Porn accusations turn up heat
By Tim Reid

Republican dredges up his opponent's fictional scenes of incest as campaign gets even more vicious

ONE of the strangest US Senate races in recent times took an even more bizarre turn yesterday when the Republican candidate published graphic sex scenes contained in novels written by his Democrat opponent.

The fiercely contested Senate race in Virginia, which could determine control of the chamber after the midterm elections next month, has been notable for the blunders made by the Republican incumbent, George Allen, particularly the description of his opponents dark-skinned aide as a macaca.

However, with less than two weeks until polling day, Mr Allens campaign yesterday released excerpts from novels written by James Webb, his opponent, including one depicting fellatio between a father and his young son.


Some of Webbs writings are very disturbing for a candidate hoping to represent the families of Virginians in the US Senate, the Allen press release said. It accused Mr Webb of portraying women as servile, subordinate and promiscuous and assigning his female characters with base negative characteristics.

1. Not to worry
Voters are smart enough to see this as a dirty Rove trick.

3. Guess Allen doesn't read much
Webb wrote war novels. A war novel without some depravity in it wouldn't be very realistic. Like a crime novel with no violence or a love story with no passion.

Are people really that stupid and uneducated to get that? As far as I know Allen make never have written anything more than graffiti on his high school. That says a lot more about him than than Jim Webb's war novels say about him.

6. Can't have that stuff in the public Disneyland
... that 'conservatives' want to keep everyone inside of. Pleasantville. Stepford. Living inside the myth.

4. Why isn't anyone publishing Lynn Cheney's rape and lesbian chapters?
:shrug:

She's a reprehensible slug, and should be outed for her utter hypocrisy and downright horribleness as a human being.

5. If Allen's campaign had any brains they would have done this months ago
Stooping to this now just shows how desperate Allen and the GOP operatives are. It's like turning to a Plan B they didn't think was worthy unless they were despeate.

This is not like some sudden "relevation" that was passed over the transome about, oh say, learbning that some candidate dumped his wife on her sickbed for another woman.

Webb's novels were published and reviewed out in the open. And Webb is obviously not ashamed of anything he wrote.

So if Allen had wanted to try to use it to tar Webb's character, he should have done so months ago when Webb was being introduced to the public.

10. Sad Sad Truth--This stuff works--That is why he did it.
Remember John McCain SC Primary against Bush. Theoretically MCain
had a a good chance of winning. He had taken Bush down in the
NH Primary.

This smear attack knocked MCCain out of the race or it was all down hill.
"MCCain fathered an illegimate black child. (Truth, J. MCCain and
his wife adopted an Indian child at the request of Mother Theresa.

Bush Campaign got some group of Veterans to stand up and essentally
Swiftboat McCain.
Truth MCCain highly decorated POW. How the Republicans look themeselves
in the mirror is simply overwhelming to me. They will dirty up
veterans jyet send them off to be slaughterred in the same breath.

Another attack all but accused him of being Gay. "John McCain Loves
gays".

You can count on it without fail. Sex, Race, Questioning patiotism and
swiftboating will be the Hallmark Republican Attacks.

Now to Webb. Allen put out the passages (claiming such concern
for women) . These were not aimed at women by Allen. He simply
wants them played over and over because he thinks he can fire
up the Cultural Conservatives who seem to go ballistic at the
mention of sex. He wants to be sure they get out the vote.

This is typically Republican tactics and the Media is oh so
willing to oblige.

This is how Dems make mistakes. We tend to think Oh people are
not going to be turned by novels. There is a fundamentalist
section who responds to this sort of thing. Easily mnaipuated
to forget everthing important and do as the Republican intended.
Vote Republcan . They influence others and take them to the polls.
Thus nothing ever gets done in this country. Someday, someone
will go directly to that group and explain over and over
what is going on. That ad was not aimed at Women--rather,
Cultural Conservatives.

12. From O'Reilly's hot novel:
Edited on Sat Oct-28-06 02:51 PM by madmusic
Robo used his product only occasionally, but tonight was special. He had two fifteen-year-old girls who would do anything for the drug,, and he was determined to exploit the situation.

Say, baby, put that pipe down and get my pipe up, Robo said to one of the girls. She was so intoxicated she had trouble standing, but Robo was her sugar daddy, and as he sat in a filthy, imitation, leather couch, there in the living room of a run-down three-bedroom apartment, she obediently performed oral sex on him.

Five feet away, the other teenage girl sat on a mattress on the floor and watched, greedily sucking on the crack pipe Robo had passed to her. Edgar looked over and grinned, showing yellow, decaying teeth. Obviously, he preferred oral sex to oral hygiene.

Youre next, girl, and I want you to do her too, he ordered. As Robo took the crack pipe back the girl groggily nodded her consent. Inhaling deeply, Robo blew the cocaine smoke out through his nose and mouth. The bitter taste left him feeling powerful, energized, and free of worry. He was bad and he was flush.

It's enough to make you wonder if the same thing that drove Foley to push sex offender laws is what drove O'Reilly.
