Levi Johnston for Mayor of Wasilla? Apparently. . .

According to Variety, Levi Johnston -- ex-fiance of Bristol Palin -- will run for mayor of Wasilla, Alaska. Johnston will reportedly use an appearance in a reality show to launch his mayoral campaign:
Levi Johnston is setting his sights on the dysfunctional family business.

Johnston will run for mayor of Wasilla, Alaska -- yes, the same job that propelled Sarah Palin to governor of that state (and later, the vice presidential nomination) -- in a new reality project being pitched by Stone and Co.

"Loving Levi: The Road to the Mayor's Office" will center on Johnston's newfound fame as the baby daddy to Palin's grandson, Tripp.

Johnston will trade on that notoriety to make his run for Wasilla City Hall -- when he's not pursuing a career in Hollywood, of course.
So does Johnston have a chance of winning the position? Well, stranger things have happened -- like John McCain picking Sarah Palin as a running mate. So, stay tuned!

That wouldn't be as strange as a local unknown politician becoming President of the USA within a span of say 4 years with no real accomplishments (legislative or otherwise) and the Presidential race being the first contested election he had ever won. Just sayin'

Yeah, right. I was a main critic of Obama's candidacy -- thinking that Clinton would have been better and that she had more experience. But comparing Johnston and Obama is a bit too much.

Well the interesting thing is that Clinton had never won a contested election either! Still hasn't. I would say it is certainly fair to say that Johnston to Obama is similar in proportion as Mayor of Wasilla is to POTU.

Hmmm...I guess if you can fog a mirror with your breath - apparently something easy to do in Alaska - you can run for political office these days...God help us all.

I'll bet the job ad for mayor starts with "Heavy breather wanted to run for office of Mayor, breath mints not required ..."

Matt: Clinton was second-term Senator. Uncontested? I think not. Her Republican challengers were about as capable as Palin.

FLRN: I think you are on to something. If the job paid well, I think we could go up there are shake up things. :)

I'll bring a makeup compact and the mouthwash - a new job for us why not - looks like anybody can do it these days!
