Honey, you just don't do that where you eat.
Everbody's talkin about it, and while I totally don't do politics here, you just gotta know that some people -- no matter how long they've lived somewhere, and no matter how well they've served their constituency -- just. don't. get. it.
So this Texan dude -- Texas, as in home of RWA national and one of the largest romance readin' populaces with about a billion romance writers-- who shall remain nameless is running for some kind of comptroller (thanks Bella Marilyn for the tip).
He thinks that his family of voters will value his moral judgment and forthrightness in pointing out to them the fact that his opponent Once Wrote A Romance Novel.
In 1990. Which he has termed, "pornographic."
He also says the fact that her name is printed at the top of every other page of the novel shows her lust for greed and the sinful spotlight!
I won't provide you the link, but you can just google on over to something like, I don't, know Texas Comptroller Romance Novel Pornography, and you might come up with something.
Please file this under: goofballs who could make me vote "across the aisle" were I their constituent.

Encore due! Portion of map above from RWA Market Report '05.
Encore tre! Nope, he's not from Texas, but Francesco Totti I like to look at when I'm reading about colossally boneheaded politicians. Totti could be from Southern Italy. I dunno. I just like to look at him on a day when it's SNOWING flurries in Minnesota. Youbetcha.
Encore quattro! ellie, allissa, Rachd, nina! You've all won "Hot Water" prizes from Kathryn Jordan! Email me with your snail mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
