Sometimes you feel, when you hear a news story, that the world is giving gifts crafted especially for you. That's how I felt when I watched this segment on Rachel Maddow:
Kevin Franck, spokesman for the Louisiana Democratic Party, said neither the party nor the Melancon campaign recruited Daniels.
"If the Louisiana Republican Party is uncomfortable with a Republican challenger who has a history of selling sex, I would suggest they reconsider standing by an incumbent with a history of paying for it," Franck said in an e-mailed statement.
Let's hope that Stormy Daniels is effective in her run. I want to have the discussion of why it's okay for a Senator of Louisiana to pay a woman to have sex, but not for a woman who's been paid to have sex to be a Senator.
In honor of Stormy Daniels, I thought I'd play this song to kick off the Friday Genius Ten. Leave yours in comments and/or consider this an open thread.
