Because more Hollywood types in politics is JUST what we need right now…
Lincoln Town Car spokesperson Matthew McConaughey gave separate interviews this week in which he talked about mulling a run for office. On the Hugh Hewitt Show Tuesday, he said that “it would be up to the people more than it would me” when asked if he would consider a gubernatorial campaign.
MM also told Hugh, “Politics seems to be a broken business to me right now. And when politics redefines its purpose, I could be a hell of a lot more interested.” Pretty open-ended response, right?
He went to tell Hewitt how he would unify the country, saying:
“No matter what side of the aisle you’re on, or as I said earlier, denomination, we have broken those social contracts. I want to get behind personal values to rebind our social contracts with each other as Americans, as people again.”
Soon, would he run as a Democrat or Republican? Wellll…. he told Esquire:
“The far left doesn’t seem to want to ever be able to admit the evil that mankind can posses, and the far right doesn’t want to think past tomorrow. I want to propose meeting in the middle as a dare. I dare you to meet in the middle, instead of like, ‘Oh, that’s a place of great compromise.'”
On a scale of Al Franken to Trump, how disastrous is this idea?>
