The Novel Republicans Don't Want You to Read


Since the topic of literature has been so very popular in Virginia's blogosphere lately, Howling Latina thought she'd try to get her hands on a copy of the erotic book Sisters by Second Lady Lynn Cheney.

You know, just to do a little analysis mano-a-mano with literature scholar Spark it Up!

But alas, no copy is available since its publisher refused to reissue the novel in spite of great interest from others. USA Today reported last year that Mrs. Cheney claimed "the book did not represent her 'best work."
Cheney's attorney, Robert Barnett... contacted the publisher, which agreed this week to pull the novel.

Why, that's rubbish. Mrs. Cheney is simply being too modest. Let the audience be the judge of that sentiment through book sales, for there is no nobler truth that the Grand Old Party's core platform that capitalism reign supreme.

Indeed, it's a lamentable shame that the simple fraternity of literature lovers are deprived of such lofty words and work; only copies at $282.50 a pop are available on Amazon.com.

Well, here is the sweet fragrance from one of her passages:

"Let us go away together, away from the anger and imperatives of men. There will be only the two of us, and we shall linger through long afternoons of sweet retirement. In the evenings I shall read to you while you work your cross-stitch in the firelight. And then we shall go to bed, our bed, my dearest girl," Miss Travers had written to Helen."

Yes, the cross-stitching is all that is left for us poor saps who can't afford to fork $282.50 to read quite possibly one of the greatest American "pieces" of lesbian erotica.

Comments:
Funny, but I didn't think Lynn Cheney was running for anything.
 
But you left out the N***** and banana stories!
 
Yes, I suppose if authors of literature cannons (i.e., Willie Shakespeare and others) were alive today and were to try to run for public office, why their coarse heathen writings would condemn them for sure, as is proper.

And let us not fail to bow our heads and give thanks to such stalwart moral pillars like Republican Congressman Mark Foley of Florida for guiding us away from the filth of Jim Webb's novels.
 
This is not Florida. What does Foley have to do with this? I could talk about Ed Barber and how he is a fine democrat....
 
Oh, just another GOP Republican hypocrite, like your hero, Sen. George Felix Macacawitz.
