"Ask Kenya McKnight About The Queen Of England!"
A source tells me Ward 5 city council challenger Kenya McKnight holds some fairly interesting political views, as evidenced by some conversations this source had and/or heard personally from Kenya's mouth in the not-so-long ago past. Apparently, Kenya...
...said neither Obama nor Hilary Clinton would manage to get elected president. Why? Well, because the Queen of England would NEVER let that happen. You see, the Queen of England has...um...secret power and control over American elections.
Seriously. Kenya BELIEVES this lunacy, or at least she did prior to the November 2008 election. My source--who was laughing so hard I thought he/she would bust a gut--kept saying, "Johnny!!!! ASK KENYA MCKNIGHT ABOUT THE QUEEN OF ENGLAND!!! ASK HER!!!"
(Hence my headline)
My source reports Kenya is a very nice person--even kind of fun--but when she opens up her mouth and starts talking about the secret powers of the Queen of England, you know the house may be lawfully and legally occupied but some of the lamps in the upstairs bedrooms have Crazy Bulbs.
What is the source of this lunacy? (It's not like Kenya came up with this on her own, it is somebody else's half-baked political dogma)
Well, I was told the source of the political dogma, too, but this is the kind of thing I'd like to confirm with another source before publishing it. Let's just say there are relatively few political and/or religious organizations who believe the Queen of England exerts secret control over American presidential politics, and I'm sure well-read JNS blog readers have heard of both of them.
One has to wonder whether Her Majesty has some opinion about Kenya McKnight getting elected to Minneapolis City Council.
At least Kenya will have somebody besides herself to blame on election night. Yes, somebody "across the pond," as it were.
