A new book is out that purports to blow the lid off of the true conservative Republican lifestyle — a lifestyle of casual sex and “a seemingly endless supply of narcotics.”
The book is called “Life of the Party: A Political Press Tart Bares All.” It was written by Lisa Baron, who was a political press officer for several GOP figures during the Bush era.
(A 2009 report from Politico said Baron was shopping the book around with the title “My Burning Bush.”)
The book opens with a description of an “intimate encounter” between Baron and former White House press secretary Ari Fleischer in a hotel room during the 2000 South Carolina presidential primary.
Baron said Fleischer never returned her phone calls afterwards, but they awkwardly ran into each other several times during the ensuing campaign. She wrote:
Note to self: If you’re going to sleep around, sleep around with Democrats.
According to the Vanity Fair podcast, the “intimate encounter” with the married Fleischer involved what used to be called a “Lewinsky.”
