“Why don’t you run for office?”

When Politically Incorrect host Bill Maher was asked–after being sacked by ABC in 2002–why he doesn’t run for political office he made the following observation. I agree with nearly everything in this statement and often feel ostracized for having these opinions. What, I ask, is so radical about independent thought and questioning conventional wisdom? Wouldn’t it be nice if we could have a government that didn’t have to appeal to the masses–which, by the way, are generally quite stupid and politically illiterate–and could instead make decisions based on evidence, scientific scrutiny, history, and rationality? The people who would make the best politicians, unfortunately, are too smart to run.

Folks, let me sum it up for you. I think religion is bad and drugs are good.  I think America causes cancer, longevity is less important than fun, and young people should be discouraged from voting.

I think stereotypes are true, abstinence is a perversion, Bush’s lies are worse than Clinton’s, and there is nothing sexy about being old or pregnant.

I think September 11th changed nothing, and if I had known the onset of war would add 100 points to George Bush’s IQ, I would have started one.

I think pornography stops rape, I think AIDS ribbons are stupid and flag burning makes me feel patriotic.

I think death is not the worse thing that can happen to you, I think people have too much self-esteem, and being drunk is funny.

I think children are not innocent, God doesn’t write books, and Jesus wasn’t a Republican.

I am for mad cow disease and against suing tobacco companies. I think girls hate each other, “No” doesn’t always mean “No,” you have to lie to stay married, women’s sports are boring, and the Olympics are gay.

As always, I’d love to read your comments.

  1. I agree with Bill and I agree with you. Again on almost all points – I do, however, like the Olympics, and most sports, except I hate when Little Leagues don’t keep score. Kids should learn that they can fail and lose and it’s ok. Might have done Bush some good to learn that.

    Just for once I’d like to have somebody, anybody, in either party that I felt good about voting for. I’m tired of voting for people I think suck just because their opponent sucks worse.

  2. Cool. So this guy is supposed to be controversial or something?

  3. Oh my god! You posted the radical left agenda! 🙂
