Has this forum come to a consensus as to whether Tucker is friend or foe? This segment makes me think the latter.

It was great!

Tucker ended the interview by saying "I think Ron Paul is going to be the folk hero of this election"!

Hopefully folk hero=victor.

Tucker is DEFINITELY a Ron Paul fan and is one of the few in the MSM helping our cause.

I thought she was smart for a stripper albeit she could have been younger but then she probably wouldn't have been as smart

He is definitely a friend. And more importantly he is the only friend that has their own tv show. I thought the stripper did a good job. She was nervous, but sounded intelligent. And she was cute. The only problem was that she didn't specifically mention any of Paul's positions. She just said he was for less government.

I kind of think Tucker is trying to help Ron Paul a little bit, not as much as he could though. He should have a segement on his show every day about RP.

The other day Tucker claimed he was a "libertarian." I was somewhat surprised, because I always thought he was a Republican. I use to think he was horrible to watch. Then he seemed to change a little bit after Jon Stewart ripped him a new one on crossfire. I hope he keeps getting Ron Pauls name on his show as much as possible.

I used to hate Tucker in his bowtie days and even found him pretty annoying before he started pimping Ron Paul.
I'd say he's doing all he can right now to get the Ron Paul word out. Who knows what kind of pressure he's under from his bosses?

I heard Tucker on the Bubba the Love Sponge show last week, raising hell about the government's attack on the Second Amendment. He got really heated, and I could tell he was not putting on an act. I'm am a cynic, and he convinced me.

The stripper interview was good. I think it's fair to say that Tucker loves Ron Paul, and is going to promote him as much as his MSM bosses will allow.

Ten years ago there were a lot of people torn between the Republican and Libertarian parties, the right wasn't nearly so polarized as they are today.

There are a lot of philosophical libertarians still in the republican party, like Dr. Paul for instance.

Tucker's an interesting dude. He claims he voted for Paul in '88 and that seems to fit with what I know of him, keep in mind in the Crossfire days he was being paid to present an arguement, and not necessarily to win. CNN wasn't exactly a neutral party, though they've improved some I think.

The more interesting question is whether MSNBC will benefit from being an honest broker and allowing their hosts the freedom they apparently do.

It'd be nice if they did, and even better if FAUX suffered.

For those who didn't know, Tucker stated on one of his shows that he voted for Paul during his 1988 presidential run.

I don't think Tucker could be any more open about his support for Paul without jeopardizing his ability to do his job. I mean, why would any other candidate consent to be interviewed by him? He has to maintain at least an illusion of objectivity.

I will only watch MSNBC now. The other day on CNN they were going on and on about how John McCain turned 71 and how he is the oldest candidate in the race. Well I am a former democrat, then I was enlightened by Dr. Paul, so I liked CNN for a long time. I couldn't believe that they said that McCain was the oldest candidate when Dr. Paul is a whole year older. This may seem like something small to the every day person, but when they won't even tell you the truth about who the oldest candidate is (which is a simple fact) it completely discredits them as a news source.

I will not watch anything but MSNBC now, until they screw up and I will just not watch MSM at all.

Works great. Her blog is libertylady.com supposedly, but its a dead site for sale when I check.

Found it:



A little closet airing before it is national news
• 16 Comments

I used to be a stripper.

This was never very important to disclose, but the other night a dear friend called and asked if he could mention me and my past foray into adult entertainment in a blogpost about strippers for Ron Paul. I asked him not to mention my married name and he held true to his promise, but when Tucker Carlson’s associates asked for my contact information for a segment, I had a decision to make. That I’m writing this now tells you what I decided. I’ll tell you my stripper story and hopefully provide some insight into why adult entertainers would support Ron Paul.

My mother tried to raise me in a church. I was a bit of a rebel even as a young child and sought out everything life had to offer. I married too young and as a result, became a young mother. I needn’t tell you where many young marriages end and I certainly don’t have to explain that many young mothers end up making ends meet on their own and without the benefit of child support or welfare. Those things were not what led me into a club on Bourbon Street though. It would be easy to use that one little grain of truth to justify what brought me to a g-string and a pole; it certainly gets the “poor girl” emotion going, but it wouldn’t be right.

Truthfully, I’ve never been afraid of nudity and there was nothing that my mother’s Baptist church or my daddy’s Italian rule could do about it. OK, perhaps I exaggerate. I certainly did not walk into the club asking to strip. It was a knowledge process; my moral compass was established by my parents but I’d seen enough of their porn to know that it was do as I say. I’d been told by society that only “bad girls” wear thongs and if they wear them in view, they’re whores! I went to the club to wait tables after I quit my corporate job to go back to school. The schedule provided the flexibility needed to care for children, attend school, and pay the bills. The jump to dancing happened only after I learned what really didn’t happen in clubs, saw the increased flexibility and, of course, the cash.

Many moral crusaders would have you believe that strip clubs are dens of iniquity where women are fucking for cash at a moment’s notice- on the main stage even. They will tell you that women working in clubs are degraded and are screwed up from years of abuse. They will call in “experts” to tell you how it damages society. I will tell you that they, for the most part, are liars serving their own agendas.

I went back to Corporate America after dancing for a couple of years, and now I’m out of both. Professionally, I’m a small business owner and I’m working on patenting a new idea. More importantly, I’m a wife and mother. As such, I would like to tell you what is degrading. Degrading is punching a timecard for a corporation. Degrading is knowing that you must beg for time off to care for a sick child. And that is before I even start on the government. Asking permission, from any entity, to control your life is degrading and it goes against everything our country was founded upon.

That the Libertarian Party knows and respects this is obvious to any regular reader of this blog, but the issue at hand is “Strippers for Ron Paul.” Why would the adult entertainment industry support such an obvious Christian? It is because the Christian congressman, Ron Paul, understands the proper role of government in the United States of America. Government should not dictate morality. Christians are instructed to cast stones if only free from sin. According to Biblical teaching, we are all born into sin and Ron Paul is the only candidate of the Republican Party doing both what his Constitution and Bible demands. I don’t know which he puts first, but I presume that it doesn’t matter because they aren’t incompatible.

Free will and free persons. Ron Paul will not likely be giving personal support to strippers, in dollars or encouragement, but he supports, in legislation, their right to be free. For that, this mother, wife, small biz owner, inventor, Libertarian Party county chairman, and ex-stripper thanks him.

See you on Tucker Carlson tomorrow @ 6ish… please don’t mention this to my M-I-L- she JUST started to accept me.

It's a very odd situation. Before Ron Paul declared he was running for office I considered tucker one of the biggest douches on television. I laughed at him a lot like I laugh at bill o'reilly...

Now though, I have to admit, he is probably the television personality who has given the most coverage to ron paul and put his neck out the most obviously in his support.

I mean WTF.

If I had to guess who would do that before the fact Tucker would be the last person in the world (maybe after o'reilly) I would think would take the position he has.

Now I don't know what to think. Tucker has acted like a douche in the past, and sometimes still does in other segments of his show but I gotta give the dude MASSIVE PROPS for spreading the word of ron paul when other tv personalities won't. Thanks Tucker!

I'm the former stripper from Tucker today.

Yes, I'm old, but I haven't stripped in years. That particular industry is less kind to its stage players than the acting industry. Of course, I only danced for a couple of years so it was never an issue.

I didn't mention Ron Paul's positions on issues because I'm a Libertarian Party county chairman and not part of Congressman Paul's campaign. I was hoping to provide a generic message that wouldn't bite any of our asses later. I was also very nervous- I only get on TV, on average, once every couple of years- certainly not often enough to quell the nerves.

I hope that I did nothing to damage the campaign, but like I said in the interview, there are many who think like us, they just don't have that sexy, trashy, thing that gets the attention of MSM. It really is a shame that things are the way they are. I just tried to capitalize on an opportunity that is not normally afforded us.

Go Ron Paul and Go Freedom Movement!

BTW, Tucker gave the wrong addy for the blog. It is www.libertarianlady.com. The error was mentioned and corrected in the last minute of the show.

I thought the interview was fantastic and I think you did a great job. You have a stereotype to knock down the second you get on camera and you overcame that immediately.

And yeah disclosing policy in a general way is a good idea when you represent Dr. Paul. Let him get into the details if people are more interested.

I'm curious if you have any insight into the support for Ron Paul in the stripper demo? or the adult industry? I know you touched on it briefly with Tucker but I'm looking for concrete examples.

Thanks for doing the grassroots Ron Paul campaign a very valuable service!

Nice work. If that was your intent you did an excellent job of it. You definitely didn't come off as the stripper stereotype. Hitting on freedom and voter apathy along with Dr. Paul's name is sure to help the cause. Also, no need to start off with "yes, I'm old" you don't look the part. Thanks for the plug and the report. Good luck with your own campaigns where you are from as well.

There are concrete examples, but I don't have them. Stephen Gordon is the person to talk to about that. From personal experience, dancers protect their privacy. That's why a former stripper went on. Believe me, it was a hard decision. I danced two years of my life- it doesn't define me- but, my husband is a doc and tongues will be wagging tomorrow at the hospital. Most people in our circle know us well enough that this will not be a surprise, but there will be some blowback. People generally have negative feelings about things unfamiliar to them, and I was a participant in an industry with an undeserved bad reputation.

Yeah, its funny though. The same people that "look down" on things like strip clubs are usually the first M Fers you catch there at 4 o'clock in the morning, which makes them hypocrites and wouldnt be the type of person to vote for a non-hypocritical guy like Ron Paul in the first place, so I wouldnt worry about that small segment of the population anyway. Nothing worse than a hypocrite in my book.

I'm the former stripper from Tucker today.

Yes, I'm old, but I haven't stripped in years. That particular industry is less kind to its stage players than the acting industry. Of course, I only danced for a couple of years so it was never an issue.

I didn't mention Ron Paul's positions on issues because I'm a Libertarian Party county chairman and not part of Congressman Paul's campaign. I was hoping to provide a generic message that wouldn't bite any of our asses later. I was also very nervous- I only get on TV, on average, once every couple of years- certainly not often enough to quell the nerves.

I hope that I did nothing to damage the campaign, but like I said in the interview, there are many who think like us, they just don't have that sexy, trashy, thing that gets the attention of MSM. It really is a shame that things are the way they are. I just tried to capitalize on an opportunity that is not normally afforded us.

Go Ron Paul and Go Freedom Movement!

BTW, Tucker gave the wrong addy for the blog. It is www.libertarianlady.com. The error was mentioned and corrected in the last minute of the show.

Awesome job! Your appearance on Tucker can only help the campaign. Thanks for spreading Ron's name. And I don't think you look old; I think you look great.

Um, I danced for $20 a song back in the day. Today, I have a small business and my attorney is working on a patent app for me.

I live for "pervs," they were important by the song and they will be important for my idea. (Think textiles, not sex toys.) "Pervs" are what we all are, and I'm not speaking in a sexual manner. Every person who supports something other than the current rule is a pervert by definition.

Seriously, I am lucky to be a live and let live type of person and I appreciate that you guys are the same. As a group, we are hoping that there are more in the country like us than against. I'm truly afraid to see the proof.

I kind of think Tucker is trying to help Ron Paul a little bit, not as much as he could though. He should have a segement on his show every day about RP.

The other day Tucker claimed he was a "libertarian." I was somewhat surprised, because I always thought he was a Republican. I use to think he was horrible to watch. Then he seemed to change a little bit after Jon Stewart ripped him a new one on crossfire. I hope he keeps getting Ron Pauls name on his show as much as possible.

Maybe Jon brought out Truckers real political side. You know the one that he is not paid to do on air.

Yeah, it boggles the mind doesnt it? I mean, what does he have to do, stalk Ron Paul outside his home at night for them to believe he supports him?

He cant just talk about Ron Paul all the time, otherwise he would look really biased and not be taken seriously when talking about other candidates. People in the news have to be careful about stuff like that.

Personal opinion: this wasn't that great. [flames INCOMING]

I just fielded invections from an old GOP friend who ran into -- get this -- atheists supporting Ron Paul in Iowa at the straw poll. Now, I am HAPPY to have atheists supporting Ron Paul. I am happy to have strippers supporting Ron Paul. But I would be THRILLED for members of NAMBLA come out publicly for Benito Giuliani.

Sympathetic as I am to atheists and strippers, and not so much to members of NAMBLA, preach to your private choirs. Was there any REALLY good reason for these guys at the Iowa Straw Poll to announce to my friend (who was clearly neither an atheist nor anti-war -- his other beef) that they were atheists?

In summary, Tucker is very obviously all about getting ratings for Tucker, and not for helping Ron Paul.

Honestly there arent really that many TRUE conservative christians in this country. Sure there are alot of hypocrites that call themselves that, but not many real ones. Most of them that call themselves that are really nothing but people who support the war and see our involvement as some kind of holy battle with Islam. Were not going to get that vote, face it. What we need to do is gather all the different types of people out there with different beliefs regardless of religion that dont want their beliefs pushed on others, you know, the majority of america, including, but not just christians. Remember, only about 30 percent of the population still supports this war, so let the neo-cons split the "islamo facist terr'ist" fearing vote and concentrate on bringing the rest in. We dont need to "cater" to any group. The message of freedom and liberty to live your life the way you want, to watch the kind of "filth" in movies you want, to be religious or to not be religious. Get those middle of the road democrats, get those classic conservatives, the libertarians, the previous non-voters, the people that are completely fed up with todays political system and I guarantee, if we can get the word out to the majority of those people in time, we WILL WIN. Its just a question of can we do it or not.

Just my opinion

He started the segment by saying, "as any faithful viewer of this show know, we are big fans of Ron Paul and not afraid to say so"

plus, he had nothing but praise to say the entire interview

Yeah, I agree with your point that an interview without pointing out someone being a stripper (or an atheist, as you mentioned) would be better, but perhaps the higher-ups wouldn't allow that? It's all speculation, and based on how he acted, he seems to be in favor of Dr. Paul.
