Mouthbreathing California Senator Barbara Boxer (who, to continue the Robert Byrd theme, referred to the former Night Rider as "the love of her life") apparently writes bad novels in her spare time. (I had no idea.) Anyway, NRO's John Miller has read her latest, so we don't have to (thank Christ): Boxer Shorts. [Link via Power Line.] John humorously excerpts some great (by great I mean awful) bits, and one really disturbing bit in which a guy watches a stud trying to bang a mare who's totally not into him, from this largely autobiographical crapfest. See if you can spot the cognitive dissonance by comparing these two paragraphs:
It had been a particularly intense day in [Senator Ellen Fischer's] D.C. office, with a steady stream of meetings, e-mails, and phone calls from organizations and constituents, all urging her to step up her opposition to Professor Frida Hernandez's nomination to the Supreme Court. There was little time left for any attempt to block the confirmation of the ultra-conservative professor. ... Ellen, a member of the [Judiciary] committee, had sought to challenge the nominee's strongly suspected bias against Roe v. Wade. ... Ellen knew that, once on the Court, Hernandez would help turn back the clock on Court decisions that Ellen believed were vital to the people.
(Emphasis mine.) And:
That was a defining moment, when Ellen knew how she'd spend the rest of her life — that she'd been put here on earth to save its endangered children.
(Emphasis again mine). Huh. She must mean saving only those endangered children lucky enough to not have been killed in the womb.
