I was amusing myself imagining a dream candidate, one that would attract a lot of crossover votes. I came up with this political personality:
And this physical image:
I would so vote for this man. Of course, because I’m not quite that shallow, I would vote in a second for Christie even if he didn’t look like Keanu. But it would certainly be nice if he did….
What helps is that Keanu keeps his mouth shut: he doesn’t bloviate about politics and the environment. He does his job and goes home. It’s the same reason I like Brendan Fraser. They keep the fantasy alive by allowing me to impose my values on their appealing screen personalities, without spewing forth venom and stupidity on a regular basis.
