In a recent interview with The Courier-Journal, scathing comedian Bill Maher waxes poetic about his favorite topic: American politics.

When asked how long it will be before America has an atheist President, the former Politically Incorrect host replied “Oh, probably not in my lifetime. I was thinking the other day, I don’t think we could even have a vegetarian president. Not that I’m a strict vegetarian. But in the mindset of mid-America, I don’t think they would vote for a vegetarian. I think they would vote for a gay president before they would vote for a vegetarian president. They just see it as something so exotic and foreign and un-American.”

Now that’s some plant-based food for thought.

What do you think? Is Maher right? (Was that the reason Dennis Kucinich never made it very far?)
