By God, he's got a point

Aside from smelling what Barack is cooking, I really couldn't be more underwhelmed with the presidential election stuff going on right now.

Not sure why I clicked on it, but Penn Jillette has a great opinion article over at CNN right now.

Some highlights:

The president being smart, charismatic, and a great leader probably isn't the best thing.

"Everyone I talk to seems to think the president of the United States right now is stupid. The Bush presidency is stupid speeches, stupid high gas prices, stupid bad economy, stupid war on terrorism, stupid war on drugs, stupid hurricane fixing, stupid global warming, stupid war -- stupid, stupid, stupid."

"The idea, especially from the Democrats that I know, is, we just get a smarter guy in the White House, and all the problems will go away. We'll have smart speeches, smart high gas prices, smart bad economy, smart war on terrorism, smart war on drugs, smart hurricanes, smart global warming, smart war in Georgia -- smart, smart, smart."

Now Jillette is a firmly entrenched Libertarian (he quotes the Cato Institute a few times), but he's got some good points.

Although, when politics are involved maybe people are just voting for the tits.
