Leslie Knope For President


“First, since I believe that the civil rights and egalitarianism our founding fathers instilled in this nation are not to be trifled with, I would issue a presidential order that would very simply state: marriage equality for all. Please don’t tell me that gay marriage ruins marriage for straight people. I watched every second of the Kardashian-Humphries trainwreck. If the institution of marriage can survive that, it can survive two 50-year-old ladies quietly expressing their love in a courthouse somewhere.”

“Leslie Knope” wrote a piece for Variety about what she’d do if she was elected president. It involves Beyonce and waffles. I’m on board! Knope/Swanson 2012!
