Why Is This A Joke?
So a porn star is challenging David Vitter for his seat in the Senate. As you’ll see it this segment, apparently, we’re all supposed to understand that this is a joke.
I don’t get it.
I’d like the news media to explain why she’s not a “serious” candidate.
I’m all ears. Really. Does she have no policy chops? Does she lack formal education? Is she just dumb? Does she not actually want to run?
I’m all ears. Really. Obviously, there is political theater value to having a sex worker challenge Vitter, who patronized sex workers (notably the service run by Deborah Jeane Palfrey, who is dead under circumstances that make even the most trusting folks turn conspiracy theorist.) So I’m fine with the idea that she’s not a serious candidate, if there’s one good reason to believe she is not qualified. There may be many. But I didn’t hear any of them.
The media thinks they can say she does sex work and we’ll all infer that reason. I won’t. I’d like them to answer the damned question. Is she qualified, and if not, why not?
