    Question Alabama Libertarian Governor candidate campaigns on cleavage, t-shirts, and pot

    MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - 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.''

    Nall, who spoke in an interview Friday on the Capitol steps, realizes that is about as close as she is going to get to the governor's office. But her outrageous antics have helped her attract attention not normally enjoyed by write-in candidates.

    Nall is calling for the withdrawal of the Alabama National Guard from Iraq, tax credits for sending children to private school and home schooling, opting out of the No Child Left Behind Act, legalizing marijuana, and not complying with the Patriot Act and the Real ID Act.

    The Libertarian Party could not collect the 40,000 voter signatures needed to get her name on the ballot, and she has not reached the $25,000 threshold in contributions that would require her to file a campaign finance report.

    Despite the political handicaps, she knows how to get free attention.

    Early in her campaign, she talked about how her misdemeanor arrest for marijuana possession in 2002 led her to start the U.S. Marijuana Party.

    Then she entertained readers of her campaign Web site with lots of information about her personal life, including a discussion of why she doesn't wear panties.

    The virtue of spirit has no need for thanks or approval. Only the certain conviction that what has been done is right. -Jor El, as played by Marlon Brando

    Sorry Rhino, I couldn't resist this one. Hopefully, if you lived in Alabama you wouldn't vote for this fruitcake.
