One thing I love about the online world is the tendency to run across information that is just plain freakish. You know certain items will always get coverage, like former porn stars running for public office. Be forewarned, there's some bizarre reading ahead if you follow the links.
This whole strange journey started with Wonkette, who has given an enthusiastic endorsement of Melody "Mimi Miyagi" Damayo for governor of Nevada. Yes, Melody Damayo, formerly known as adult film star Mimi Miyagi, is running for governor of Nevada. AS A REPUBLICAN. In addition to her starring roles in such films as "Seoul Train," "Screaming Mimi" and "Asian Invasions" she's also an entrepreneur in the best GOP tradition, publishing such multicultural awareness magazines as "Oriental Dolls" and "Asian Hotties."
I don't know if it's the radioactive waste, or the 24-hour availability of cocktails and gambling, or what, but Nevada has some interesting candidates this year. Like Leola McConnell, liberal Democratic candidate for governor. Leola McConnell identifies herself as a former dominatrix, and claims that from 1998 until 2003 she was William "Book of Virtues" Bennett's personal domina. Looks like she tried to get Virtue Czar Bill to get counselling for his gambling addiction, but to no avail. He evidently thought it wasn't anything a good spanking couldn't take care of.
On June 4, 2006, McConnell issued a press release and made this shocking claim: In 1984 I watched George W. Bush enthusiastically and expertly perform a homosexual act on another man, one Victor Ashe. YOW!!!!
This made me think of Jeff Gannon/James Guckert. Remember him? He was an ex-prostitute and right wing "journalist" who managed to get into White House press briefings using fake credentials so he could lob softball questions to Scott McClellan or the POTUS. The MSM totally dropped the ball on this one; can you imagine the outrage had a gay hooker/fake journalist been discovered making multiple visits to the Clinton White House? On days where there were no briefings scheduled? With Secret Service logs showing that he checked in and didn't check out, or vice-versa, indicating that the gay hooker/fake journalist could have spent the night at the White House?!?!
The mind reels.
