Janet Jackson doesn't like war, it turns out

Janet Jackson has turned her mind to the subject of politics. And she just wants to share with us:

"I am not satisfied with the situation in this world. I hate war. Hillary Clinton as president -- that would be great. Then she could show all those people who wouldn't trust a woman with such a job."

Although we can't quite see the difference between adopting Hilary as president because she's a woman and not allowing her to be president for exactly the same reason. If she's the person for the job, she's the person for the job, surely?

And we're not sure Janet's analysis holds up anyway - aren't the people who object to the idea of Hilary in charge the sort of people who don't trust democrats with the job, regardless of which side of the toilet wall they squat on?

Still, the news that Janet isn't satifisfied by the world situation. The UN have issued an ashamed press release and promised to try and do better.

"Most people aren't satisified with the state of the world" is irrelevant; most people don't have a platform on which they can express their disatisfaction. Janet does, and what does she do? Mumble some half-assed and undirected suggestion that it's wrong and then suggest Hilary Clinton should be president - not because of anything she offers, not because of her policies, not because of her beliefs, but because of her gender.

I wasn't "picking" on Janet, I was actually engaging with her politics-lite. I realise you may feel anything other than spontaneous applause and an order for an enhanced double-CD pack of Control might be considered "picking on" someone, but really, that isn't.

Oh, and "get a life" - what are you, posting from a Commodore 64?
