    ScarJo for President

    By kyle | March 30, 2017

    She’s closing in on 35, and she’s talking about running for office. Why think small, though? She’d be the youngest president. The first woman president. And the first Jewish president. More in a column.

      She is so much less attractive when she starts to speak.

      In the scene in “Iron Man 2”, where Scar Jo was easily beating up 10 to 20 large muscular men while the camera was mainly concentrating on her spandex clad, 5 star backside, I came to virtually the same conclusion.

      “I think it could be interesting”

      Not to help people, not b/c she has something to contribute, but b/c she likes to do “interesting” things. No thanks. Take up knitting instead.

      Related: I hate that insipid word “interesting,” which uninteresting people use as filler when they cannot think of what to say.

      She is one hot communist.

      She’ll need more of that mind altering drug that Morgan Freeman was going to study. The bob job just isn’t quite enough.
