George Clooney for President!
People who vehemently deny being crazy are the craziest, just like people who say they never do bad things actually do the worst things, and anyone who tells the truth while in politics is a saint. Which means that Mr. President of Handsomeness George Clooney's admission that he'll never run for political office because he "f---ed too many chicks and did too many drugs, and that's the truth," is precisely why he would be the perfect politician. Truth! This could fix everything that's wrong with society! Plus, imagine the photo ops!
Alas, despite his demonstrated ability to cuddle adorable pug-babies while looking dashing in a white tee, Clooney says he'll continue his political activism, you know, like helping Sudan, and helping "focus news media where they have abdicated their responsibility" [ouch] instead of spending his time running for some office or another.
Doubly alas, his campaign slogan would apparently have been "I drank the bong water," which is way better than "Tippecanoe and Tyler too."
[Seriously, don't drink the bong water. It tastes bad. Also, we don't really want George Clooney to run for President. That job should be reserved for Oprah.]
