George Clooney’s Campaign Slogan Would Be ‘I Drank the Bong Water’

George Clooney's hand in current events combined with his comforting demeanor would make him a solid candidate for public office, but he says his skeletons in the closet will probably prevent that from happening: "I didn't live my life in the right way for politics," Clooney, who has been approached by the California Democratic Party, admitted to Newsweek, in a story about his work in Sudan. "I fucked too many chicks and did too many drugs, and that’s the truth." But if he ever did run, he'd be up front about all the fun he's had. "A savvy politician would start from the beginning by saying, '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.'"
