Bob Dole's new crusade against sex and violence in Hollywoodis broad-minded enough to include the work of fellow Republican Newt Gingrich, whoseupcoming novelincludes a highly-suggestive passage about a "pouting sex kitten." On NBC's "Meet the Press" Sunday, moderator Tim Russert sprung a reading of the House Speaker's book on the presidential aspirant: "Suddenly the pouting sex kitten gave way to Diana the huntress. She rolled onto him, sitting athwart his chest, her knees pinning his shoulders. 'Tell me, or I'll make you do terrible things."' Asked about the language, Dole said: "It's troubling to me. Maybe it's not troubling to Newt Gingrich." Today, White House spokesman Mike McCurry couldn't help himself. "I want that book," he said. "It sounds exactly like the kind of steamy novel you want to curl up with by the pool."
