Move over, Jimmy Kimmel. Kathy Griffin is gunning to be Levi Johnston’s campaign manager as he runs for mayor of Wasilla, Alaska, and she even has a strategy all dreamed up.

“The campaign would be based on me being the first lady,” the comedian, who once feigned a relationship with Johnston for laughs, tells PEOPLE. “But it would also be based on a celebration of Levi trolling the town shirtless – or being photographed in the shower in various stages of undress.”

While Kimmel offered his services (in jest) a week ago, Griffin points out that the former Playgirl model’s mayoral bid is less about “pomp and circumstance” and more about “pomp and naked stance.”
