A porn star runs for office, and Facebook frees an innocent man


Two very odd, but very revealing of our times stories for you today.

First, let me introduce you to Miss Stormy Daniels, the next senator from the great state of Tennesee.

Yes, in the grand tradition of Mary Carey, the adult entertainment star who ran for governor of California, the great Stormy Daniels is running for Senate.

Against, of course, Republican David Vitter, who of course you’ll remember, was involved in a prostitution scandal some time ago.

Miss Daniels, according to an interview with Marie Claire magazine (that noted political rag), said she thinks her past, including starring roles in the Oscar-nominated “Space Nuts” and “American Girls Part 2,” will actually help her as a politician.

“A sex tape of me isn’t going to pop up and shame me; there are 150 of them at the video store.”

When Stormy is right, Stormy is right. I encourage all Republicans in the Louisiana to vote for the Stormy one in the primary next year. After all, who knows better than she how to entertain a bunch of horny, lonely men, and isn’t that mostly what the U.S. Senate is, anyway?

**I always knew Facebook had the power to do good. Besides making people like my wife obsessed with imaginary farms, and reminding me that it’s someone’s birthday, Facebook got a man out of legal trouble this week.

If you didn’t hear, a 19-year-old New York kid named Rodney Bradford was arrested on robbery charges and held in jail for 12 days recently. He said he was innocent, then proved it by producing a Facebook message he wrote to his girlfriend a minute before the robbery. The cops verified it, and released young Mr. Bradford to return to his Facebooking ways, poking people and becoming a fan of things like “Running fast with your eyes closed.”

God bless America.
