Ben Affleck? what has he ever done to even think he has a career in politics? Wasn't he one of the first of many to be married to J-Lo?

We could use another actor in politics.
They're good at it.

Remember Reagan? He acted his way through
eight years. The old phony should have had
an Oscar.

Wise choice, Ben. Actors may be phonies, but they look decent and well-adjusted compared to politicians.

Big Ben has decided not to run? Shoot, that means that Al FrenkenBerry will remain the stupidest person in the U.S. Senate.
Not as long as McConnell continues to soil Senate floors, among others.

In fact, Franken's quite intelligent. He does NOT have that in common with you.

Ronnie the Cracked Actor was the biggest phony in the modern history of American politics. It was ALL an act, except the Alzheimer's.
