On The Lighter Side

Thank you, thank you - if you get raped don't come crying to me, thank you.

"Thank you, thank you - if you get raped don't come crying to me - thank you."

“This is about who should run our country. I would love to see Angelina Jolie speak. I think she’s pretty and wears nice clothing and she loves her kids — but that does not make her a VP.”

That’s it! We should get someone like Angelina Jolie to be on the Democratic ticket in the next election if Obama doesn’t win this one! I’m not saying she, whoever “she” may be, should run with Hillary – Hillary can choose her own vp – but if Hillary decides not to run then we should definately put someone like Angelina Jolie on the ticket. Let’s see… we’ll need contenders:

(in no particular order)

  1. Angelina Jolie
  2. Juila Roberts
  3. Susan Sarandon
  4. Meryl Streep
  5. Glenn Close (for irony if not her political views)
  6. Joan Allen (ditto – and if you don’t get that, see The Contender)
  7. Uma Thurman
  8. Daryl Hannah
  9. Angela Bassett
  10. (veto Halle Berry – Catwoman clips=devastating)
  11. Michelle Pfeiffer
  12. Gina Gershon
  13. Jennifer Aniston
  14. Gwen Paltrow (yeah, I put them next to eachother, good catch)
  15. Sally Field
  16. Elizabeth Shue
  17. Natalie Portman
  18. Madonna
  19. Geena Davis
  20. Drew Barrymore
  21. Lucy Liu
  22. Vivica Fox
  23. Demi Moore
  24. Jada Pinkett-Smith
  25. Sarah Michelle Gellar (for good measure)

Now, picture them with short hair, neutral makeup, and a pantsuit. Ok, scratch the short hair requirement – but we’d need a way to make it…functional/no fuss. Oh, and no skirts – though I guess that is covered by the pantsuit. Oh, and no clevage (sorry Meryl). Oh, and not smilng so much as smugly pleased with something (sorry Drew).

Ok, well this should get us started. Mock-up pictures to follow.

(NOTE: most of this is dripping with sarcasm, but it is not outside the realm of possibility to get an actor/actress into the whitehouse. They just need to be a govenor first – though I would accept Senator with a side of solid-management-experience.)
