Penn Jillete's Obama-Marijuana-Crackdown-Is-Whack Tirade Goes Taiwanese!
On his recent Penn's Sunday School show, magician, comedian, and medical pot defender Penn Jillette blasted President Barack Obama for unleashing federal goons on California's medical marijuana industry. In his tirade, Jillette shredded Obama for trying to act cool and hip with the kids on his recent appearance on Jimmy Fallon's late-night show. He also read excerpts from Obama's 1995 memoir, Dreams of My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance, where the Prez discussed his rampant pot smoking in college and how he also "maybe" did a "little blow."
You have to admire Penn's passion for this issue. And it's a funny clip. But it's not the same thing as watching a cartoon version of a tam-wearing Obama taking hits from a bong and doing snow angels in a field of nose candy, complete with Chinese characters scrolling on the page, college kids humping in their bunk beds and stoners in tie-die T-shirts being maced by cops. There's also a couple of hot Taiwanese chicks at the end who thank you for watching. But it is we who thank you, geniuses ofNext Media Animation,
it is we who thank you.
