At several points in my life, all many years ago, I suddenly found myself a bachelor again for one reason or another. I tended to do foolish things. Thank God I never bought a convertible red Ferrari or something like that. But during one of my bachelorhood periods I dated a top high fashion model, a nice guy but... what a lifestyle! That was a disaster. And then I started going out with a marine just back from Iraq. I just realized I can't remember his name. He was my boyfriend for the better part of a year. I'm bad with name. I have great pictures of him but I can't use them here because he lives a straight lifestyle. In fact, everything about him was "straight"-- except one thing.
Look, I never talk about sex on this blog but do have one thing to say about it-- which is why I brought up that marine. He was a really strange guy. Terrible eating habits too-- all cheap fast food for every meal, for example. I once brought him to a neighborhood Italian restaurant and he told a friend who called that he was at a health food restaurant. Maybe that's because there were tables and chairs. But the strangest thing about him was that he always wanted Jenna Jameson DVDs playing while we were... well, you know. Every. Single. Time. Seven months. I had only ever seen one porn video in my life-- in 1966. I didn't especially like it and never watched one again-- until my Jenna Jameson phase. I didn't break up with the marine because of Jenna. I broke up with him because he had 20 girlfriends. It didn't bother me at all that he was married and living with his wife. I just felt it was too dangerous that he had so many girlfriends and that he wasn't all that fussy about health issues. I still have half a dozen Jenna Jameson DVDs in a pile somewhere; I've never watched them again. But I feel some kind of a bizarre connection to her. So, whenever she comes up in the news-- like when she was arrested for drunk driving or when Jim Cramer, being inducted into the Unsexiest Men in America hall of fame (along with Rush Limbaugh, George Bush, Eric Cantor, John Boehner and Kid Rock) was deemed "the Jenna Jameson of financial reporting: the more the economy took it in the rear, the louder his screams of ecstasy became"-- I feel compelled to write about her.
Her latest bout with fame, though, has nothing to do with taking it in the rear or DUIs. This week Jenna Jameson endorsed Mitt Romney.
"I'm very looking forward to a Republican being back in office," Jameson said while sipping champagne in a VIP room at Gold Club in the city's South of Market neighborhood. "When you're rich, you want a Republican in office."
Jameson made the comments exclusively to a CBS SF staffer who was attending an event marking the 8th anniversary of the gentlemen's club.
The Mitt Romney endorsement appears to be a departure from previous political leanings displayed by Jameson. The 38-year-old entrepreneur has previously appeared in People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals campaigns, and was a Hillary Clinton supporter in 2008, according to published reports.
In June the Senate approved the Vitter amendment, by a vote of 88 to 11. The Vitter amendment prohibits attendance at organized animal fights and imposes additional penalties for bringing a child to these bloody and illegal spectacles.
Congressman Steve King (R-IA) had this to say about Vitter during a tele-townhall last month, King stated ?It?s wrong to rate animals above human beings,? he told a questioner. King went on to argue ?there?s something wrong with society to make it a federal crime to watch animals fight, but it?s not a federal crime to induce somebody to watch people fighting there?s something wrong with the priorities of people that think like that.?
King went on to state, ?Animals have more rights than fetuses,? and suggests that ?liberals have so devalued life, that a man can rape a young girl, kidnap her, force her to undergo an abortion across state lines, and then drop her off at the swing set and that?s not against the law in the United States of America.?
