A Wonkette operative has an idea:
"Maricopa is a half-empty town south of Phoenix. Most of the homes are either in foreclosure or heading in that direction. That’s why she could buy a 5 bedroom house for $172,000.
But guess what? Arizona will get a new, 9th Congressional District thanks to the new census. Most observers think Maricopa will end up smack-dab in the middle of this new district.
Bristol for Congress!"
Think I’m joking. I live in the 3rd Congressional District, represented by none other than Ben Quayle!"
Ben Quayle may be an apparent douchebag, but he holds degrees from Duke and Vanderbilt and was a successful attorney before running for Congress. Bristol "graduated" from high school in time to pose for the cover of People Magazine in her cap and gown.
