If the hot pink background, leopard print fonts, the glitterized statements or even LMFAO’s I’m Sexy and I Know it blaring in the background doesn’t render you speechless, perhaps her maybe-endearing-mostly-bizarre comments that her main inspiration is Legally Blonde’s fictional character, Elle Woods, will prompt a very solid facepalm as you realize THIS is what American politics has evolved into. And clearly this is why Mindy Meyer has also been trending in the US this week.
We still can’t decide whether Meyer, a 22-year-old, Orthodox Jewish woman attending law school at Touro College, is REALLY running for NY State Senate, or is part of a larger viral campaign that involves trolling the American political system.
Although with the amount of media coverage she’s received from notable media sources like CNN, ABC and New York Times it’s beginning to look more and more like Meyer is the real deal and she’s gonna fight to be “Diva of the District.”
For all we know, maybe she stands a chance in this day and age. Heck, if Elle Woods brought pink to Harvard, why couldn’t Meyer bring pink to the senate?
All I gotta say is I hold a bit of a soft spot for her cause: a) she’s not running for politics in Canada so thumbs up for that, and b) she makes a Hunger Games reference in her “Issues” section. That’s pretty hilarious in my books LOL
