Personally I'm in favor of Larry Flynt's smut bounties, but I hope he exposes any Democrats he catches as quickly as any Republicans.

"Have you had a sexual encounter with a current member of the United States Congress or a high-ranking government official?" read a full-page advertisement taken out by Larry Flynt's pornographic magazine in Sunday's Washington Post.

It offered $1 million for documented evidence of illicit intimate relations with a congressman, senator or other prominent officeholder. A toll-free number and e-mail address were provided.

Flynt did this in before in the 1999 aftermath of the Monica Lewinsky investigation but focused his energies on Republicans. Even still, any politician (of any party) who isn't capable of maintaining his family and his dignity has no business leading our country.

(Perhaps the best bit from that 1999 link is:

The trajectory is becoming a familiar one: Stories of dubious provenance, ignored by the traditional press, find a home in the fringe media or supermarket tabloids; the reports make the rounds on the Internet, where they transmogrify and take on a new life; soon, they bubble up to the surface on talk radio, cable talk shows and late-night monologues; finally they appear in more traditional conservative publications. The story achieves a level of acceptance at every stage.

But this time, the so-called mainstream media have resisted, at least so far.

Is Drudge fading out? Have the news media developed a backbone?

I'm sure J.D. Lasica has enjoyed the past eight years!)
