Cheers to You, Lovely Lady!

Cristina Fernández de Kirchner (a beautiful Pisces woman with Moon in Taurus. Mmm, just my type!) was elected president of Argentina on Sunday, by the widest margin recorded since the 1983 elections. Argentina now joins nations like Panama, Ireland, Britain, and even Canada in electing women to their highest post.

Meanwhile, the “progressive” and “liberated” U.S. still trips over itself, trying to shed its closet-misogynistic, Christian white male fetish while ardently adhering to its closet-misogynistic, Christian white male fetish philosophy.

Although I know that Cristina herself is a former Argentina First Lady, my hope is that American can elect a woman other than a Hilary Clinton-type; I’m talking a real woman, an authentic woman, not a woman merely imitating a man (that kinda defeats the purpose of electing a woman, doesn’t it?)—a woman like you, my sister, my mother, my grandmother, any woman I’ve dated in my life and not simply some power-hungry thief and phony.

Today, let’s hope that at some point soon, a woman just like you steps up, announces her intention to lead the nation from its grandest soapbox, and then captures that nation’s heart in the process.

When that happens, perhaps we’ll all believe in America once again.

Until then, we can only eye Argentina from afar, witness her history-in-the-making glory, and say, “Cheers to you, lovely lady!”
