This is a monumental announcement. Right now, Johansson is just another clueless Hollywood know nothing, but if she should win office, it could be legendary. Imagine her competing with Nancy Pelosi, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Diane Feinstein, Maxine Waters and Sheila Jackson Lee for the title of all time dumbest female elected official. I think she could do it.
Johansson appearing on Good Morning America revealed a more serious side than the usual celebrity blather and acknowledged her interest in politics, stating she’s been “interested” in local politics for quite some time. “I’ve always, like I said, been interested in local politics,” the actress said. “Right now, I think with my young daughter and also the way my career is going right now … it’s just not the right time. But eventually, maybe when my daughter is older and I can totally focus myself on something like that, I think it could be interesting.”
However to her credit she acknowledged that the free market dictates how people view her aside from her acting career saying; “If fighting, you know, for women’s rights, for women’s reproductive rights, and you know, in support of Planned Parenthood, if that’s going to, you know, mean that some people don’t want to buy a ticket to see Ghost in the Shell, then … I’m OK with that.”
But in the long run, it won’t matter. Since Johansson resides in Hollywood, no matter if she wins or loses there will be a mentally challenged liberal cupcake in that seat. She’d be no better or worse than any of them. That’s the tragedy of it.
