The Erotic Elephant

We don't read Playgirl magazine, but thank goodness Matt Drudge does, or we wouldn't know about the fascinating revelation its editor, Michele Zipp, makes in the April issue. Drudge reports Zipp acknowledges that she is a Republican:
How could a member of the media who produces adult entertainment for women possibly side with conservatives from the red states? Zipp spells it out. "Those on the right are presumed to be all about power and greed--two really sexy traits in the bedroom. They want it, they want it now, and they'll do anything to get it. And I'm not talking about some pansy-assed victory, I'm talking about full on jackpot, satisfaction for all."
"The Democrats of the Sixties were all about making love and not war while a war-loving Republican is a man who would fight, bleed, sacrifice, and die for his country. Could you imagine what that very same man would do for his wife in the bedroom?" asks Zipp.
Maybe this explains why Teresa Heinz Kerry, who has been married to men of both parties, appears less than enthralled with her second husband, a Democrat. As the Seattle Post-Intelligencer notes, during last year's presidential campaign she "seemed to scorn the political wife's expected role of fixing her husband in adoring upward gaze."
She did do her duty, though: "Theresa Heinz Kerry campaigned tirelessly--'When I put out, I put out.' " Just lie back and think of France.
