Are you listening, NRSC, DSCC and, uh, David Vitter?

There is a new recruiter in politics these days, and it ain’t Rahm, Chuck Schumer, Mike Duncan, Howard Dean, Jim Nussle, John Cornyn, Norm Coleman or [insert any name here].

It’s … Craigslist?

Yes, Craigslist items are a bit overserved, but bear with us.

The site has an ad seeking a woman to run against one of the embattled Republican senators, David Vitter. Vitter, did you think people had forgotten about you?

And, oddly — or not, depending on how you look at it — the ad is looking for a woman who has “a history in some aspect of the adult entertainment industry.”

Read below:

“Seeking a female candidate to challenge David Vitter in the Republican primary for the United States Senate in 2010. Candidate must be over 30 years old and a registered Republican in the state of Louisiana. Beyond this, we are looking for a candidate with a history in some aspect of the adult entertainment industry who has taken the benefit of that experience both monetarily and otherwise and translated it into success in their later career.

“Candidate will have the benefit of an experienced campaign staff, including finance and media teams. Reasonable compensation as allowed by federal campaign finance rules will be offered. This is a serious offer for a serious candidate who cares about the direction of her state and community and who is willing to accept the serious commitment of a statewide political campaign.

“Please forward a résumé or CV with contact information along with a 200-word description telling us who you are and why you think you are the ideal candidate to challenge David Vitter.”
