Another Celebrity Imbecile Running for Congress

Posted by on Feb 05, 2014 at 9:42 am

No, not Sandra Fluke, who apparently got a reality check from her fellow Democrats. Instead some guy most famous for being an American Idol runner-up. These Democrats sure have a deep bench, huh?

Former “American Idol” runner-up Clay Aiken is running for Congress in North Carolina.

Aiken said Wednesday he’ll seek the Democratic nomination for the seat currently held by Rep. Renee Ellmers.

The 35-year-old Aiken is expected to face former state commerce secretary Keith Crisco of Asheboro and licensed professional counselor Toni Morris of Fayetteville in the Democratic primary.

Aiken has been a special education teacher in Wake County. He says he decided to put his entertainment career on hold and seek to represent the state’s 2nd Congressional District.

He says he considers Washington to be dysfunctional and will focus on jobs and the economy and the importance of education.

What entertainment career? Meanwhile, this wealthy Democrat plans to be a voice for the powerless.

He lives in a $2 million home he had built in a rural corner of the 2nd Congressional District near the Wake, Durham and Chatham county lines.

Certainly this will be an uphill battle in North Carolina, where Democrats face a bloodbath this year.

But it has already become an issue in the election. Ellmers’ campaign staff on Tuesday sized up the potential Democratic field this way:

“It speaks volumes to the state of the N.C. Democratic Party that the primary is shaping up to be a choice between the failed Perdue Administration’s Keith Crisco, a lawyer who doesn’t even live in the district, an activist who’s own party rejected her in the last democrat primary – and Aiken, a performer whose political views more closely resemble those of San Francisco than Sanford,” spokeswoman Jessica Wood wrote in an email. “Renee best represents the values of the voters in the 2nd District and remains focused on fighting for their families.”

    The real question is; IF Elected , will this put future Monica Lewinski’s out of work thus causing additional problems in the job market in addition to maybe Biden or someone looking down and thinking he has a porcupine in his lap?

    I can here it now….

    Hi. I’m Clay Aiken. You may remember me finishing 2nd on American Idol. Well, I’ve been in television. I’ve been on broadway. Now, I want to be your senator.

    I bring nothing to the table but an ability to adopt a child while getting pounded in the ass, but I feel that everyone in America is gay and it’s time our voice is heard.

    Who’s with me?!?
