. An ex-girlfriend of mine was touched inappropriately by a bear once, and she spent years working through the ordeal in therapy.

What do you expect from a grown man named "Scooter?"
posted by Jon-o at 8:18 AM on November 1, 2005


This is fucking stupid. Everyone knows that ursine lovers are kind and gentle, and copulate longtemps and dexterously to bring their partners, shaking with orgasmic delight, to the very acme of rapture - until they float gently back to the safety of their warm embrace and lie exhausted but satisfied in their oh no wait I'm thinking of sailors. Sorry.

OK. Over lunch, I acquired several caged bears, and have been trying various methods of arousal on them. I must report that sticks do nothing but anger the bears. Offering them raw fish just makes them hungry. So far, the best bet seems to be to slip them copies of Nugget magazine. The April 2004 issue seems to be their favorite, but I have yet to determine why.

So... does this mean Cheney is so far gone that he needs his wife to indulge in lesbian fantasy while his co-worker goes on about beastiality just so the man can get a hardon?

Maybe Bob Dole should give him a call.

Man I love Amazon user reviews:

Personally, I find the Japanese weird and constipated beyond all reason. But they have developed a helluva good cuisine (love that wasabi!), have fought some amazing fights and are pretty fabulous engineers. So, if you find them strange but fascinating, this book will enhance your understand of their tortured, demented souls.

COBRA! -- I suspect you might have the hairy-gay-man kind of bear... do they have moustaches? Wallets? You might have better luck arousing the giant-claw-can-disembowel-you-with-a-glance, mouth-full-of-huge-fangs, weighs-five-hundred-pounds, runs-thirtyfive-mph kind of bear. For that kind of bear, nothing gets them hornier than threatening their cubs.

I'll be watching from over here.

Oh, and if you found them through personal ads, they're almost certainly the hairy-gay-man kind. As you know, Bob, the other kind are too proud for personals and prefer to be set up by their friends.

Reminds me of the CGM from the 'X-Files.'

Political hacks are so often failed novelists or artists or musicians it's cliched.

Perhaps it's because they are so poor at expressing or exploring those feelings and ideas.

Ah, well. Might as well put them out of their misery.

It seems to me the White House is filled with people who have sexual proclivities that make those of the much-feared HoMoSeXuAlS look downright tame.

I mean, really, prepubscent girls being raped by bears? Quite simply, that is way more sick than almost anything I've read or seen on the Internet.

And this man has the ear and presumable mind of the President? Sheeeyit, reality is always far stranger than fiction.

Misplaced modifier alert.

Nonsense. That the madam is a ten year old girl only makes it more deliciously kinky.

I dunno. Is bear-rape porn really weirder or sicker than tentacle-rape porn? At least bears aren't monsters, and might be sort of warm and cuddly when they're done raping you, unlike Cthulhu-esque nightmare horrors. And if you happen to be rescued, an ursine rapist can be *ahem* converted into a classy rug, but not an alien/demonic tentacle monster.

The hell you say! Just last night, my wife and I were cuddling on our Cthulu-skin rug, reading each other passages from the works of Lynne Cheney.

Sure, you can make a rug from Cthulhu.

But not a classy rug. Only a shameful, tasteless, squamous rug that makes you gibber in horror.
posted by ROU_Xenophobe at 8:23 AM on November 2, 2005


Oh, we were shameful, tasteless, and gibbering in horror; I just wasn't sure if it was the rug or the Lynne Cheney.
