USA Today Covers Nall Campaign!!

USA Today Elections Blog

Vote Nall, y'all -- she's smokin'...

Although she is running as Alabama's Libertarian write-in candidate for governor, Loretta Nall says she gets more coverage for her role as President of the United States Marijuana Party .

“The media always expects me to come in smoking this big joint and looking like Cheech and Chong,” says Nall, who admits to recreational marijuana use. But she says voters who familiarize themselves with her other platforms, which include calls for tax cuts and education reform, take her seriously.

An Alabama native with a thick drawl, Nall says the marijuana party has grown to include 35 state chapters since she started it in 2002. In 2004, she says she was named a drug policy adviser for Dennis Kucinich's presidential campaign.

Nall says she regrets the “sad reality of Alabama politics” that requires candidates like Republican Gov. Bob Riley and Democratic Lt. Gov. Lucy Baxley to “out-Jesus” one another. Religion, says Nall, is a “private, family matter.” But in the land of Roy Moore, Alabama’s infamous "Ten Commandments Judge," Christianity is campaign currency.

Undeterred, her campaign t-shirt features a picture of the buxom candidate next to the phrase "More of these boobs." Below, wrapped around smaller images of Riley, Baxley, Moore and former governor Don Siegelman is the phrase “and less of these boobs!"

For all of you wondering about the shirt and how that design came about, please read this and this and finally this.

I'm sorry, Loretta. You make WAY too much sense to get elected...

It's a sad comment on politics and modern life. Posturing gets you elected; talking common sense does not. And for the privelage of posturing, you gotta "grease" a LOT of interests along the way - very "special" interests, very "special" grease.

I don't make the rules, I only call 'em as I see 'em....

I wish you good luck, however, and hope this effort gets you SOMEWHERE you want to be....
