Is her platform going to be about more transparency?

She knows how to screw the public for money.

She's as qualified as any congress person in that regard.

Being an actor or actress doesn't mean political success:

http://www.america.gov/st/washfile-e...0.4566614.html
But Shannon Jackson, chairwoman of the Department of Theater, Dance and Performance Studies at the University of California, Berkeley, told the New York Times that acting training does not guarantee political success.

“There’s the expectation that if you’re a performer, you’ll be good at any kind of performance, but that’s not true,” she said. “Certain performers are used to having scripts that they can practice and rehearse. They find challenges when they don’t have a script, or the required script changes and they have to improvise.”
I'm pretty sure actors and actresses in porn films aren't even required to memorize their scripts - they use cue cards.

Why shouldn't a porn actress be allowed to participate as a candidate?

Has she done anything criminal, or morally wrong in her life?

Talk about a loaded question!

Is it moral to be a paid slut? Depends on who you ask.

This is probably going to require some careful research.

It is not incompatible with morality, no.
Depends on who you ask.
Those who are deluded upon what constitutes morality might well say something different.

Moral
adjective: concerned with principles of right and wrong or conforming to standards of behavior and character based on those principles ("Moral sense")

So your notion of "moral" behavior is definitive, and anyone who disagrees is wrong. Got it.

Sounds like religion to me.

Relax mate and try to see the humour here. Not a single comment was made about the individual's ability/inability to be a leader or politician. Neither were any comments made about whether or not porn actresses (or actors for that matter) should or shouldn't participate in politics.

Every stereotype has an aspect or two that can be seen as humorous when encountered under certain conditions and this is such a situation. It isn't always necessary to play the intellectual with justified or objective views of everything encountered in life. Sometimes it's also fun simply to be human and to crack a smile at something purely because the opportunity exists.

If Paris Hilton can run for President, ... isn't she a role model for this Draft Stormy movement?

Given that Louisiana has elected such people as David Duke to public office, (ironically David Vitter succeeded Duke as a Louisiana state representative), I'd say Louisiana can and has done worse.

As long as they are unable to come up with some valid arguments for their position, yes indeed.
Got it.
Nope.

Speaking of Vitter and irony, anyone hear about Vitter's big objection to the stimulus bill?

Ans: It was about spending money on prevention of STDs!! =D

That would be because it promotes immoral behavior?

I wonder if his wife shares his view in this regard?

Moral absolutism does not require religion, but regardless, in this case, logic-based moral absolutism would tend to agree that her morals are somewhat lax.

...not that that's necessarily an unusual thing to find in politicians...

Could you outline the logic for those of us who haven't seen or thought of it yet?
