George Clooney’s Past Torpedoes Political Aspirations

In this week’s edition of Newsweek Magazine, George Clooney says he has done “too many drugs” and dated (Or shagged, depending on who’s telling the story…) too many beautiful women to ever run for a political office.

The Hollywood star, who has campaigned tirelessly for the people of Sudan as a United Nations ambassador, says he’s less than squeaky clean past would undoubtedly come back to haunt him if he ever threw his hat into the ring to become a public servant.

“I didn’t live my life in the right way for politics,” George explained. “You knowI fed too many chicks and did too many drugs, and that’s the truth…”

Of course, if the notorious playboy ever does make a run for it, he’s already got a pretty catchy campaign slogan: “‘I did it all. I drank the bong water. Now let’s talk about issues.”That’s gonna be my campaign slogan: ‘I drank the bong water.'”

But the political activist is serious about his work for Darfur and is working to get America’s attention.

He quipped that it might be necessary to create a reality show called — The Real Housewives of Sudan — to get the Western world to take notice.
