porn and public office

by Violet Blue on October 30, 2008

I’m still going to tell you to “close your eyes and think of Tina Fey” (which some of us were already doing long before the talent portion of the debates). Though to keep us all on track before November, because some of us now actually confuse the Republican VP candidate with being a porn performer — it’s the other way around, dear readers — I’m pleased to point you to my pals at YesButNoButYes who have a handy new list of Ten Pornstars Who Ran for Public Office. One of them won. And, I’d totally forgotten about the non-sex film Linda Lovelace for President (bizarrely including Mickey Dolenz from The Monkees), which is timely to mention in the week that Deep Throat’s director Damiano keeled over. Lovelace, who starred in the famous film, made the sex act an FAQ in every single damn oral sex lecture I give, and then herself became one of those sad anti-porn pundits. But then again, if pornstars held office, do you think we’d have less or more sex scandals on our hands? I mean, considering dudes like Mahoney, sex work sure would be a lot more cost effective than settlements…
