A while back I mentioned Scooter Libby's novel. Libby is one of a number of political figures harboring literary pretentions--Newt Gingrich wrote a novel, as did G. Gordon Liddy, Barbara Boxer, Bill O'Reilly, and even Saddam Hussein. Libby actually got some good reviews, but the typical politician/pundit novel just ends up as something for people of the opposite political persuasion to chuckle over. I heard counterterrorism expert Richard Clarke on NPR the other day saying at least he got some good advice--don't include a sex scene.
Not to be outdone, Stephen Colbert has written Alpha Squad Seven: Lady Nocturne: A Tek Jansen Adventure! A sneak peek is here.
People like Colbert make me wish I had a TV.
