Bill Whalen: Politi-Cal

Just another weblog

California First Lady . . . Zsa Zsa Gabor?

What’s a California gubernatorial contest without a splash of celebrity – especially one with a German accent?

Earlier today, Prince Frederic von Anhalt, the eighth husband of actress Zsa Zsa Gabor, announced he’s running for the top job in Sacramento. But not as a Democrat or a Republican. He’ll give it a go as a Liberal Independent. His campaign slogan: “Return the Good Life to California”.

Yes, it’s the same Prince Frederic who claimed he had a decade-long affair with the late Anna Nicole Smith and might have been the father of her baby daughter. And the same “prince” whose royal credentials are, shall we say, a little suspect (according to British press accounts, he was born Robert Lichtenberg, the son of a German policeman, and bought his title after being adopted as an adult by a bankrupt daughter-in-law of the last German kaiser!)

Imagine that: a politician who lies . . .

So what would the prince (campaign website: do if he became King of California?

He says he wants to legalize marijuana and tax it . . .

As well as legalize prostitution . . .

Overturn Proposition 8 . . .

Open borders to Mexico for workers and tax them . . .

Promote natural gas and other alternative energies . . .

And (this might earn him my vote): lift the import ban on Cuban cigars (he might want to check with the White House on that one . . .).

“I’ve been in this country 26 years, and I’ve learned one thing: you have to be famous to win elections,” the Prince said in a recent interview. “If you’re not famous, but you’re filthy rich, forget about it. And fame is one thing I already have,” he proclaims. “I am able to talk to people differently. I won’t give them bull—-. And they will respect that.”

Sounds a little like Arnold Schwarzenegger ca. the 2003 recall, doesn’t it?
