Barbara Boxer: Senator, Lover, Novelist. [Dave at Garfield Ridge]

Between work and posting on two great blogs that taste great together, I didn’t have a lot of time to read my usual haunts, like The Corner. So, even if it's old hat to some of you, I totally missed this story:

Senator Barbara Boxer is writing a novel.

The novel will tell a tale of personal friendships and betrayal, political in-fighting and pragmatism. The novel follows Ellen from her days as an idealistic college student, through romantic entanglements, to a difficult marriage to a rising political star. When her husband is killed, she steps into his campaign for the Senate and is elected. On the eve of a crucial senate vote, her personal and political worlds collide when her right-wing adversaries recruit her former lover to sabotage her credibility and career.

Now, I can't be certain, but this sounds autobiographical. Except that part about the dead husband. Boxer’s divorced, but her husband is very much alive.

For now.

Hey, you’ve got to write what you know. And if Barbara Boxer knows anything, it’s passionate, hot romance.

Really, her novel sounds action packed. An incredibly riveting page-turner, in the tradition of the Da Vinci Code, or Highlights for Children. Man, that crazy Goofus, I just can't get enough of his silly antics!

I sure do hope Senator Boxer goes on Oprah to promote her novel. Because Oprah really asks the tough questions, you know? Hey, if we're lucky, maybe Boxer will appear on the same episode Oprah wheels out her next barrow of fat!

Hmmm. I wonder what other book ideas might be out there waiting in Congress?

-- Senator Ted Kennedy, “Zen And The Art Of Defensive Driving Under The Influence

-- Barney Frank, “The Homeowners Guide To Discrete Subletting

-- John McCain, “Choosing Sides: Why I’m A Republican Democrat

-- Chuck Hagel, “Sides I Choose: Why I’m A Democrat Republican

-- Trent Lott, "Things You Should Never Say At A Birthday Party."

-- Jim Jeffords, "Seven Habits Of Highly Ineffective People."

-- The General Printing Office, “Cox, Dicks, and Swett: The Best Names In Congress, 1787-2005

-- John Lieberman, “101 Yiddish Words For Irrelevance

-- John Kerry, “The Irishman Who Went Up A River And Came Down A Presidential Loser

-- Charlie Rangel, “Things I Like To Snack: A Coffee Table Book

-- Joe Biden, “John Grisham’s The Firm
