If you're a Louisiana voter, the midterm elections in 2010 might force you to make a difficult decision: Reelect Republican Sen. David Vitter, or vote instead for porn star and potential Democratic challenger Stormy Daniels?

At the Plank, the New Republic's Michelle Cottle offers one way to think about the choice:

If I'm a Louisiana voter trying to determine who's the sharper cookie, what are my options?: A gal who made a reasonably comfortable living off exploiting the ungovernable urges of some men or a married public official who risked everything for the privilege of paying large sums of money for some working girl to handle his urges.

Tough call.
