It’s 2018 and I feel like life is a really messed up mix of House of Cards and trashy reality tv. Since there’s one thing we’ve learned about politics, it’s that anything can happen, and anyone is qualified.
Today, Cynthia Nixon a.k.a Miranda Hobbes from Sex and The City, announced that she is throwing her name in the ring to run for the governor of New York, against current governor Andrew Cuomo. If you haven’t watched the Holy Grail of television shows, Cynthia played a career-minded lawyer who graduated from Harvard Law, and happens to have extremely cynical views on relationships and men. Her fictional characters’ credentials alone already make her a shoo-in for the position. A strong, ambitious woman who has her shit together and is distrustful of men?? She reminds me of my Debby downer of a bestie so she most definitely has my vote!
In her campaign video, Cynthia says that New York is her home, and how much she loves the city, all over footage of her spending time with her family. Of course she loves New York, she hasn’t left the city, in at least 6 years. I do have one question though, and that’s where the hell are Steve and Brady at?? I was hoping that they were planning on making a cameo in this campaign video.
In her voiceovers, Cynthia says that “Our leaders are letting us down. We are now the most unequal state in the entire country, with both incredible wealth and extreme poverty.” All we have to say to that is: SAY IT LOUDER FOR THE PEOPLE IN THE BACK. After all the potential celebrity political campaigns (Oprah 2020 anyone??) that have come out of Trump being in office, this one is one of the less offensive ones.
However, celebrity status aside, Cynthia has been actively involved in New York city politics and activism for decades, so why not take it to a bigger stage. I guess now we know for sure that the Sex And The City 3 movie is not happening, she should win just for saving us from that torture. Tbh, Miranda was always a bore so who cares, in the words of the best character on SATC, Sammy Jo:
