Presidential Candidates and Drug Use

The question of past drug use has come up in the campaign of Barack Hussein Tojo Mussolini Castro Obama (I hope I got that right). First of all, I think a Presidential candidate’s past drug use should be a non-issue. I’ve stated this before when the candidate in question was a Republican (George Dubya Bush) and I’ll state it again when it’s a Democrat. I don’t care if a candidate tried drugs back in the day. It would concern me if he was using WHILE he was running for office, but that past stuff means nothing to me, just like it means nothing if he’s into banging random hoochies.

Some people say the issue is relevant because it reveals something about a candidate’s character, that it is evidence of the person’s willingness to break laws. I counter that lawbreaking should be judged by the damage that is done. You blow smoke or do a few lines in your younger years, theoretically you’ve caused harm by contributing money to the source of an ongoing law enforcement problem in this country, but even then you’re just a few snowflakes in a blizzard. If your candidate was SLINGING drugs back in his day I would weigh that more heavily. But casual drug use does not a villian make.

If I were running for office and I was asked if I had ever gone on the Jenny Jones show for having sex with my fiancee’s sister I would say “That’s irrevelevant and I won’t dignify that with an answer.” What I didn‘t like about Bill Clinton’s campaign in ’92 was the fact that when he was asked about smoking weed in college he claimed he tried it but he didn’t inhale. THAT answer was incredibly stupid and I should have voted against him just for that.

His explanation damaged the credibility of reality itself and what makes it worse is the fact that it didn’t (in my mind) even mitigate the damage of trying drugs in the first place. Saying you smoked and didn’t inhale is like saying you sucked but didn’t swallow. HOW IS THAT ANY BETTER?? That just shows something about your character which is that you don’t finish things you start and all the weedheads should have been mad over the wasted hit. In retrospect the “I didn’t have sexual relations with that woman” claim was to be expected. Wishy doesn’t just spontaneously wash away.

There is one thing I’m concerned about regarding Obama’s candidacy and that is the fact that he said that we should nationalize healthcare. That is one idea I DON’T like. The war will come and go but the creation of another entitlement is like cooking meth, you’re creating a monster that will never go away. There are some people in this country who simply do not have health insurance and that’s the way I want it to stay, it’s funny to me. What we DON’T need is some hippy pothead giving away other people’s money. Down with Obama!

  1. I’m going to run for president…..in 2010

  2. mexi says:

    I have concerns about your character. I heard you went to a strip club in Flint where this chick shoved a 40 up her watchacall.

  3. Phelps says:

    Also, your name sounds a lot like UNLV Classic’s, and I think that will weigh against you.

  4. mexi says:

    Teh Mexigogue has come out against any plans to use children for firewood. Where does Guy in a UNLV Jacket stand on this issue? He doesn’t. He has remained silent on the plan.

    Guy in a UNLV Jacket is a moth in the moral fiber of America.

    *Paid for by the friends of teh Mexigogue campaign.

  5. Many members of Congress are on drugs…anti-depressant cocktails and such, not to mention outright cocaine…and alcohol.

    But what scares me is that people still follow the herd. This means people play the liberal/ conservative, left/right game just like the mainstream media want them to.

    There is not a peso’s difference between the Dumbocrats and the Repulsicans. They are all controlled by the Council on Foreign Relations and the Bilderbergers; organizations that Sin Vanity and Bush Bimbow claim do not exist. (So it must be true, right?)

  6. Phelps says:

    You forgot the Trilaterals and the Bohemian Grovers.

  7. mexi says:

    I bet whoever is in charge of these global conspiracies gets pissed off because Citizen Quasar keeps finding out about them. They should really work harder on covering up.

  8. Since you are against using children for firewood how do you propose poor people heat there houses?

  9. mexi says:

    I’m not actually against the idea. It’s just my official stand until the election is over.

  10. Phelps says:

    I think that we should burn Mexicans for heat. I mean, illegal immigrants. Cuz I’m not racist.

  11. mexicano says:

    Uh oh. El helpo!

  12. Nice Rack says:

    I hate to say this, but I don’t think Obama stands a chance of getting elected. I think (and I could very well be wrong) that his name (which is reminiscent of Osama) will cause him harm. I believe, with a war going on, that America will elect a president that has a more “American” name, and what they believe to be more “American” qualities. Each candidate’s arguments will be factors, but I think his name alone brings out a negative vibe. Especially in all voters over 60 (like my uncle) who are racist (like my uncle again).

  13. mexi says:

    If he pronounced Obama like AlaBAMA they’ll think he’s a college football player and they’ll vote for him cuz they’ll think he’s speedy.

  14. Nice Rack says:

    That might work for him, but most women don’t like speedy guys so he won’t get their votes.

  15. Phelps said, “You forgot the Trilaterals and the Bohemian Grovers.”

    Phelps: They are all the same bunch of guys. They tell us what their intentions are but people like you never listen to them or research what is really going on in the world.

    It’s like this:

    In the last Presidential elections, out of 290,000,000 million Americans, we could not even get TWO candidates who were not members of Skull and Bones.

  16. Phelps says:

    You know, traveling all the time isn’t so bad when you are non-exempt and you have an expense account that you really have to run buck-wild on before someone calls you on it.

    I say that as I pass on adding a $35 lobster tail to my steak not because of the cost, but because I’m not that hungry. (Plus there is supposed to be a bar around the corner with a $14 lobster. Which is where I may go after my steak if it is to cold to walk back.)

  17. Phelps says:

    Also, I know it is my kind of place when the vegetable is an onion ring. The only more appropriate vegetable for a steak is a jalepeno (or a grilled serrano).

    And we had lots of candidates that weren’t s&b. They couldn’t win the primaries.

  18. Phelps says:

    Okay, I don’t know when this turned into liveblogging on some else’s blog, but it is what it is. This place deserves an honorable mention. I’m at the Cleveland Chophouse and Brewery, and I don’t know what they are doing, but I am FUCKED UP on a pint and a half. Like, numb fingers and tingly legs fucked up. Plus they put cornbread on the table. To quote Chris Rock: cornbread — aint nuthin wrong with THAT.”.

    It might just be fatigue and that I have only had one drink since Fri, but I am one messed up dude with the drunk bloggies. But if I had to be alone anyplace in the world, this place ranks up there.

    I was thinking today that when I build my house/compound/fortress, I am going to have a place like this in it. Also, I am going to have a bunch of old encyclopedias. I love old encyclopedias. They are like little time capsules. I love to read them and see all the stuff that seems wrong or just plain silly now, and all the stuff that is really old news.

    But I’m just rambling now.

  19. Phelps says:

    I love that geico airport caveman commercial. I love that it doesn’t work without the other commercials. But is still great. Lus, the racketball racket makes it.

    I started to make fun of someone ordering a pomegranite martini, but then I saw that it was a chick at the end of the bar. She is the same one who snorted when she was laughing earlier, which makes her A-#1 in my book.

  20. Have you been drinking, Phelps?

  21. Phelps says:

    I just realized I am the only guy in the whole place with long hair. There’s like 30 other guys in here, and all have clipper cuts (like crew cuts) except two guys, who both have their hair cut really short.

    Which is weird, because I’m getting hit on left and right by chicks out here. Midwest guys: the secret is let you hair grow and put a twang in your voice. Seriously.

  22. Phelps says:

    Okau, what kinD of people come to chophouse ON A DATE and then both order burgers and fries? I mean, how much more whitebread can you get?

  23. Phelps says:

    My waitress totally looks like a thick version of the mom from !ack to the Future 1955 version. Why do these chicks end up being waitresses at classy joints?

    P.s. She’s totally doable.

  24. Phelps says:

    I threw up a little on the way back to the hotel (like one mouthfull). I think a liTtle bit got in my hair because I didn’t have some guy who wants to fuck me to hold my hair back. Chicks have it sooooo easy.

  25. Mexigogue says:

    Aw man. You’re having all the fun and I’m over here playing America’s Army. DAmmit!

  26. Phelps says:

    I wish I was playing BC. I bet my whole guild is 70 and I’m still a 63 nub. I suck.

  27. Mexigogue says:

    Not to worry, I’m gonna go drink and shoot pool in about an hour. I’ll try to throw up a mouthful so I know I’m all caught up.

  28. Phelps is probably drunk off his ass by now. Maybe he got laid. I doubt it though. He’s probably too drunk.

  29. Yeah. I knew that Phelps would eventually bare his soul. He is such a lonely man. He just won’t admit it. Or did he just do that?

  30. Phelps says:

    I’m usually not lacking for people around. I was just the last one left of our group in a strange town. My tribe is pretty big.

    And I’m pretty sure they already think Obama is speedy. His name has nothing to do with it. Hillary? She’s antispeedy.

  31. Phelps says:

    Oh, and I didn’t get laid. I went back to my room and slept like a baby that already had 35 hours on Tuesday and a belly full of stout and beef. (Minus one mouthfull of desert.)

  32. R says:

    Bahahahahahaha! 10/10 Phelps.

  33. Detroit says:

    Hey didn’t DUBYA get caught with a Kilo in his car? That is something very different. I truly believe the question that should be asked is……………………. Do you promise not to fuck employee while in office? That even means a fat ass intern that likes to suck Cock!

    I will only vote for the person that answers that last question NO! Now fuck off and get me a brew!
