C’mon Marianne

Political sadist satirist Jim Treacher predicts that our 46th President will be, um, Marianne Williamson, and here are some reasons why:

1. She can dance. Remember who the Dems nominated in 2016? Remember her dancing?

Which would be a good argument for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as #47. Juat saying.

2. She says lots of things that connect with the American people.

And this is where we came in:

3. She’s hot. Marianne Williamson isn’t just hot for a 66-year-old woman, she’s just plain hot-hot. Have we ever really had a hot president? I know a lot of people said this guy, but I never saw it. No offense to President Trump, but Marianne is way hotter. Time for an upgrade!

Marianne Williamson seems happy

Said she in Healing the Soul of America (1997):

It is a task of our generation to recreate the American politeia, to awaken from our culture of distraction and re-engage the process of democracy with soulfulness and hope. Yes, we see there are problems in the world. But we believe in a universal force that, when activated by the human heart, has the power to make all things right. Such is the divine authority of love: to renew the heart, renew the nations, and ultimately, renew the world.

Number 4, Jim: she can use words like “politeia” and not sound ridiculous.

    That 1997 excerpt couldn’t be used in Buzzword Bingo because half of those playing would win before the end of the first sentence.

    Then again, she did make the cut for the next set of debates (though “debates” is hardly the word for them).

    Theologically, it’s not so alien to a lot of mainline Protestant theology. Being a vessel of they peace. In any case, it’s far better than some recent iterations of faith I’ve seen in the public discourse.
