McAuliffe's Thighs of Pleasure

Read all about Tony Blair lookalike Terry McAuliffe's disturbing encounter with Yasser "Thighmaster" Arafat's wayward hands...

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Two years after President Bush's re-election victory, former Democratic honcho and Clinton pal Terry McAuliffe is airing his frustrations with John Kerry's campaign in a revealing and waggish memoir.

Unlike other political autobiographies that read like pollster-approved campaign material, McAuliffe doesn't pull his punches in writing about his rise from a scrappy Irish kid from Syracuse, N.Y., to chairman of the Democratic National Committee.

Some of his harshest criticism are aimed at the 2004 campaign that he was once responsible for defending. McAuliffe calls the Kerry campaign gun-shy, incompetent and distracted from the mission of defeating a more organized Bush campaign.

McAuliffe said the Massachusetts senator's presidential campaign was so afraid of offending swing voters that it didn't defend his record and backed away from criticizing Bush at critical turns.

[...]

The book is full of comical revelations from McAuliffe's years among the power elite - getting a startling leg rub from Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat at a dinner, watching movie stars Ben Affleck and Gwyneth Paltrow smooching during a showing of "Good Will Hunting" at Camp David and being chastised by former President George H.W. Bush during the 2000 election for treating his son with such "disgrace."
