In summary: Her morals might be lax, but they are not wrong. Given that there are many people in politics with lax morals, her morals are not unique or wrong in any way.Her morals might be lax, but they are not wrong.

Well my state has its Governator and Minnesota has its Jesse "The Body Politique" Ventura.

Is her platform going to be about more transparency?
 
  • #4
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-english/2007/November/20071105201635ndyblehs0.4566614.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?

:smile: 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?

It's been done before, Italy elected a porn actress, Anna Elena Staller, to parliament a few years back.

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?

I humbly protest:

A lax vagina does not imply lax morals.

There are a good amount of porn stars that are Mensans.

Just sayin'.

Has anyone listened to speeches in the House lately? How bad could she be? Even if she has low reading/comprehension it won't matter...they just passed the biggest spending bill of all time and only an estimated 4% of them actually read the Bill.
 
  • #22
4% is more than I expected. All the dems had decided to support it and all the reps were going to oppose it. I'm surprised anyone other than the sponsors even read it. :eek:

I'm not sure that anyone is questioning her right to run for the office, only maybe her credentials.
the only practical way that her occupation has a bearing on this, in my eyes, is her ability to be taken seriously. I don't live in louisiana but I would have a hard time sending a porn star to capitol hill to represent me. I think I would have to know damn well that she has credentials and a bearing that would immediately blow any speculation on her apptitude out of the water. it doesn't matter how intelligent or moral I believe her to be. if no one in congress will take her seriously then she will be rather ineffective in her office.
 
  • #24
Again, NOBODY READ the largest spending bill in history...they don't take ANYTHING seriously.
 
  • #25
i don't know whether she's qualified to be a Senator, but she's certainly over-qualified to be an intern.

Hillary forgave him...let's move on.

Stormy Daniels not only stars in porn movies, but she writes them and directs them, as well. That has to count for something, right? How many current members of Congress could write a porn movie without totally botching the dialog? Can you imagine a porn movie written by John Kerry?

I wonder what a porn movie written by George Bush would be like.

Given that it's Louisiana, I'd have to wonder if she didn't represent an upgrade to the kinds of candidates that they have countenanced with public office in the past, from Huey Long to David Duke to this William Jefferson.

Even the yutz she's running against this David Vitter is apparently right out of the Jimmy Swaggart school of moral hypocrisy.

Ronald Reagan was an actor. So hey, why should having been a porn actress bother so many people, if she can deliver a speech and read a teleprompter like all her opponents?
