Why Amy Poehler Is the President the United States Really Needs

Because bitches get stuff done.

Let's face it, the Presidential election has got everyone feeling like Britney Spears in 2007. Stressed, depressed, and not so well dressed. Our country is in need of a true leader, so forget Clinton and Trump. If we all are willing to be truly honest with ourselves, we can admit that the only person for the job is our very own Amy Poehler. Here are a few reasons why she is the only one who can truly "Make America Great Again".

We all know and love Amy Poehler as Leslie Knope on Parks and Recreation, her multiple personalities portrayed on SNL, her countless films, and New York Times Best Seller books. Her ability to play characters, especially through Leslie Knope, who is completely invested in being the best political servant she can be shows her credibility and should prove to us already that she would be an incredible President.

Amy Poehler doesn't let anyone push her around, which leads me to my next point in that she would not only stand up for herself while in Office but be a voice and an advocate to people everywhere as our next President.

She understands that sometimes, you just need to let your freak flag fly, and nothing says that better than a little break dancing which she proves to be the best at (just like she would be the best President... coincidence?)

Amy Poehler is fully aware of her own self-worth. Her confidence is off the charts and knows that she is the best at everything that she does.

This is what Amy would have to say for anyone doubting that a woman could make a good President for whatever idiotic reasons they believe to be true.

I think we can all agree as a country that Amy Poehler has already proven just by being her amazing self that she is not only the President that America wants, but the President that America needs... and let's not forget about VP Tina Fey. Why? Because...

To The Friends I Won't Talk To After High School

I sincerely hope, every great quality I saw in you, was imprinted on the world.


So, for the last four years I’ve seen you almost everyday. I’ve learned about your annoying little brother, your dogs and your crazy weekend stories. I’ve seen you rock the awful freshman year fashion, date, attend homecoming, study for AP tests, and get accepted into college.

Thank you for asking me about my day, filling me in on your boy drama and giving me the World History homework. Thank you for complimenting my outfits, laughing at me presenting in class and listening to me complain about my parents. Thank you for sending me your Quizlets and being excited for my accomplishments- every single one of them. I appreciate it all because I know that soon I won’t really see you again. And that makes me sad. I’ll no longer see your face every Monday morning, wave hello to you in the hallways or eat lunch with you ever again. We won't live in the same city and sooner or later you might even forget my name.

We didn’t hang out after school but none the less you impacted me in a huge way. You supported my passions, stood up for me and made me laugh. You gave me advice on life the way you saw it and you didn’t have to but you did. I think maybe in just the smallest way, you influenced me. You made me believe that there’s lots of good people in this world that are nice just because they can be. You were real with me and that's all I can really ask for. We were never in the same friend group or got together on the weekends but you were still a good friend to me. You saw me grow up before your eyes and watched me walk into class late with Starbucks every day. I think people like you don’t get enough credit because I might not talk to you after high school but you are still so important to me. So thanks.

With that said, I truly hope that our paths cross one day in the future. You can tell me about how your brothers doing or how you regret the college you picked. Or maybe one day I’ll see you in the grocery store with a ring on your finger and I’ll be so happy you finally got what you deserved so many guys ago.

And if we ever do cross paths, I sincerely hope you became everything you wanted to be. I hope you traveled to Italy, got your dream job and found the love of your life. I hope you have beautiful children and a fluffy dog named Charlie. I hope you found success in love before wealth and I hope you depended on yourself for happiness before anything else. I hope you visited your mom in college and I hope you hugged your little sister every chance you got. She’s in high school now and you always tell her how that was the time of your life. I sincerely hope, every great quality I saw in you, was imprinted on the world.

And hey, maybe I’ll see you at the reunion and maybe just maybe you’ll remember my face. If so, I’d like to catch up, coffee?

Poetry On The Odyssey: It's a Girl

An ode to the little girl raised to be insecure.


They raise little girls to be insecure

Little girls grow to be big girls

People always ask big girls why they're so insecure

Big girls aren't quite sure

Day after day the big girl can't keep up

She's exhausted

Her soul feels worn

The big girl learns to grow hard

In a way, she's a bit stronger

People call her a bitch


What is that?

How can she let that affect her

It's simply the only way to be her

She mourns that little girl

Hoping that one day

She'll be strong
