I was a surprised to see this news from CNN today. Fans of popular porn star Stormy Daniels are urging her to run for a US Senate seat by the 2010 elections. Stormy Daniels was quoted as to conduct a “listening tour” around Louisiana “to talk about a range of matters, including the economy — which along with women in business and protection of children are the three issues listed on her Web site.”
Only in the USA, eh? This is democracy in action. Anyone can choose to run for public office AND have a fighting chance to win. There is quite a stir, though, as to what the motive behind all this is. The current seated senator is Republican Sen. David Vitter, he was allegedly linked to to the “D.C. Madam,” the woman who ran a prostitution ring. So goes the theory that running a porn star against him on the next elections will remind the public of his alleged “doings”.
But anyway, back to Daniels… she continues to say “Politics can’t be any dirtier of a job than the one I am already in.”
Currently, her political aspirations may be a light diversion for Louisiana voters. And who wouldn’t find this as a popular community fodder? Lift your eyebrows for some juicy exchanges, for sure.
