It wasn't exactly “What’s good for General Motors is good for the country,” but porn star Jenna Jameson has put her spin on the presidential race: "I'm very looking forward to a Republican being back in office. When you're rich, you want a Republican in office."
All together now, you Occupy folks: “We told you so!”
Jameson’s “let them eat cake” moment came Thursday in San Francisco while she was “sipping champagne in a VIP room at Gold Club in the city's South of Market neighborhood,” according to CBS San Francisco. It added that she “made the comments exclusively to a CBS SF staffer who was attending an event marking the 8th anniversary of the gentlemen's club.”
(You have to wonder just how that assignment got handed out. When I was a young reporter, I got to go to the hall of records every day to review bankruptcy filings and new-business applications.)
Now, some of you may not be familiar with Jameson. So I did some research, and found this on Wikipedia (so you know it’s accurate): “Jenna Jameson (born Jenna Marie Massoli; April 9, 1974 is an American entrepreneur and former pornographic actress, who has been called the world's most famous adult-entertainment performer and ‘The Queen of Porn.’ ”
Oh, and she’s written a New York Times bestseller. Proving that you should write what you know, the autobiography is titled “How to Make Love Like a Porn Star: A Cautionary Tale.” Full disclosure: I haven’t read it. But I am intrigued by the “A Cautionary Tale” angle.
(I tried to do some more research, but my computer seems to have acquired several bad viruses, and my boss just called to ask about some rather large credit card charges. I didn’t even ask if I could go to a gentlemen’s club in San Francisco myself.)
Anyway, I’m giving Jameson props for being plainspoken. Millions of words have been written on the presidential race, but she stripped away the rhetoric. And she didn’t even have to get down and dirty, unlike some other Republicans and their expensive “super PACS.”
Now, Jameson’s backing may not guarantee victory for Mitt Romney.
But I’ll bet she could spice up his campaign ads.
