He can't get into the White House anymore, so Tareq Salahi is going for the next-best thing - the Governor's Mansion. After his entire life crumbled at his feet when his wife left him, his winery went bankrupt and he looked like a fool in front of the whole world, you'd think Salahi would skulk off into obscurity. But like any famewhore, this one has burst back into the tabloids with news that is sure to get him a little attention. Salahi announced his intention to run for governor of Virginia on TMZ, citing his desire to change how things are run in the Commonwealth - we assume by drawing on his reality TV experience and life lessons learned when his wife left him for the guitarist of Journey. Oh, and running a thriving winery business into the ground. Salahi said, "I am troubled to see how our current political figureheads continue to waste tax payer dollars! I'm a big believer in limited government, keeping taxes, regulation and litigation low, and if I do win, everyone is invited to crash the inauguration!" As long as it's televised, we're guessing.
