Barbara Boxer, Spinner Of Tales
The novel follows Ellen from her days as an idealistic college student, through romantic entanglements, to a difficult marriage to a rising political star. When her husband is killed, she steps into his campaign for the Senate and is elected. On the eve of a crucial senate vote, her personal and political worlds collide when her right-wing adversaries recruit her former lover to sabotage her credibility and career.Follow me (as I shudder in tremulous delight) on a voyage of discovery brought to us by the manly arms of INDC Journal. There is a link to the original article and he has scored ... excerpts. Excerpts guaranteed as accurate as a Milwaukee voter registration card. And they say bloggers aren't to be taken seriously! Hah! Take this, and this!
I think Senator Boxer's novel should be entitled "The Thrust Of His Argument".
Odd - I posted about that big mouth just the other day - compared her to the better female she tried to slam. Some of the gullible think her abusive questioning showed her as a "get tough" senator. In reality, she was a disgrace to her party - a party whose majority voted for Dr. Rice.
Too funny Mama, too funny!
Well, they're expensive, so I think we should at least get our money's worth in terms of hilarity.
Isn't politicians writing books often a type of racket? Didn't somebody get nabbed for having most of his bulk book sales occur to lobbyists? And didn't some conservative Senator's wife have a sort of racy historical novel in her background?
What immediately struck me when I read INDC's post was that Boxer is going to get a very direct monetary return for having good national name recognition on that book, and so I guess we can expect a lot of pretty headline-grabbing positions from her through November.
And did you see the quote? The one where she said she felt as if Condoleeza Rice "attacked her"? When you have a name like Boxer.... I think the blogosphere should help ghostwrite her book, don't you? This is all too funny to ignore. The possibilities are thrilling!
