Not that I actually want to disabuse him of his notions, but I don't think that George Clooney understands how politics works…
"I didn't live my life in the right way for politics," Clooney, who has been approached by the California Democratic Party, tells Newsweek. "I f—ed too many chicks and did too many drugs, and that’s the truth."
First of all, what? Clooney was "approached by the California Democratic Party"? Um, why? Is the state's political roster so empty that the parties have to start going through the IMDB page for Batman & Robin? Any word yet on when Alicia Silverstone will be campaigning for state senate?
Second, of all…
And telling the truth, he says, is key for any campaigner. A savvy politician "would start from the beginning by saying, 'I did it all. I drank the bong water. Now let's talk about issues,'" says Clooney. "That’s gonna be my campaign slogan: 'I drank the bong water'?"
He certainly has the class to for a life in politics.
