Dear God, No!

Picture This: Ben Affleck, Senator from Va.

If you liked him as Bennifer . . . you’ll love him as Benator!

That’s the hot new idea being tossed around by Virginia Democrats, who are desperately searching for a big name to challenge the reelection bid of rising GOP star Sen. George Allen next year, now that outgoing Gov. Mark Warner has ducked out.

Affleck spokesman Ken Sunshine said the rumors are baseless, though “he would be a superb candidate for public office in the future. Right now, he’s very busy directing his first feature movie for Disney, ‘Gone, Baby, Gone.’ “

And why would he be a “superb candidate for public office”?  Would it be his broad knowledge in foreign affairs? (No). Perhaps it is his brilliance in domestic economic matters? (No).

Teeth! Sparkly eyes! Box office draw! Yeah baby, that’s what I’m talkin’ ’bout. And Matt Damon can be First Lady! Wow, what a winning ticket!


I can’t wait for his first appearance with Bill O’Reilly.
