Maybe the Gooch Was Right, Porn Is Getting More Interesting

A 29 year-old porn star named Stormy Daniels is thinking about running for U.S. senate in Louisiana, in a campagin to unseat Louisiana Republican Sen. David Vitter, who you may recall, had a hooker problem.

According to the Tampa Tribune—Daniels says she lives in Tampa, Baton Rouge, and Hollywood—her fans have built a Draft Stormy for Senate Web site that says she has “honesty, passion and strength of character. These are the traits Louisiana needs in a senator at this crucial time. And honesty, passion and strength are what this Storm is all about.”



Daniels touts herself as “a champion of entrepreneurism, a fighter for decency and the embodiment of pure libertarianism…a tireless champion for the forthright values of common sense and do-it-yourself individualism.”  And in an interview with CNN, Daniels quipped, “Politics can’t be any dirtier of a job than the one I am already in.”


Maybe this is the first sign that porn is really cleaning up its act. Here’s Big Think media expert, Bob Guccione, Jr. on the future of pornography.
