New developments in monarchy

Some time ago I posted about the Queen of America.

Peter Kurth of Dissident Voice nominates Angelina Jolie.

Not only does America need a monarchy, but, in my opinion, it needs an absolute monarchy.

Not one of those squishy “constitutional” numbers they have in England, for instance, but an honest-to-God, autocratic, crack-the-whip, Russian-style despotism, with all power invested in a single person, whose will is law and who is, in the end, inseparable from the State itself.
And this person would have to be a woman, because, let’s face it, a woman as dominatrix is easier to sell.
Under Bush, most Americans have proved beyond a shadow of doubt that they don’t care a hoot about democracy, but those few remaining holdouts are a hard nut to crack, and only a woman with iron lips can do it.

But the real beauty of Angelina Jolie as queen of America is that her reign wouldn’t change a thing.

Not convincing. But Kurth does address an important point well.
I rush to assure you that, as queen, Angelina’s husband, Brad Pitt, would play no political role apart from Prince Consort and farm stud.
Nice try, but I'm still pulling for Sigorney Weaver.

Angelina is too creepy to be Queen. We need someone who cares about her people. Sigourney is a much better choice.
