George Clooney the ‘Anti-Genocide Paparazzi’?

George Clooney doesn’t see himself as a possible Democratic candidate, but calls himself the “anti-genocide paprazzi” because of his work in Sudan.

As a Hollywood A-lister involved in world issues, Clooney, 49, has been thought of as the next Democratic candidate, but says he’s done too many questionable things in his past to take public office.

Unlike some politicians, Clooney sees honesty as the best policy and he’s happily honest about his life.

Clooney tells Newsweek, “I didn’t live my life in the right way for politics, you know. I [expletive] too many chicks and did too many drugs, and that’s the truth.”

Clooney, however, does think that politicians should be truthful about their past indiscretions before they begin governing.

Clooney suggests a politician should “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.’ ”

Clooney, who plays a politician in The Ides of March, prefers to focus his celebrity power on promoting awareness around global issues, like the war in Sudan.

Using his own funds, Clooney had a satellite implemented that monitors military movements in an unstable area of Sudan, where he’s spent some of his time in the past few years.

Clooney continues, “I’m not tied to the U.N. or the U.S. government, and so I don’t have the same constraints. I’m a guy with a camera from 480 miles up. I’m the anti-genocide paparazzi.”

Clooney – dreamy and philanthropic. Let’s just say if I were American and Clooney was running for office, he’d certainly have my vote.

A committed soap opera freak--err, fan, Rolla Bahsous was thrilled to begin her professional writing career writing about everything soaps. But her love for television did not stop at daytime! Rolla is excited to be using her guilty pleasure, following celebrity gossip, at Rolla's had a few encounters with her favorite celebs, including a fingertip brush and a "Take care, sweetheart" from Michael Buble, as well as a flying kiss from Nick Carter - in both incidents Rolla forgot how to breathe. Rolla's University of Toronto degree in communications, political science, and theater is evidence of her diverse interests. When she is not writing, Rolla enjoys her obsession with fairies, coffee shops, and working out, (while watching television, of course!).
