Sen. Lieberman’s Sexy Sabbath

We now unfortunately know that Sen. Joseph Lieberman (I-Conn.) is bringing sexy back. And how we wish we could go back in time, cover our ears, shield our eyes and douse ourselves in holy water to spiritually protect ourselves from the scarring news.

Not all reporters treated the news equally.

Late last week Political Wire‘s Taegan Goddard spiced things up on his blog on Friday by reporting that Sen. Joe Lieberman, an Orthodox Jew, uses the Sabbath, in part, to make whoopee with Hadassa. Eeks. Did we have to have that visual? Politico CLICK’s Karin Tanabe, meanwhile, apparently had a spice allergy. She wrote a lengthy post on Lieberman’s new tome, The Gift of Rest: Rediscovering the Beauty of the Sabbath,  and reported at the odd hour of 4 a.m. Thursday that Lieberman sees the logistical value of being able to have sex with your spouse during the Sabbath. She holds out on the topic until paragraph 14.

WaPo‘s piece by Justin Moyer on Friday, meanwhile, sexes up the review by mentioning getting busy in the first graph, the second graph and the third graph. Total number of graphs in the story: 3.
