Maggie Gyllenhaal for President!
With the 2008 U.S. President election candidates all decided, it’s time to look further ahead. Who should the anti-war movement be looking to represent their cause in 2012? Step forward, actress Maggie Gyllenhaal (above), staunch opponent of ‘Shock and Awe’ and star of the new film The Dark Knight.
A truly radical US President needs to be both brave and a real non-conformist, someone who will take on powerful vested interests. And what more radical statement of bravery and non-conformity in tobaccophobic 21st century America can there be than to light up a cigar (and rather a large one at that), on a television discussion programme, as Ms Gyllenhaal does in the clip above.
A female American President is long overdue. But instead of the warmongering frump Hillary Clinton, how much better an antiwar good-looker like Ms Gyllenhaal?
The ‘Gyllenhaal 2012' campaign starts here!
