Britain Breathes Easier
…SUSAN SARANDON … says if John McCain gets elected, she will move to Italy or Canada…
As she also movingly (no pun intended) points out, “It’s a critical time, but I have faith in the American people.” Yes, nothing like demonstrating one’s “faith” by planning to abscond. In contrast, if my fellow countrymen actually do feel the need to choose Sen Obama for the presidency, yours truly might wonder about having to return: for, in electing him, America must really be in need of all the help it can get.
But upon hearing of Ms Sarandon’s chosen exile destinations, Britain, this morning, was probably breathing a huge sigh of relief. Then again Ms Sarandon probably couldn’t choose Britain because there isn’t space. It already has its American actor idiot Kant in residence: Ms Sarandon likely can’t be fit in until Lady Gwyneth departs. (Incidentally, it’s starting to look, however, like Ms Sarandon wouldn’t be “wait-listed” for too long.)
By the way, what happened to Sen Obama as the can’t lose messiah guy? And that the really old fellow opposing him hasn’t a prayer in heck? Are things not quite as rosy amongst the elevated, intellectual world of dopes geniuses (who don’t know Auschwitz was in Poland) as we had been led to believe?
But Canada and Italy to escape the entrenched forces of reaction? Hmmm. Apparently, the former film major doesn’t realize with Sen McCain’s win, she’d be stepping from the Ike into the conservative fire. Here’s a quick snapshot of the current governing tendencies of her top choices, as well as what could be other suitable exile locales:
Italy: conservative government.
Canada: conservative government.
France: conservative government.
Germany: conservative government.
Denmark: conservative government.
Sweden: conservative government.
Britain: a conservative government — in the words of Melanie Phillips, “…the Tories [appear] on course for a majority of several trillion seats…”— pretty much any day now.
As if all of that weren’t bad enough, even Australia’s Blanchett-ish government might not provide real sanctuary, given its neanderthal leader’s having had the nerve to voice some disquiet — “absolutely revolting” — over the “art” that is obviously in evidence in gallery-displayed photographs of naked 13 year olds.
That makes probably Spain the best place for Ms Sarandon in Western Europe. However, if the threat of voters perhaps choosing not to back Sr Zapatero’s government at some point is just a little too much cause for concern for Ms Sarandon, well, there’s always Cuba. For one hears voters there aren’t even allowed the opportunity foolishly to oust that “progressive” government.
