Larry Flynt has placed ads in Texas asking, "Have you had a gay or straight sexual encounter with Governor Rick Perry? Can you provide documented evidence of illicit sexual or intimate relations with the governor? Larry Flynt and Hustler magazine will pay you up to $1 million if we choose to publish your verified story and use your material." But the ads were placed in The Onion and the Austin Chronicle. But why does Flynt think Onion readers would have sex with Rick Perry?
A politician's sex life really shouldn't matter unless he or she is engaging in illegal behavior or if his or her policies are homophobic when they're gay themselves but I'm not exactly mad at Larry. I would prefer it that corporate money and digging for dirt didn't taint our nation's politics the way they do but you might as well fight fire with fire rather than wait around to get burned.
