Webb Says Hey, I Really Saw That Shit

Weird:

The campaign of Republican Sen. George Allen on Thursday released excerpts from some of the war novels Webb wrote between 1978 and 2002. The books include some graphic sexual passages, as well as frequent uses of a racial slur for blacks and descriptions of Vietnamese women as "monkey-faced."

Among the excerpts is a scene from the 2002 novel "Lost Soldiers," in which a man embraces his four-year-old son and places the boy's penis in his mouth.

...

"It's not a sexual act," Webb told Plotkin regarding the "Lost Soldiers" excerpt. "I actually saw this happen in a slum in Bangkok when I was there as a journalist."

"The duty of a writer is to illuminate his surroundings," he added.

Coincidentally, a Cambodian woman in Las Vegas is facing sexual assault charges for performing a similar act on her young son, according to an Oct. 14 report in the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

The article quotes an office manager for the Cambodian Association of America, who described the act as a sign of respect or love.

Hey, I'm convinced. But try telling that to my wife.

"It's an exception," Thira Srey told the Review-Journal of the practice. According to the report, the act is usually performed by a mother or caretaker on a child who is one year old or younger. In Webb's novel, the child is four years old.

Now Cambodia -- that's your "horny woman's dream" right there.

No word yet on the bananas.

I don't think this is the biggest scandal in the world, but I don't get the harumphing offered by Michelle Malkin and other bloggers she quotes. Give me a break. This race has been nothing but "Grand Wizard Felix Macaca" for months, the media and Democrats (but I repeat myself) are seeing anti-miscegenation messages and hearing "jungle drums" everyfuckingwhere and beat the dead Foley horse so hard it actually got up and began training for the Preakness, and some conservatives think we should only talk high-mindedly about policy?

Macaca please.
