Just read that Lena Dunham, the "star" of the cable show "Girls" has joined the celebrity short bus that doubles as a political bandwagon by threatening to leave the US if Donald Trump is elected.
Quoting the very modestly talented, but very foul-mouthed actress:
I know a lot of people have been threatening to do this, but I really will, I know a lovely place in Vancouver and I can get my work done from there.
I've written about Dunham before, but suffice it to say, I've seen her show; I've seen her forays into pop politics before.
It's hard to say which underwhelms me more.
But when I read this latest eructation, I was genuinely conflicted.
On the one hand, as a native-born Canadian, I would not wish Lena Dunham on the land of my birth. Additionally, I have relatives in Vancouver, and they do not deserve this sort of punishment.
On the other hand, as a current American, I see the up-side here.
- Hillary Clinton not in power
- One less middling, big-mouthed, self-indulgent millenial taking up space here in California
- Four years of President Oompa Loompa
- We owe them for Justin Beiber.
That looks like a win-win-win-win to me. That's a DOUBLE win-win.
So with apologies to my former mates, the Canadian half of my family, and my uncle Bob specifically, I am all in to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN.
