I’m told Kim Kardashian is planning on running for mayor of Glendale
You don’t have to pack up and move just yet; she doesn’t plan to actually become mayor for five years. Put down the suitcases, honey, we’re safe for now.
The Los Angeles Times
explains that Kim couldn’t really do much damage – mayors in Glendale aren’t elected, per se, by the people, but rather elevated by their peers. She’d have to serve on the city council first, and I don’t see Kimmy as being all that good at dealing with committees.
Much as I’d love to give Kim the benefit of the doubt and assume she was just joking around for the TV cameras, she’s pulled enough wacky crap (I won’t mention her marriage, I promise…oops) for me to think she might be serious. Besides, “Kim Kardashian Jokes About Politics” makes for a short article.
Hence I’ve been sitting here since the news broke, trying to figure out what the hell Kim Kardashian thinks she can offer Glendale, or any other place for that matter.
I have watched exactly one episode of her show. It was a trainwreck. Oh look, unbelievably wealthy people living it up in New York whining about…I can’t even remember what the problem du jour
was, I think it was her sister Kourtney’s boyfriend not being able to play the hideously expensive piano he impulsively purchased.
Despite not watching her show, I can’t go a day without hearing about Kim. She’s in all of my style magazines – fair enough, she’s quite beautiful – and every freaking day there’s something new about her on the news, on the gossip sites, even on the good
sites that supposedly don’t cover the Kardashians. I can’t get away from her, and she’s not even doing
I guess what really irks me is that she thinks she has any political clout at all. What the hell is she going to offer any city? Yes, she will look fabulous. She will probably single-handedly make her city more photogenic. She strikes me as a very nice gal – I don’t know how smart she is, but she means well. You know what? Arnold Schwarzenegger meant well, too.
See, this is California. We’ve already set a precedent for electing mystifying people into high offices. We put the freaking Terminator in charge of our state, for chrissake. Can Mayor Kardashian really be far behind?
With that said, I’m eager to see how her mayoral wardrobe turns out.
