Larry Flynt Rocks My World

Hustler Magazine publisher Larry Flynt rose to hero status during the Clinton/Lewinsky scandal when he placed an ad in the Washington Post offering up to $1 million to anyone who could prove they had an "illicit sexual relationship with a congressman."

Now he's charming me all over again with the announcement that he's running in the CA gubernatorial recall election. Don't get me wrong, I would much prefer the likes of Arianna Huffington. But I think Flynt has the potential to tap into something that she can't -- the unwashed masses. When asked about his potentially damaging image as the Prince of Porn, Flynt said, "California is the most progressive state in the union, I don't think anyone here will have a problem with a smut peddler as governor."

Now that's fun!

Schwarzenegger! Schwarzenegger!

Well... really all you need for eligibility is 65 signatures and 300 bucks, so maybe I could run.

Voluntine! Voluntine!

No. Smut's more fun.

hes run for president a few times, no?

during my advanced media studies class we read some really cool stuff about larry flynt and what made hustler such a ground-breaking magazine (the types of poses, articles, etc.)... he is definately a fascinating guy.

remember when we watched the movie about him and like the vcr at the tape or something? and i think that was one of our baileys irish creme and starbucks ice cream milkshake nights :)

Yeah, that was the best shit ever. I totally thought blockbuster was gonna hate us and then they just gave us a brand new tape.

Those milkshakes were quality.

PS- do you know who wrote those articles about Hustler? I would like to read them. If you still have them (which you probably do), maybe I can read them next time I come visit you.

I'm going to have to know what is in these milkshakes now. They sound yummy.

Italian Roast Starbucks ice cream and Bailey's Irish Cream. They are pretty much to die for. However, it's been a long time since I've seen the Italian Roast flavor in stores.. it might have been discontinued. Tragic, really.

two things:

1. i have the articles and i will look up the authors.

2. even if that italian roast stuff doesnt exist anymore, there is some mocha almond fudge flavor that is really too yummy to exist. i make milkshakes with it and kahlua :)
