I do not doubt that Bruce Jenner was a superb Olympic gold-winning athlete and, as Caitlyn Jenner, a horrible reality show performer on “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” and its spin-off, “I Am Cait.”…


As a Republican nominee for Governor, if Gavin Newsolini is recalled, Jenner is a no-go. Even with casual help from former Trump 2020 campaign manager Brad Parscale. There are infinitely better choices; even the alphabet people in the LGBTQ-rights community are unlikely to support her given her association with Donald Trump.

One might think that such an underdog would open with a splash instead of a sad, barren website devoid of issue positions and only selling campaign-logo merchandise and soliciting donations…


Déjà vu all over again…

Like Arnold Schwarzenegger, the abject failure of a celebrity governor who governed like a corrupt progressive socialist democrat rather than a Republican, Jenner, too, is running as a celebrity Republican. I cannot imagine what qualifies Jenner to manage a complex state in decline like California. Certainly not her degree in physical education from Graceland College in 1973. Certainly not her business experience with endorsements and other ventures. Certainly not her transgender activism.  And certainly not her ability to boost Republican fortunes in a one-party state. Perhaps, she believes the Governorship is a “titular title?” Other than her Olympic success, Jenner’s real claim to fame is as the father of the uber-cute multi-mega-millionaires, Kylie and Kendell Jenner.

My choices…

If I wanted a celebrity likely to be a solid conservative and an effective governor, I would select the iconic actor James Woods – the man who voluntarily called the FBI to report what is now known to have been a 9/11 trial run by the terrorists aboard Woods' aircraft.


But, if I wanted a media-savvy political fighter who is unafraid of controversy, my first choice would be Ric Grenell, U.S. State Department spokesperson to the United Nations, Special Presidential Envoy for Serbia and Kosovo Peace Negotiations, United States Ambassador to Germany, and the Acting Director of National Intelligence. And a Republican!

Bottom line…

I am not sure this is a media stunt, the right of an ego-manic to be known as a former gubernatorial candidate, or a chance to build a war check that can be leveraged into a cushy political appointment? But there is no way I would want to repeat the Schwarzenegger experience with a c-class celebrity. 

And for comic relief, let us not forget that Mary Carey, the former porn star, is also officially running for California governor.

We are so screwed.
