A more liberal-leaning sect of the Tea Party known as the Patriots for Pot are putting their money behind actor Morgan Freeman for President even though he’s not running (officially).
Dilbert “Doobie” Warner, President of the Patriots for Pot Party (PPP) located in Denver, Colorado says that the members of his party were faced with choosing a candidate to back from a list of some really heavy hitters, but in the end, Morgan Freeman was their number one choice.
When asked what qualifications Freeman has for being President in the minds of the members of his party, Doobie replied, “Well, for starters, he’s already been President, sort of. He was President Tom Beck in the movie Deep Impact, and we all think that was an awesome movie, especially when you’re high and that asteroid starts hurtling towards earth. It was so real, man!”
“But on a presidential note,” said Doobie, “Morgan Freeman has this really cool deep voice, but not creepy like James Earl Jones as Darth Vader. Freeman’s is more authoritative but considerate. We like that in a candidate.”
Asked if those were the only reasons, Doobie responded, “What? I’m sorry. I must have drifted off there for a minute thinking about the Jedi warrior fight in Star Wars. What were we just talking about?”
Morgan Freeman could not be reached for comment on this story as he was on location making a movie about the life and times of Grover Cleveland.
