Who should rule the world?

John Hawkins over at Right Wing News is putting together a survey to counteract the BBC thing from last week asking depraved leftists to pick who they would want to rule the world, by asking conservative types who they would choose in such a thing.

Of course, it's silly, as a devotee to the political and economic theory of Freidrich Hayek the answer is nobody should or can rule the world.

That said, however, here was my response (given that I think I went outside of the spirit of the request, the odds of my answers showing up in the results are, as they say in your measley earth-languages, slim):

First of all, I object to the premise, as we all know Ted Nugent already rules the world; that said, here are my answers:

1. William Shatner (as Capt. James T. Kirk)
2. Kurt Russell (as Snake Plissken)
3. Kurt Schilling (we would conquer Mars under the banner of the bloody Sock!)
4. Ann Coulter (sure, she would enslave us all and install herself with all the depraved decadence of Pharaoh, but come on, the image of Ann, up on the Sedan Chair, being carried around by a bunch of oiled up enslaved Kos diarists is too rich to pass up)
5. The Triumvirate of Dave Barry, Tony Kornheiser, and James Lileks (because there would be "fart" jokes on the currency)
6. The mummified body of Jeremy Bentham

and last but certainly not least:

7. Pope Jonah I, with his infallible sidekick Cosmo the wunder Cardinal dog.

Needless to say, I prefer to be ruled by a world that amuses me.

Oooh Oooh, I want Ann. She can whip me and grind her stilleto encased toe on me.
Oh, as world ruler?

PS, it's Curt, not Kurt.
