George Allen's sister writes sexy stuff; proves she doesn't know what a comb is
So THAT'S why the Allen camp attacked Senator-elect Jim Webb's books; they were afraid Allen himself would be questioned about his sister's dirty book.
Sen. George Allen’s sister wrote steamy short storiesNICE. Violent sex, children smoking pot, hedonism, profanity...but war stories written from first hand accounts should be stricken from library shelves and covered in shrink-wrap with huge warnings on the cover at the Barnes and Noble.

In the final throes of Sen. George Allen’s failed reelection bid, the Virginia Republican took aim at some seamier passages of fiction written by his rival, Democratic Sen.-elect Jim Webb. But we wonder what Allen thinks of some other fiction that hits a little closer to home.
Early fiction written by Allen’s sister, Jennifer, depicts scenes that might make even former Marine Webb blush. "Better Get Your Angel On," Jennifer Allen’s 1989 collection of short stories, includes one story in which a couple engages in violent sexual acts while their child watches and smokes a joint. Other passages depict sex, violence and profanity.
The prose is written in a sort of disorienting, Faulkneresque style. A review from Publishers Weekly that accompanies the book’s listing on Amazon.com noted that with "insistent, arresting voices that hurtle the reader through glimpses of hedonistic, drug-speeded-up lives, some of the 13 very short stories in this debut collection succeed on their technical brilliance and shock value."
Webb, a former Marine who served as secretary of the Navy, is the author of six novels, according to his website. Allen’s campaign trotted out passages from several of them, saying they were "demeaning" to women and "dehumanizing."
Jennifer Allen’s most noted work is "Fifth Quarter: The Scrimmage of a Football Coach’s Daughter," an autobiography that attracted attention because it depicted her father, beloved NFL coach George Allen, as removed from the family and said George was often cruel towards her.
Calls to Allen’s office weren’t returned by press time.
Typical Repunlican mindset.
I plan on going to the library tonight to see if this book is available; if it's as hot as it sounds, I'll repost some steamy goodness for you.
