What a Tangled Webb…

James Webb is trying to be the next Democratic Senator from Virginia. He had some good times at the expense of his opponent George Allen who called one of Webb’s staffers Macaca, which is supposed to be some kind of racist slur, though Allen claims that he did not know that. Well, what goes around comes around and tonight is the night Webb gets the October surprise. Webb has written several fictional novels where he is rather descriptive when discussing sex. Now, if he were just some fiction writer this would not matter and his stuff would be no worse than a romance novel. But he is not a fiction writer. He wants to be a Senator. In his book Lost Soldiers he wrote this:

Lost Soldiers: “A shirtless man walked toward them along a mud pathway. His muscles were young and hard, but his face was devastated with wrinkles. His eyes were so red that they appeared to be burned by fire. A naked boy ran happily toward him from a little plot of dirt. The man grabbed his young son in his arms, turned him upside down, and put the boy’s penis in his mouth.”

Bantam Books, NY, 1st Edition, 2001, (hard cover), page 333.
Quote is from para. 10,.Chap. 34.

With the uproar over the Mark Foley situation this can not sit well with the Democrats. Though this is part of a book that he wrote and he wants to be in the Senate. The big deal? Well, he was not describing sex as in normal sex, he was describing a father committing incestuous, homosexual, underage sex. If this came out of his mind, can he be any better than Mark Foley?

Some, especially Democrats, will excuse this and say it is no big deal. If he were not running for the Senate it would be just another sick book. But this man wants to be in elected office. Sorry, this guy is done. Allen’s press release indicates that Allen is upset with the way Webb portrays women.

Webb’s novels disturbingly and consistently – indeed, almost uniformly – portray women as servile, subordinate, inept, incompetent, promiscuous, perverted, or some combination of these. In novel after novel, Webb assigns his female characters base, negative characteristics. In thousands of pages of fiction penned by Webb, there are few if any strong, admirable women or positive female role models.

Hey Webb, Surprise!

    This is great! This isn’t some unsubstantiated allegation about some unprovable event that happened 25 or 30 years ago intended as a political smear, but a currently available porn novel I can go buy from Barnes and Noble or Amazon. It’s hard, concrete fact, and I can read the passages in the comfort of my own living room. Its about time the Conservatives took off the gloves and started shoveling back at the BAP (Benedict Arnold Party – Dhimocrats), and the good news is that nobody had to make it up – Its available in the public domain for all to read.
