Would Woody Allen cast Michelle Obama as Fielding Mellish's girlfriend?

Phil Boehmke
Last year Woody Allen said Barack Obama was "brilliant" and opined that "it would be good...if he could be dictator for a few years."  Now the extreme leftist actor/director has developed a crush on Michelle Obama and according to The Internet Movie Data Base:
 
Woody Allen has confessed he'd love to cast American First Lady Michelle Obama in his next movie - if he can write the perfect role for her...He tells British TV show Daybreak, "If I was in a room with Michelle Obama and I thought she was right for a part, I wouldn't hesitate to ask her."
 
I couldn't help but think that a remake of "Bananas" could be just the ticket for Woody and Michelle.  The 1971 comedy tells the story of Fielding Mellish, an inept pseudo-intellectual twit who meets a radical college student and falls in love.  In his pathetic and failed attempt to win the heart of his radical girlfriend Fielding gets involved in a plot to overthrow a Latin American dictator.  Through a bizarre series of events the bungling Mellish becomes president of the small nation.  His inept bungling and attempt to raise money in the United States eventually land him in hot water leading to his trial for treason.
 
With some re-writing to bring the story up to date Fielding Mellish could be the unsuspecting puppet of powerful leftists and hedge-fund managers and rise to become President of The United States, but this time Fielding gets the girl.  "The Front" and his wife could be "Small Time Crooks" who emerge from the "Shadows and Fog," commit a series of "Crimes and Misdemeanors" as they "Take the Money and Run."
 
One small bit of advice to Mr. Allen, leave the newsstand scene out of the remake, that prophetic little gem might not go over very well given your strange personal life.
