Here are a few sites that say it better than me:
- Smart Bitches Who Love Trashy Novels: on the Ideal Political Candidate. (This is one of my favorite sites ever, so take some time to look around!)
- Examples of Jim Webb's bad writing (he's running for Senate.) Now granted, the examples shown are gross, but they're taken out of context AND they're fiction. However, he SHOULD be lampooned for being a truly terrible writer.
- Apparently Susan Combs (running for Comptroller in Texas) has written a "pornographic book." I think her opponent has a pretty loose definition of 'pornographic.' Based on the cover, it looks like one of those fairly tame Harlequins from the 80s. (The ones I would sneak out of my mom's room to read. After the great "Are You There God? It's Me Margaret" scare of 1984, I was very careful about what I was caught reading!)
