The news has been buzzing today about the speculation that porn starlet Stormy Daniels may decide to take a run at the Louisiana US Senate seat currently held by Diaper David Vitter (the one who got busted being on the client list of DC Madam Deborah Palfrey).
Being a Louisiana native and resident as well as being a sexual and social progressive, I'm routing for her to succeed, or at least dust Vitter enough so that he gets booted in the general election.
But...the notion that an actual porn starlet could even have the slightest chance of occupying one of the highest political seats in the land does have its merits and opportunities.
The closest we have come has been Mary Carey's abortive run for the governorship of California, which was more of a publicity stunt than anything else and really didn't have much of a chance.
Daniels' run, however, has strong backing from the grassroots, and in recent interviews given, Stormy has hinted that she is deadly serious about going after Vitter, especially for his sexual hypocrisy.
This could get...well, interesting, to say the least.
Note: I've posted a much more in depth introspective on Stormy Daniels over at the SmackChron.
