Actor Margot Kidder became a U.S. citizen Wednesday to avoid possible deportation to her native Canada when she begins protesting the war in Iraq, she said.
Kidder, best known for playing Lois Lane in the 1978 movie Superman and three sequels, was among 19 people who became citizens during a naturalization ceremony in Butte federal court.
"It means I can vote against anyone and everyone in elected office that in any way supported the Bush administration," said Kidder, 56, who has lived in the United States for 34 years and has a home in Livingston, Mont.
Margot must have been hiding behind the woodpile when she came up with this idea. The only reason she has to fear being deported would be if she'd fraudulently obtained citizenship for the purpose of committing criminal acts; protesting the Iraq war isn't one of them.
But what an inflated sense of importance she has! As if the U.S. government gave a damn about some washed-up actress' foreign policy opinions.
