I'm not Liberal, I'm paying attention.

For that Conservative in your family...

A pair of spell binding tails, great stocking stuffers for the Republican in your family this Christmas! Inside the dank corners of Scooter Libby's mind

God, I'm glad I'm a wholesome porn liberal. Sure, many sexual practices get referenced all the time here on the street corner known as Pandagon, but they are wholesome American ones like BDSM and anal sex and "contracepting", certainly nothing like what you might find in, say, a 1996 novel written by Scooter Libby.

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.

All similiarities to the training required to be married to a Republican politician purely coincidental.

Shakes Sis has more. There is a lot I could say about this but I'll just note in passing that it took Libby 20 years to finish this book. Which means that this passage about poking a horny bear with a stick is the product of a labor of love that lasted longer than many marriages.
Sisters Editorial Reviews
Book Description From Lynne Cheney, the wife of Vice President Dick Cheney, comes a riveting tale of women in the American frontier. The novel of a strong and beautiful woman who broke all the rules of the American frontier...

Sophie Dymond had overcome nineteenth-century prejudices to succeed as publisher of a hugely popular women's magazine. But when she left New York to revisit her native Wyoming, where her sister had died mysteriously, she left her prestige and power far behind. Waiting for Sophie was a world where women were treated either as decorative figurines or as abject sexual vassals...where wives were led to despise the marriage act and prostitutes pandered to husbands' hungers...where the relationship between women and men became a kind of guerilla warfare in which women were forced to band together for the strength they needed and at times for the love they wanted. In her effort to grasp the meaning of her sister's life and death, Sophie discovers the secret that tainted her life and begins to understand the experience of the vast majority of silent, trapped women. About the Author Lynne Cheney, wife of Vice President Dick Cheney, has spent much of her professional life writing and speaking about the importance of history. Mrs. Cheney earned her B.A. from Colorado College, her Master of Arts from the University of Colorado, and her Ph.D. with a specialization in 19th century British literature from the University of Wisconsin. She is the recipient of awards and honorary degrees from numerous colleges and universities. Vice President and Mrs. Cheney were married in 1964. They have two grown daughters, Mary and Elizabeth, and three granddaughters.
