Sexy Webb

I have plenty of thoughts on the Allen campaigns "discovery" of the Jim Webb books, primarily that it is insulting to his constituents and I think it will backfire. I may expound on those tomorrow, but at least this Washington Post story on the controversy ends with some humor:

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), himself a Vietnam war hero who has endorsed Allen, praises "Lost Soldiers" on the book jacket. "It captures well the lingering scars of the war," he says. "A novel of revenge and redemption that tells us much about both where Vietnam is headed and where it has been."

An aide to McCain said Friday she could not reach the senator.

Yeah, right.
