The perks (pricks) of higher office

"You wouldn't be doing any of this if one of the objectives was not to increase the amount of pussy that was available to you. That is what you do," Hitch says. "You don't do it to be, ah, the most approval-rated governor of New York, for fuck's sake."

I suddenly find myself in the awkward position of agreeing with Christopher Hitchens. It's hard (pun intended) not to this time. I once heard a poet (I think it was Leonard Cohen but don't quote me on this, it might have been Irving Layton) who, when asked what inspired his poetry, answered getting laid (I may be paraphrasing here.)
