Dana Gioia's D.C. Tryst: A Photo Essay

In January of 2003, Dana Gioia was made chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts...

He took what many regarded as an unorthodox attitude toward his job...

"Fuck this literature shit, got me?"

Everything was going fine, but then the rumour got out that Dana liked older women... much older women.

So Lynn "Dick Did Not" Cheney invited him to D.C. for some fun and games. Gioia was surprised when Lynn fondled him right behind her nearly comatose Uncle Larry. The aroused Gioia responded with an impish grin.

But their affair didn't last. The wives of vice-presidents can't very well leave their husbands while in office, can they? A heartbroken Gioia later mailed Lynn this sketch done by a street artist on their first tryst in Paris. She keeps it stashed beneath her undies in a bedroom drawer to this day.

Ah man, you really had me going--I believed you right up to the point about Lynn Cheney's undies. Dude, everyone knows she don't wear any...

Not a great poet, but his criticism amuses me in the way it called all the avante-garde bullshit artists out on the talentless, humorless, dry-humping airbags that they are.

snark? this seems like pure Patriotism to me. our Glorious Co-Leader's Ladyperson gamely "supporting" the "arts," the eternal Self-Love of grants, endowments, and the Properly might say, "Heckuva job, Gioia..."

well written truthiness.
