"It's not a new idea, but I'm finally starting to see the point: The United States should have a king and queen. They would be appointed, I guess, by some kind of secret cartel with no democratic trappings at all, and they would be succeeded by their heirs until the last generation of the royal clan. Tom Hanks would make a good king, I think, and Lady Gaga would be a fine queen. They'd have to marry each other -- we don't want some trashy living-in-sin king and queen; standards must be upheld -- but they'd be doing it for the entire nation." (05/23/11)
