Love Them and Leave Us

I’m with Booman on this: what is with the right-wing punditry’s obsession with getting foreign leaders to run our country?

Ann Coulter wants Benjamin Netanyahu to be our president, Erick Erickson wants David Cameron to be our president, and Fox News host Kimberly Guilfoyle would be okay with either Netanyahu or Vladimir Putin being our president.

I’ve got a better idea: let Ann Coulter move to Israel, Erick Erickson move to Great Britain, and Kimberly Guilfoyle can move to Russia.  They’ll get the leaders they want and we’ll be rid of them here.  Win-win.

One bark on “Love Them and Leave Us

  1. Reminder: this is one more Othering of the President. Notice that each and every one of the preferred stand-ins is a white male. For comparison, Merkel did exactly what the Teahad wanted with the finance sector – and you’ll notice that nobody on that side of the precipice aisle wants her. It’s not that Obama isn’t manly enough, or tough enough, or effective enough – it’s (once again) that he’s just not white enough.
