Porn star to make Senate run in Louisiana? (tmi3rd)

Move over, Minnesota, we've got our own ridiculous candidate to run. Stormy Daniels is a Baton Rouge native who is mulling a run for David Vitter's Senate seat (don't worry, the link is only to her Wikipedia page, that someone has lovingly updated to reflect her political ambitions).

Politico reports that she will begin a listening tour across Louisiana beginning tomorrow.

I've made some phone calls to folks in the know, and the response has largely been that of yawning... nobody really knows who's underwriting this campaign. The most logical supposition is that Larry Flynt has a hand in it (he was the one who took down Bob Livingston in 1998 when he was up for speaker of the House), and Vitter has had his own infidelity problems. I'll post some links in the comment thread to point people around to more information.

Nobody in Louisiana had picked up on this as of midnight Central Time, but my former colleagues in New Orleans and in Lake Charles were going to start digging on it tomorrow. Daniels has not announced any party affiliation, but she's the only person with any sort of profile that has announced even thinking about a challenge to Vitter.

I can't bring teh funnay anywhere near as well as the rest of the moron crew, so fire away! And before I forget, thanks to Drew M. for the tip.
