LP candidate: ìMore of these boobs, and less of these boobsî

Libertarian Party candidates are often a wacky bunch. There was Howard Stern, of course, and how about Montana’s Stan Jones? His skin turned blue after downing a homemade concoction he thought would protect him from a wave of disease that would be unleashed during post-Y2K antibiotics shortages. And now some good news for all the fellas who gripe about the lack of ladies in the movement:

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. “It started out as a joke, but it blew up into something huge,” said Nall, a 32-year-old with dyed blond hair. 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.”
