Disappointing news

The porn star will probably not be going to Congress.

Sen. David Vitter (R-LA) has no shortage of competitors in 2010. In addition to Democratic challenger, Rep. Charlie Melancon, he's always drawn improbable Republican primary challenger and porn star Stormy Daniels (and even a "conservative independent" third-party challenger you may not have heard of.).

But yesterday came word that he may be challenged in the Republican primary by retired Army Gen. Russel Honore, best known for leading the Army's deployment in Louisiana and the Gulf Coast in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

It's too bad really. It would've been fun to have a porn star as a representative. Kind of like Italy's Cicciolina. But there's just no way Honore can't win. Even if something really bad comes out about him, the people of Louisiana will vote for him. He identifies as African American Creole and the folks in Louisiana love their creoles. That and he rode in on a tank like he was the savior of New Orleans... which is how the people see him.

UPDATE: Excellent news: Honore said he's not running. The porn star is back in the race. I repeat: The porn star is back in the race!

Congress screws too many people already; no need to add porn stars.
