    SlashFic Dot Gov

    Some days I am a sick, sick person. I try to be a good citizen. I try to uphold certain standards of public debate when I discuss politics and government policy. I don't believe in ad hominem attacks on people holding opposing positions to mine. Yet... There is a part of me that delights in coarse suggestion.

Soooo, my awful, very nasty idea is pairing prominent politicians in sex scenes. No, no one really wants to imagine this stuff because it's enough to drive you to a hermitage.

    Tom DeLay reached around and tugged hard on Bill Frist's nipple ring. Bill groaned and arched his back. The Senate cloakroom was empty. Tom began to move faster.
    "DeLay, DeLay," moaned Bill with strangled passion.
    "I can't delay any more," grunted Tom as he...
    I'm so happy to have dragged public discourse into the gutter with me. No need to thank me. The look on your face is thanks enough. Hi-yo, Silver! Away!
