"Manhattan Madam" Takes Status Demotion, Seeks to go From Whorehouse to Statehouse


Kristin Davis, the "Manhattan Madam" who helped bring down the rein of terror and awfulness that was Eliot Spitzer's stay in Albany simply by providing him with prostitutes, is running for governor of New York on a "personal freedom" ticket that includes legalizing pot and prostitution (or P2). Reports the Daily News ("the eyes, the ears, the honest voice of New York"):

"I am the only candidate who is not part of the corrupt and dysfunctional system of New York State politics," the buxom blond declared in announcing her independent bid.

And she has the fix for the state's gaping budget hole: legalizing and taxing—you guessed it—prostitution, as well as marijuana.

More here. More power to her, and the people of New York, who are suffering through the worst one-two punch of governors since, I don't know, Pataki and Cuomo.

Here's some video on her honor's announcement. And here's her own site, well worth a visit.

  1. I’d vote for her long, long before I’d ever vote for Spitzer.

    1. I thought you were going to say “hair”.

  2. Excuse me, “spitzer”. He’s lost his capitalization privileges.

  3. And she has the fix for the state’s gaping budget hole.

  4. I would vote for her. Could she do any worse? If she was an honest person and tried to do something besides steal she would be an improvement over Pataki, Spitzer and Paterson.

    1. I’d vote for this Kristin Davis:


      1. I would do more than vote for her. I think Davis is the actual gorgeous girl next door brunette that people claim Tina Fey is. Davis is just spectacular.

        1. I thought Tina Fey was supposed to be that cute, brainy girl in your Biology class, not the girl next door.

          1. Tina Fey is neither cute, brainy, nor funny. She deserves bone cancer.

            1. I thought she was cute and funny. Thanks for straightening me out on that.

              1. You’re welcome. Now die of bone cancer.

  5. I would cast my ballot for her were I (Odin forbid) a New York resident. As far as I know, she never lied to, nor cheated her customers. I doubt any of the politicians seeking the office could honestly make that claim.

    1. J sub D, “As far as I know, she never lied”: Baby, they all say “I love you” “You’re the best”;-)

      1. Its a shame she felt the need to have so much surgery done.

        And I’d totally vote for her, if I was so unfortunate as to live in New York.

        And, oh yeah, thumbs up on Ms. Davis. The best-looking by miles of the Sex and the City girls.

      2. It’s always been the truth when they’re talking to me.

        1. 😀

  6. well at least we know she is a money grubbing whore, shes upfornt and honest about it, unlike most other politicians.

    1. At least she makes her own money instead of grubbing it from the taxpayers.

  7. I’d put my vote in her ballot box.

    1. At least you wouldn’t stuff the box.

      1. I wonder if they have any hanging Chads* in her box?

        Sorry Chad, I think you’re great!

  8. Well, if I’m going to be screwed by government…

    1. CharlesWT, the only time libertarians will not claim lining up is a bad thing.;-)

      1. Anything would be better than the last couple of boobs that have been governor.

        With her “perform freedom” platform, would libertarians stand behind her?

        1. “would libertarians stand behind her?”
          Stand,sit,kneel and lie;-)

  9. I’m going to have to wait for the chromosome test.

    1. I’m giving her the benefit of the doubt and assuming its just that dress in that picture.

      1. In the immortal words of Admiral Akbar: “It’s a trap!”

        1. Coffee…it is now all over my screen.


    2. I call bull.

      1. wait P Brooks, I’m not sure the bull would be safe either.

    3. I had the same initial thought. Don’t want any Eddie Murphy surprises…

      1. that he wasn’t that surprised. ClubMedSux, you could use that excuse too!

  10. I… think that maybe she isn’t really blond.

  11. Rein, reign…what’s the difference.

  12. It’s notable that she has a Libertarian-ish platform, but isn’t running as a Libertarian.

  13. She isn’t running as a Libertarian.

    So she’s not completely crazy; that’s worth something.

  14. Headline fail: You’re presuming there is a substantive difference between a prostitute and a politician.

    1. Yep.
      Prostitute doesn’t force her services on you.
      And doesn’t claim that she takes your money for your own good.

  15. prostitutes pay taxes on their tips.

  16. Looking at her somewhat puffy face she probably is either lacking a sufficient amount of protein in her diet or taking in too much of it.

  17. Shes a Van Gogh. From far away shes hot, but up close….

  18. 62% of respondents say they would vote for her. She’s off to a good start.

  19. Kristin Davis 2012! I cant wait for Davis – Palin debate!

  20. I’m guessing Governor Paterson didn’t see that coming.

    1. I’m guessing Governor Paterson didn’t see that cumming.

  21. 42 comments and nothing about “gaping (budget) hole”??! how can that be?

  22. never mind. there it is, early on. how could i have missed it?

    1. I have a guess

  23. I wonder if that poor woman ever went to a bank, and they asked her to remove her rubber mask. Well, that’s kind of stupid, because if they thought she was wearing a mask they would call security. Her face looks like a rubber mask, alright? Jesus.

  24. A couple of thoughts here:

    1) Why would I vote for another idiot who would do anything for money?
    2) Legalize pot — ten years later — “We need to do something about the huge lack of worker productivity in NY. I know! Let’s create a new huge bureaucracy that includes pot rehab. Also, let’s increase the police force. And for the really heavy-duty partakers, we’ll up welfare benefits!” …I can see it coming.

  25. truth,,,,obama people have no idea of the extent to which they have to be gulled in order to be led.”
    “The size of the lie is a definite factor in causing it to be believed, for the vast masses of the nation are in the depths of their hearts more easily deceived than they are consciously and intentionally bad. The primitive simplicity of their minds renders them a more easy prey to a big lie than a small one, for they themselves often tell little lies but would be ashamed to tell a big one.”
    “All propaganda must be so popular and on such an intellectual level, that even the most stupid of those towards whom it is directed will understand it. Therefore, the intellectual level of the propaganda must be lower the larger the number of people who are to be influenced by it.”
    “Through clever and constant application of propaganda, people can be made to see paradise as hell, and also the other way around, to consider the most wretched sort of life as paradise.”pelosi don’t see much future for the Americans … it’s a decayed country. And they have their racial problem, and the problem of social inequalities …obama feelings against Americanism are feelings of hatred and deep repugnance … everything about the behaviour of American society reveals that it’s half Judaised, and the other half negrified. How can one expect a State like that to hold TOGTHER.They include the angry left wing bloggers who spread vicious lies and half-truths about their political adversaries… Those lies are then repeated by the duplicitous left wing media outlets who “discuss” the nonsense on air as if it has merit? The media’s justification is apparently “because it’s out there”, truth be damned. STOP THIS COMMUNIST OBAMA ,GOD HELP US ALL .THE COMMANDER ((GOD OPEN YOUR EYES)) stop the communist obama & pelosi.((open you eyes)) ,the commander
