Official Wonkette Endorsement: Melody "Mimi Miyagi" Damayo
Forget the major labor unions, or the big conservative Christian groups. The official Wonkette endorsement is fast becoming the gold standard among stamps of approval. And this afternoon, we're pleased to bestow it upon Melody Damayo, the former adult film actress now running for governor of Nevada.
Neither of us is related to her (although she is Filipino-American, like one of us). Nor are we familiar with Damayo's cinematic oeuvre. But do we really need any more reason to endorse her? She's a fucking PORN STAR. Running for GOVERNOR OF NEVADA. As a REPUBLICAN. 'Nuff said.
Melody Damayo, who performed under the name Mimi Miyagi in movies such as "Seoul Train," appeared at the Sawyer Building downtown about 4:30 p.m. in a hot-pink pillbox hat, hot-pink high-heeled sandals and a very low-cut hot-pink suit. She was accompanied by an entourage she called her Campaign Cuties as well as two dark-suited bodyguards.
Damayo, who called herself the "former Asian Love Goddess," filed to run for governor as a Republican, saying one of her priorities would be anti-stalking legislation. She added that she hoped to address youth and gang violence "so they don't do it anymore."
WOW. We haven't seen a candidate this fantastic since Tom Malin ran for the Texas state legislature.
So, to all you Nevadans out there (all 12 of you): Vote Melody Damayo for Governor!!!
