Alabama candidate campaigns on cleavage
MONTGOMERY, Ala. – Loretta Nall, the Libertarian Party’s write-in candidate for governor of Alabama, is campaigning on her cleavage and hoping that voters will eventually focus on her platform.
Her campaign is offering T-shirts and marijuana stash boxes adorned with a photo of her with a plunging neckline and the words: “More of these boobs.” Below that are pictures of other candidates for governor – including Republican incumbent Bob Riley and Democratic Lt. Gov. Lucy Baxley – and the words: “And less of these boobs.”
Her Web site has a cartoon of someone stuffing bills down the front of her low-cut top. And for donation she apparently offers to show a cartoon of herself flashing her breasts.
Nall is calling for the withdrawal of the Alabama National Guard from Iraq, tax credits for sending children to private school and home schooling, opting out of the No Child Left Behind Act, legalizing marijuana, and not complying with the Patriot Act and the Real ID Act.
Despite the political handicaps, she knows how to get free attention.
Early in her campaign, she talked about how her misdemeanor arrest for marijuana possession in 2002 led her to start the U.S. Marijuana Party.
Then she entertained readers of her campaign Web site with lots of information about her personal life, including a discussion of why she doesn’t wear panties http://www.hartselleenquirer.com/articles/2006/11/02/opinion/oped3.txt
Campaign season taking a walk in the mud

With all the ugliness in so many of the campaigns, it seems appropriate to turn to a lighter subject.
Loretta Nall of Alex City, a Libertarian write in candidate for governor of Alabama, appeared on the nationally televised show, “Countdown with Keith Olbermann”, on MSNBC a few days ago, and forgive me, she surely won the “Booby Prize.”
Ms. Nall (how can I say it delicately?) is well endowed. In fact in one of my columns some months ago I made reference to the amount of cleavage she was showing in a photo than ran with my column. She picked up on my line and has run with it like you wouldn't believe.
She now has T-shirts which have pictures of the other gubernatorial candidates on them and with the message: “More of these boobs (over her photo) and less of these boobs (over photos of Riley, Baxley and Siegelman).”
By the way, in the TV interview, Ms. Nall described me as a “dirty old man” and thanked me for getting her the “horny man vote.” I can't deny I am old, but I shower every day.
She also said that if she loses the governor's race -- which she surely will -- she intends to run for the U. S. House in 2008 from the Third District, a seat currently held by Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Saks.
