I missed the whole Washingtonienne thing while I was gone.
Weird. In the two weeks I was abroad, she became well-known for posting her sexual exploits in her blog anonymously, was found out and fired from her job as a staff ass(istant) on the Hill, was revealed to the (Internet) world, and now is thinking of looking for a job in New York, where, presumably, they don't mind this sort of thing as much, and will probably give her a book deal or something.
Apparently, she was officially fired for using federal property to post in her blog. (Like nobody ever does that.)
But do her stories of fucking a high-ranking government official and routinely taking monetary handouts from him to supplement her $25K/year income really surprise anyone? This city is all about power: gaining it, weilding it, and abusing it.
Some old coot wants to fuck a girl a third his age up the ass; since he is a high-ranking government official, and she is a lowly-paid assistant, he can cajole her into service by "supplimenting her income", and she will take the money and try to make some justification in her own mind for why she shouldn't be called "whore". In D.C., this probably happened like six other times today.
Meanwhile, I still don't have a book deal. Who do I have to fuck to get a book deal? Condoleeza Rice? EWWWWW!
OK, fine. Just as long as I don't have to call her "Hot Chocolate."
