That’s a sentence best read literally.
While many of you will know Dash as the fabulously dressed Dionne, the best friend of Alicia Silverstone’s character in Clueless, others of you will know her as a dumb-as-nails conservative commentator who will do anything for attention.
Dash has consistently supported Republican candidates and espoused conservative values throughout her career — which is surprising, considering she has the sort of rough background that would inject most people with a dash of empathy.
For reference, Dash has revealed in her memoir There Goes My Social Life that her parents neglected her while she was growing up in the South Bronx. Later, she told People that she was once forced to consider an abortion after her abusive boyfriend threatened to kill her.
Surprisingly, Dash frequently cites the latter incident as justification for her support of gun owner rights; after all, she used a gun to fend off her would-be attacker. (But we’re willing to bet Miss Thang was rocking a handgun and not an assault rifle.)
In any case, Dash may have a tough time connecting with conservative voters, considering she posed naked for Playboy in August 2006. While most of us don’t care, there’s probably still some SoCal residential organization comprised of old ladies who won’t vote for her now just because of that. Also, it’s pretty weird that Dash has justified her decision to pose for Playboy by saying that she “conferred with her children” before agreeing to the shoot.
We can imagine how that went.
“Mommy’s gotta take her top off for millions of readers because her acting career is going down the drain.”
“Ew, Mom, that’s gross!”
“Yeah, well, do you want the nice cereal from Whole Foods or not??”
Dash is running as a Republican in the staunchly Democrat 44th District, which encompasses Compton, Watts, San Pedro and North Long Beach. The area voted overwhelmingly for Hillary Clinton in 2016. Dash is clearly CLUELESS when it comes to her chances of winning the race.
