1. I know all of you voted. How did you vote? Early? By mail? At the polls?
oh man, early voting by mail. It was the BEST. I could take my time, that was great. Most importantly, I didn’t have to stand out in the freezing cold for 2 or 3 hours. Denver in November is cold, mister.
2. Do you have a favorite election?
any and all of the presidential elections. I am a junkie. I get what Hunter meant when he said it was better than sex.
3. Are there any great political thrillers or other political movies you recommend?
I watch them all, but they are all pretty formulaic, and so always disappointing.
4. This is pretty inside baseball, but any guesses on who will run for President next for each of the parties?
in 4 years? Chris Christie for the right, and for the Dems, Chris Christie. I just don’t have the energy to put into it. I didn’t on this election, either. After the last several elections, where I was hyper and obsessively engaged… it took too much of a toll on my psyche. I had to let it go. Plus, I didn’t have a huge beef with Romney. He did not terrify me as a candidate like Bush, or Santorum, or Gingrich did. I mean, Gingrich is a really horrible person. Just terrible by every measure. If he was in the election, I would have been super involved again.
5. So, Washington and Colorado have legalized the sale and possession of up to an ounce of marijuana. Before Bill Maher moves to Denver, where do you think the next pot ballot will be? Who will join us?
well, Oregon also had it on the ballot, and it didn’t pass there. Also, 4 years ago it was on California and Alaska’s ballot and didn’t pass there. I will tell you who needs it, how about that? The violent places in America: Philadelphia, Detroit, Washington dc. These are people who need the weed. By the way, I have to say I am very impressed with America. I knew America would finally realize that pot and being gay were ok. However, I thought it would take another generation or two.
