Politics is a dirty business

First George Allen attacks the man who is running for the same Senate seat, James Webb, on the basis of his novels. Not to be outdone, Slate went trolling through other politician's novels for the "naughy bits." Take the quiz on their website to see if you can match up the right passage with the likes of: Barbara Boxer, William F. Buckley, Jimmy Carter, Lynne Cheney, Winston Churchill, William Cohen, Gary Hart, Susan Combs (Republican candidate for Texas comptroller), Newt Gingrich, Lewis "Scooter" Libby Jr., Joseph Nye, Kenneth Starr, William Weld, and Webb. (Full disclosure: language is a bit vivid. And I think Jame Webb's is the worst. Hopefully he is a better politican than writer.)
