It's a little early in the morning for this–indeed it may always be a little too early in the morning for this, even if the Doomsday Nuclear Clock is 10 seconds away from chiming–but Drudge reports breathlessly (is there any other way?):

PLAYGIRL EDITOR-IN-CHIEF OUTS HERSELF—AS REPUBLICAN
Mon Mar 07 2005 19:42:14 ET

When it comes to sex and politics, Democrats are the more liberal, right? Not so fast. Playgirl editor-in-chief Michele Zipp explores "down and dirty" politics and examines sexuality on both sides of the aisle. In the process she comes to a realization about herself and reveals for the first time she's now a Republican….

How could a member of the media who produces adult entertainment for women possibly side with conservatives from the red states? Zipp spells it out [in the April issue]. "Those on the right are presumed to be all about power and greed–two really sexy traits in the bedroom. They want it, they want it now, and they'll do anything to get it. And I'm not talking about some pansy-assed victory, I'm talking about full on jackpot, satisfaction for all."

"The Democrats of the Sixties were all about making love and not war while a war-loving Republican is a man who would fight, bleed, sacrifice, and die for his country. Could you imagine what that very same man would do for his wife in the bedroom?" asks Zipp….

Whole thing here.

Henry Kissinger once remarked that "power is the ultimate aphrodisiac," which might explain his deep affection for Pol Pot.

But I think it's an even money bet that politics is the ultimate saltpeter.

  1. “How could a member of the media who produces adult entertainment for women possibly side with conservatives from the red states?”

    Uh, yeah, “for women.” Drudge just gets a copy for his sister.

    “a war-loving Republican is a man who would fight, bleed, sacrifice, and die for his country. Could you imagine what that very same man would do for his wife in the bedroom?” Smack her in the head for not folding the sheets right?

  2. “Could you imagine what that very same man would do for his wife in the bedroom?”
    Have her recite the Pledge of Allegiance while he’s bangin’ her?

  3. You are, yes, suggesting new book ideas to me.

  4. Could you imagine what that very same man would do for his wife in the bedroom?

    Ummm…

    1. Ejaculate and fall asleep without giving her an orgasm?

    2. Yell at her until she cries because he’s too busy thinking about his hunting trip to perform?

    3. Blame “that fuckin’ traitor Kerry” for his erectile dysfunction?

    This article merely supports my theory that all conservatives are closet pre-verts.

  5. I find the potential politics of Playgirl to be interesting given that a large percentage of the readers are male.. or is that just an urban myth?

  6. Could you imagine what that very same man would do for his wife in the bedroom?

    4. Toss that tube of Astroglide, it’s Quaker State 10W40 or nuthin’

    5. Secretly replace Barry White CD with Sgt. Barry Sadler’s “Ballad of the Green Berets”

    This is fun, let’s keep the ball rolling.

  7. Yeah, female and red state…that overly summarizes the demographics of Playgirl. NOT.

  8. 6. Get deeply involved with her without having a clear exit strategy?

  9. Anyone who thinks that your politics dictates your sex life, well, they probably have the sex life they deserve.

  10. “Could you imagine what that very same man would do for his wife in the bedroom?”

    Put his johnson in a number of undisclosed locations?

  11. R C Dean: As a libertarian, I’ll gladly take that as a compliment!

  12. He’ll run an idea up his “flag pole” to see if she salutes it?

  13. Put his johnson in a number of undisclosed locations?

    Actually, that could be, “Hide Dick in a number of undisclosed locations” — or is that just too obvious? 🙂

  14. “adult entertainment for women”

    Playgirl? Bwahahahaha. Now that’s funny.

    “Could you imagine what that very same man would do for his wife in the bedroom?”
    Stack naked Arab men as a pyramid in the bedroom as she poses with a thumbs up sign and a smoke?

  15. Mo

    That was priceless!

    It’s a good thing I didn’t have a mouthful of coffee when I read that. 😮

  16. “Could you imagine what that very same man would do for his wife in the bedroom?”

    a) Conduct searches for WMD. Very thorough searches.

    b) Paint her finger purple and show her to the “polls”.

    c) Play “hide the RPG”

  17. mojoe,

    He might SAY he’s going to carry out a very thorough search, but you just know he’d go in half-heartedly, abort the searches early, and move on to the main armored thrust wayyyyyy before he’s got full buy-in from his coalition partner.

  18. As a former co-worker of Michele’s (the same parent company published a magazine I edited), I can attest she’s always had the arrogant self-regard and fondness for spike heels I associate with right-wing women. I just hope they teach her the secret handshake, for when Alberto Gonzales comes a-knockin’.
