Sex Scandal as Electoral Enhancer: You Heard It Here First

Well, you heard it at Slate Star Codex first, I suppose, if you’re reading it.

The history of spies seducing people. Key quote: “When the KGB tried to blackmail Indonesian President Achmed Sukarno with videotapes of the president having sex with Russian women disguised as flight attendants, Sukarno wasn’t upset. He was pleased. He even asked for more copies of the video to show back in his country.

Emphasis mine. I predict we’ll have a couple of candidates for US statewide or national office showing off their sex scandal vids (“gotta come clean ahead of the story”, you see), or at least saying their public apologies with big-ass grins on their faces, within the next couple of election cycles.

I know very little about Sukarno, but he gets a big thumbs up in my book for this one.
