Damaged politicians (4) Wed, Mar 12, 2008
It seems like we're always looking for political candidates who have a perfect moral record.  Never did drugs, never got arrested, never killed a puppy.  I think this is stupid.  In the event we actually find a candidate who is morally impeccable, it just means they're a good liar.  They're good at covering things up.  Is that who we want running our country?  I'd rather have some dude that said, "Heck yeah I snorted coke.  It was great.  But that was 30 years ago and I wouldn't do it again because it can easily destroy your whole life and wind up killing you."  I'd rather have an honest candidate than some fence-sitter who "smoked pot but didn't inhale".  Why smoke pot at all if you don't inhale?  It's like drinking without swallowing. #politics

I'm with you completely.  Back when Clinton got into office I was telling people he was either a bad liar or too dumb to do drugs.

Back when Clinton was in office, I was 10.  Just thought I'd throw that in there.

Ahhhh yes....throw it out there while you can my friend.  Soon you have to go find groups that will roll their eyes when you say such things.  :-)

This guy's got my vote: "Gov. David Paterson, who took over the state's top job Monday after Eliot Spitzer resigned amid a prostitution scandal, has admitted he and his wife Michelle had affairs during a rough patch in their marriage several years ago, a newspaper reported." (Washington Post)

Not to mention the fact that he's blind! Talk about going against the grain...get on with your bad self David Paterson!
