Former porn star Sasha Grey read to elementary school students recently. The seven-year-olds, who hopefully wouldn’t know the difference between a porn star and a pompom, were notably unaffected by her former occupation. Some parents, however, were upset. I for one feel just horrible for Sasha and have formed a men’s book club just so she can come read to us. Anybody have her e-mail?
Rick Perry could not seem to remember the third of three agencies he wants to shut down during a debate last week. When a colleague brought this up in conversation, he too stumbled on the three, at which point I quipped before I thought, “Legislative, Executive, and Judicial?” Hmmmmm…does this mean I am an anarchist deep down?
Herman Cain says God told him to run for President. Apparently, God failed to give him a primer on foreign policy, as he stumbled mightily when asked a question on Libya recently. God must also have a keen sense of humor, as he also appeared to Rick Perry’s wife with the same message. After last week, He must not have much faith in Perry himself to get it straight.
Michele Bachmann thinks we should be more like China, according to Jezebel and the Huffington Post. This after spending months (rightly) denouncing socialism. Is she really that confused? Well, maybe not compared to Cain and Perry.
Which brings us back to Sasha, whose response to the reading controversy was crystal clear:
“I committed to this program with the understanding that people would have their own opinions about what I have done, who I am and what I represent,” she said in a statement.
“I am an actor. I am an artist. I am a daughter. I am a sister. I am a partner. I have a past that some people may not agree with, but it does not define who I am.
“I believe in the future of our children, and I will remain an active supporter and participant in education-focused initiatives.”
Sasha for President?
