The Daily WTF: Jenna Jameson Plans To Vote For A Man Who Thinks Porn Is Ruining Society (Or Does She?)

What with retired porn star Jenna Jameson‘s liberal social attitudes, belief in women’s rights and work with PETA, she might seem like an unlikely supporter of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney. But that’s exactly what she claimed to be at a San Francisco strip club last night.

“I’m very looking forward to a Republican being back in office,” she told CBS San Francisco ”while sipping champagne in a VIP room at Gold Club ” last night. “When you’re rich, you want a Republican in office.”

Whoa, Jenna Jameson! Are we to believe your personal desire to stay as obscenely rich as possible trumps your previously stated beliefs in non-violence, abortion rights, animal rights, and hell, freedom to produce and sell pornography? I guess it really is all about the money.

Or not. I’m sorry, but after reading Ms. Jameson describe herself as “very liberal,” and Hillary Clinton as potentially not liberal enough in thoughtful, intelligent interviews like this one, I refuse to believe she’s not messing with us here. And what actual Republican would state their reasons for being a Republican in terms so naked and honest? You’re supposed to couch your greed in terms like “pro business” and “individual responsibility,” not “Mitt Romney represents the interests of the upper classes, of which I am a member.” Not to mention, Mitt Romney wants to enforce America’s antiquated obscenity laws in a way they haven’t been enforced since the 1970s, which would effectively outlaw porn in many places, fucking with the very money Jenna says she’d like to keep. I call bullshit.

It certainly is headline grabbing, though. Look at all the blogs that have already sincerely reported it. If anything, I think Jenna Jameson is trying to do the opposite of what Sarah Silverman’s “Scissor A Billionaire For Obama” campaign is effectively doing: Rather than associate the candidate she likes with something widely judged to be an icky sex act (also: puppy molestation), she’s associating the candidate she dislikes with pornography, plastic surgery, and greed. Well played, Jenna Jameson. Well played.
