While few pundits have taken porn-goddess "Mary Carey" Cook's run for governor of California seriously, some still aren't sure if she's serious or if it's one brilliantly planned publicity stunt. In any case, Carey makes one thing perfectly clear - she has a bone to pick with how Gov. Gray Davis has run the state.
"I don't think Davis has done a good job and we need someone who is new to come in - someone with fresh ideas. Prices are high everywhere, unemployment is high..."
And don't forget that California's exorbitantly large deficit is much, much larger than Carey's massive 36DD boobs, although, there are probably more men interested in her boobs than the size of California's budget deficit.
Carey's opposition to how Davis has run the state and to his policies are why she is running, she told me last week during an interview. Carey is bubbly, without a doubt, but in explaining what she would do to solve California's problems, she seemed highly intelligent, although her ideas were definitely unique and probably a little bit out of most people's "boxes", even when thinking outside the box.
One of her ideas is to wire the governor's mansion with web cams, charging people $19.95 a month to see what really goes on inside the governor's mansion. Carey says she thinks Californians should have full disclosure of what goes on in the governor's mansion and that she has nothing to hide.
"The web cams will allow people to see their government at work."
It would certainly be interesting to see California's government at work with her as head of state.
She said the money from the program could go toward increasing California school funding, which she says is in dire need of being increased.
Carey, who said she wants to be the "female Bill Clinton" may get her wish if name recognition plays an important role in this election. She's appeared on everything from the E! Entertainment Network to Fox's O'Reilly Factor so far, and I have a feeling that her TV and other media appearances will continue throughout the campaign. She said people were even calling her from Australia for interviews.
Her appearances are certainly bringing porn more into the mainstream. She said she does want porn to become more mainstream in the future, but she is passionate about wanting to make sure that children do not see it.
Some of her issue positions are more widely known than others. Her proposal to tax breast implants is one of these issues. She says it's a great replacement for the widely unpopular car tax.
