Fornicating As Rome Burns?

Kelly McCormack has a really, really interesting article in today's Hill newspaper:

Was Henry Kissinger right when he said, “Power is the ultimate aphrodisiac”?

Seeking an answer to that question, The Hill set out recently to discover whether dating has changed in the last six months, and whether Democrats, newly empowered, now have an edge on Republicans when it comes to dating prowess.

Many GOP aides say that it’s the same-old, same-old around the nation’s capital — they are sexier and they dress better. But some Democrats claim that being in the majority has meant more partying and more dates.

Due to the nature of this story — sex and dating — few aides were willing to discuss the subject on the record for fear of getting into trouble with their offices. They were also wary of having their personal lives or dating tastes made public.

The bottom line: Romantic opportunities have increased for Democrats. For one thing, there are now more of them around Capitol Hill — all the better for socializing. And some aides and political experts have noticed that Democrats have begun to dress the part and are looking better.
Fools names and fools faces are often seen in public places.

We wonder (again) what GAO head David Walker would have to do to get ink like this.

Maybe he should set himself on fire.
