Getting screwed by politicians

On the day of the Iowa caucuses, it's good to remember just how much politics is filled with sex. Henry Kissinger said power is the ultimate aphrodisiac.

I've never fucked a politician. But I'm happy to guide you to the recovered diaries of a girl who did, Washingtonienne, on Wonkette.

Washingtonienne, you may recall, was a young woman, Jessica Cutler, canoodling her way through the halls of power and describing it on a blog. She was fired when her identity was revealed. "Everything is true," Cutler told the Washington Post. "It's so cliched. It's like, 'There's a slutty girl on the Hill?' There's millions of 'em," she said, laughing. "A lot of my friends are way worse than me."

The result was a bone-hardening/panty dampening scandal in 2004 -- if you can set aside the yuckiness of hypocritical "family values" politicians. The original diaries were taken down. Jessica seems to be doing well with her own blog now. But the original still makes juicy reading. Enjoy!
