If he wins, Johnston promises to fulfill his duty as the town's mayor.
And should his candidacy prove successful in Wasilla, Jones said he's got Johnston's sights set next on the Alaska governor's race -- and it's not entirely clear whether he's kidding or not. (And if it again sounds too far-fetched, remember that Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jesse Ventura were elected governor in much more populous states.)
Johnston -- who describes himself as "half red-neck, half Hollywood" -- said he hoped the show would correct what he believes are misconceptions about him in the media.
"It's hard to figure me out," he said.
Actually, Levi, you're pretty easy to figure out: You're a famewhore baby-daddy-to-two with a messed up, drug-addled family.
In other words, the perfect candidate!
The Variety piece doesn't say whether Johnston will run as a Republican or not. One can only hope.
In all seriousness, while American politics was the original reality television, I'm bugged by a stunt candidacy as much as I was by the Salahis' White House dinner party incursion.
Stay the fuck away from my government, you tacky fools.
