Porn star Stormy Daniels, the “pro-condom” potential U.S. Senate candidate currently on a listening tour across Louisiana, says she’d love to sit down and pick the brain of former Alaska Gov. and Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin before launching a campaign. From Politico:
As a woman who is often criticized and dismissed by the media, I obviously can relate to Governor Palin on many levels,” Daniels said in a statement. “Given this, I am very interested to hear what she has to say about the challenges women like ourselves who are not afraid to display our sexuality face when it comes to being taken seriously as leaders.”
Stormy, who plans to make an official decision regarding her campaign at the end of the summer, added that she hopes to get a meeting set up with Palin sometime in August.
“Only through the exercise of personal responsibility can we prevent government from impinging on our rights and intruding in our lives,” Daniels said. “I am looking forward to taking the opportunity to discuss with Governor Palin --as one strong woman to another -- how we can best restore responsibility to our families and to our nation.
Suprisingly, no word yet on the meeting from Palin’s camp.
