8. People should be free to write whatever they want
Who cares what the sexual habits of people in the White House are? The Right Wing spent 8 years trying to smear Clinton based on his sex habits. I couldn't stand it when the Right Wing did it, and it pisses me off just as much to see the Left Wing do it. Hell, if Ron Jeremy was the most qualified person to be president, I would have no problem voting for him.

Although Libby's book does strike me as a bit "unusual", I don't believe in censorship - and will not hold it against him. Why do you criticize Lynn Cheney for writing about prostitution, attempted rape, and a lesbian affair - are these not legitimate topics? Many great works of literature have contained many of these same themes (although I doubt that Lynn Chaney's book would qualify as either "great" or "literature"). Criticize Libby for leading us into a war based on lies, and for putting the life of a CIA agent at risk; the sexual nature of his book should be the least of our concerns.
