Justin Bieber for President

Maybe we should just let the children run the country, at least until the recession is over. They appear to be the only people not bubbling over with anger, anxiety and frustration.

I say Justin Bieber for president. I know he was born in Canada, but since Republicans want to tinker with the Constitution anyway, why not? Besides, I’m not sure many would notice the difference. Beiber knows how to draw a crowd, get them all excited and then break their hearts. For vice president, maybe they could find a booster seat for Zahara Jolie-Pitt. She probably has about as much message discipline as Joe Biden.
Besides, we need some African-birth-certificate drama for continuity.

And they say they don't want to ruin the country? What's next? Russians or Iranians or Venezuelans for president? Why can't we just stick with Americans? Not exotic or organic enough?

It was actually show in a study in the 90's that Canadians as a whole possess superior political savvy, empathy, competence, and intellect when compared to Americans, about 18%; better on average (well beyond statistical error).

I've been around a number of years, but with each passing group of youngsters, it seems like their tastes in music/stars/etc. gets worse -- and in the case of Bieber, much worse. I was downtown a couple of nights ago and there was a Justin Bieber concert and I saw older ladies singing along to it as they took their kids. I mean, WTF -- Justin Bieber?!?! He looks like an 8 year-old dork. These kids nowadays!

Oh, and stay off my lawn!

This is about the third time this guy's name has come up in here (P&N) within the last week. So I finally decided to google him to see who he was. Seems to be some sort of teen idol. Kind of reaffirmed my assumption we have a lot of high schoolers and or university students with high school mentalities posting in here.

Truly he epitomizes everything, I do mean everything, that is wrong with the human race.

Have you seen/heard the Jonas Brothers? I was flipping channels on TV and accidentally 'experienced' them. They are so bad I thought they were a parody band. Horrible. Just horrible.

I remember back when I was a kid, I thought some of the girl's tastes in musicians were bad. But for Christ's sake, people like Leif Garrett and Menudo are like Elvis and the Beatles compared to these idiots nowadays!

Yeah, no kidding. How do these no-talent freaks make it big?

What male can even begin to understand the thought process of preteen/teen girls.
Best leave that to mother, and when they start in on you.. just smile and nod in the right places.

Nah, they always sucked. I'll do you a favor by taking you back to the past to show you shitty music that sucks ass.

New Kids On The Block - 1988 - The Right Stuff
Backstreet Boys - 1998 - I Want It That Way
Justin Bieber - 2009 - Baby

Ok you're right, Justin Bieber sucks. I actually kinda liked NKOTB and Backstreet Boys (although I could never admit this in real life). Lance Bass is such a cutie; we should run off to Massachusetts together.
edit: I just checked wiki and it says he's part of N'Sync. My bad. They all sound the same.

Now that we have all deemed the Canadian unfit for president, we should carry on to tar and feather the author for even suggesting this atrocity. A Canadian as president? Did the author forget that we cleansed ourselves of the British monarchy back in the revolutionary war? To have a Canadian be the leader would amount to recolonization of the US by the Queen,

It is called marketing. There is little art left in most music in the US. It is just profiteering. And yes, it is pathetic. However, it does represent the culture very accurately.

p.s. you guys are forgetting about Lady Gaga

Oh fuck. He might bring a bunch of British bullshit with him such as a somewhat working democracy, public healthcare, and better public school system! The horrors. Hacp might actually learn something!


I don't mean to pick on you, but your mentality is everything that's wrong with the US. I think the official term for it is "American Exceptionalism". Basically it comes down to the idea that you are better than everyone else and therefore should not listen to anyone else. If a country like France creates a great health care system, you'll refuse to try it simply because it's France. If Amsterdam legalizes marijuana and it actually seems to work, you'll dismiss that because Americans are "different" in a way that cannot be explained.

Is everybody else kind of just sitting there, wondering if this guy is serious?
Going on his previous posts he could be.

A democracy is exactly what we don't want. We are a republic. Democracy is mob rule. Akin to socialism and communism.

Contrary to what this thread title implies, NYT liberals to not have the power to nominate anyone for President. To get the democratic "nomination", any prospective candidate has to win enough primaries.

Now that the panic of 8/14 is over, yo'all should feel free to go back to your other delusions.

To the OP

Reread the article, only imagine its George Carlin writing it.
Maybe that will help.
The picture of the black fellow at the beginning probably messed you up

So instead of doing what the majority of people want, you want the country to be run by a talking head who represents the richest 1% of people?
