Comedic wisdom from beyond the grave

I'm not a huge follower of politics and not much for mudslinging, but would like to shed some light on your choices. George Carlin will help you on your journey. I think it's only fair to allow my nominee to have a voice as well. I know he's gone, but in my mind, he'll live forever. The former "Hippy-Dippy Weatherman" still may be the best choice for president. I officially nominate George Carlin for president of the United States.

My thoughts, his responses -- you decide.

Jeb Bush. He's panicking. This is not a good qualification for a president-elect. Wait, there's hope! His family must be proud. Not only can he not keep his public relations manager in check, he's denying it in true political form. Evidently - he's qualified.

"George Washington's brother, Lawrence, was the Uncle of Our Country." -- George Carlin

Donald Trump has this idea about building a wall.

If there's anything a candidate has to understand in the race for the presidency, it's the ability to gauge how not to get the attention of the the Pope, who criticized him for his plan.

"If churches want to play the game of politics, let them pay admission like everyone else." -- George Carlin

Hillary Clinton. She seems to be a top contender. With scandals dating back to before some voting was born, Clinton has it all.

Having eight years of running the country already, I mean, being the wife of a former president, she has some presidential qualities to consider, including the chance of being indicted on that pesky email thingy everyone keeps talking about.

"Bipartisan usually means that a larger-than-usual deception is being carried out." -- George Carlin

Ted Cruz. My goodness, there's a candidate's candidate. I'm not clear on this one, he was either trying to bribe Texans by mailing fake checks to attain support for his campaign or he was spending funds he didn't have to get funds he needed, in true classic government waste style.

"Conservatives say if you don't give the rich more money, they will lose their incentive to invest. -- George Carlin

Mark Rubio. Well, if you like taxes, it seems Rubio will be to your liking. He's got a plan to spend money he doesn't have to add trillions of dollars to the national debt, and that certainly looks like top notch politics to me.

"The owners of this country know the truth: It's called the American dream because you have to be asleep to believe it." -- George Carlin

Bernie Sanders.

He's a rebel, and might just be a contender yet. With little real controversy in his political life he's evidently called on one of his opponents to create a bit of roughness to add to his credibility in the "qualified ring." He's now being accused of being disloyal to the Democratic party and I'll assume heads will roll in the Sanders campaign camp.

There you have it. I know George is no longer with us, but it sure would be nice to see him win.

"In America, anyone can become president. That’s the problem." - George Carlin
