... But I think "pimp" is a generous description for you.
I don't know a thing about Chinese prostitutes (not having TV leaves one in ignorance when it comes to the really important things in the news, though The Hill is a good second best to, say, Fox). But I am convinced that buying and touting whole bawdyhouses full of sub-par politicians -- and to do so to the tune of $100 million -- is a good deal worse than engaging in prostitution. If the word "pimp" demeans you and doesn't make you feel important enough, I'm sure someone out here can find another.
