I’m thinking, let’s just scrap this whole thing and go back to a monarchy. Don’t get me wrong; I want a modern monarchy like Britain, where there’s a parliamentary democracy underlying it, but the whole head of state and head of government being one and the same thing sucks, too, so I say let’s kick the presidency to the curb and get us a prime minister and a royal family.

I love them—and not because I’m a starfucker. I’ve just really admired Jolie’s UN ambassadorship and million-dollars-at-a-time donations and various other humanitarian stuff for years. She’s tres cool.
