A Rational Theory of Extramarital Sex in the Political Class

- July 3, 2009

Yesterday, John posted a theory of sex among the political class. Very timely, one might think, in light of all the shenanigans that have been reported lately. Well, not to toot my own horn or anything, but I beat him to it by more than a decade.

And now (ultimate outrage), Henry posts an implicit challenge to my capacity for completing “unusual,” shall we say, research projects. Well, some of his are doozies, and we can all be grateful to him for alerting us to their existence. But I wonder whether they’re more outrageous than what I’m about to drop on you.

So to kill two birds with one stone, I hereby post this piece, which was done in the warm afterglow of Monicagate. Eat your heart out, Henry; and get a new idea, John. (This, like the piece I posted the other day in response to another of John’s provocations, will appear in The Wit and Humor of Political Science.
