They are both charismatic and have large, devoted followings. But according to drag queen and television host RuPaul, that’s where the similarities end. ”Contrary to recent reports, I did not come in third in the Iowa caucus. I am not even a member of the Republican Party. But I am a proud American,” RuPaul stated via press release, hoping to clear up any…ahem…confusion there might be between himself and the Texas Congressman and Republican presidential candidate.
Not that politics isn’t in RuPaul’s blood, too. “[A]nytime a man leaves the house in a wig and a pair of cha cha heels, he’s making a political statement. Let us not forget that this great nation was founded by a bunch of men wearing wigs,” RuPaul reminds the country, as he continues to act as the living embodiment of the New Hampshire motto “Live Free or Die.”
Still, don’t expect the glamourous entertainer to show up in any of the debates being held in the state this weekend, or even on the campaign trail in the state. Instead, he’ll be busy using his “RuPaul/Ron Paul” connection to promote his television show, album, and shoe line, perfect for running for office.
I bet those “number of the beast” pink heels would go great with a Rick Santorum sweater vest.
