Shut up, royal baby haters. Monarchy is awesome. - The Washington Post
Constitutional monarchy is the best form of government that humanity has yet tried.

The U.S. would do well to adopt it (as well as parliamentary democracy, but that's a whole other argument). Jay-Z and Beyoncé are the logical choices for the first king and queen, but I'm open to suggestions.
