After an epic rant about President Obama’s drug policies, magician Penn Jillette has named his favorite candidate for 2012.
Not surprisingly, it’s a pro-pot, libertarian White House hopeful.
“I think Gary Johnson is pretty good,” Jillette told Fox’s Sean Hannity on Wednesday, noting the former New Mexico governor’s “strong theory of government.” Last week, Jillette tweeted, “I love Gary Johnson. He seems pretty perfect.”
But he’s “not gonna win,” Hannity contested. “So isn’t that a half a vote for Obama?”
“I believe that voting for the lesser of two evils in game theory will always leads to more evil,” Jillette replied. “…If you actually believe that Romney is a fabulous candidate, then you should vote for him, I don’t. Most of the stuff I disagree with Obama on I also disagree with Romney on.”
