Romney and drinking Greg noted that the New York Times columnist Timothy Egan says that -- for sobriety does imply rigidity of thought.
He offers no proof to back -- up now about none whatsoever and I really believe.
That the entire story was written so they can make a play on the words tolerance you get to the end of the -- -- -- -- maybe -- Mitt Romney drink more -- experienced more tolerance writing that was the whole point he was sitting around and he came up with folks but I got -- play on words.
About that whenever I drank coming -- -- -- rigid.
-- He had Egan also -- Jimmy Carter -- noting that he and his wife from -- all the liquor from the White House which apparently drove Teddy Kennedy nuts yes.
But again he has no indicate offers no proof that Romney would do that -- It's just stupid call fit you know with what happened with their two previous call this were on vacation that week.
It's hard to tell though because every column in the New York Times is starting to sound exactly the same yes I don't even know who wrote what.
Our -- you said you're drinking enough for you and Romney just for the two of you.
-- the satellite delay coming away and that's what happened.
Yes just just for the two of -- second only do so much in the day but on the weekends more.
Are your interests of the great American.
-- thank you for not laughing at Greg's Obama and cocaine -- Well -- -- his book what's up.
It's in his book he's not doing cocaine in the White House I didn't say that you implied it that you may eventually -- -- about -- -- -- It actually -- it.
-- get real feather in the cap -- purity cocaine in the White House acreage David now wait who didn't do drugs but also we we like.
-- -- -- -- -- In the Atlantic this time during the Carter -- part -- -- -- yep that's a bucket list right there yeah Larry will be so glad you brought I was.
Larry David on there they're naive yet he brought it up on the show and I asked edited out with -- probably dead if I can out act you have.
Also revenue that -- you had about how you defend the wrongfully accused those who Harry's.
It's so funny in me and now it's my job.
-- you should have a hard time trusting anyone who hasn't had a drink you're afraid -- like show up for work on time every day or something if if it.
-- -- You judge -- has never trust anyone who's never -- -- I -- you Andy beat anyone and never done heroin.
Anyone remember the narrower Hawaii Oakley is something legal with illegal activities just because he's always this game is an excellent and -- modality of the things.
Is important to you I would say that Matt has probably the worst thing -- I since.
-- believe there but things need.
It's getting way too personal tax code for moving somebody knows somebody -- of math and obviously use it I.
That's what's going on here but there's some kind of like guy bullying will be meeting at -- after the show to discuss with.
Hot -- support -- we're talking about Ambien I'm not clear why.
Frankly he's had -- vetoing would actually be fine it's asleep bombing I think that's the problem.
Visually actually vetoing this it's frightening to me just really -- honestly bombing York -- and it's like that's not me okay.
And it doesn't seem to bother me and other people are inconvenienced and then that definitely.
Like -- a good attitude actually like that.
John -- goes on Iraq Gavin used to love -- can be honest because his career is on the decline pretty much over.
You should now he's got two movies selling right now the -- magic comedy shark proof.
And something called a brew look quo which has the tagline it started with guitars and -- with guns so you know it's gonna be good.
Well then I'm very impressed with his hubris it's rare that people in Hollywood can say conservative things -- friends of -- The secret organization that -- to meet behind closed doors.
Or celebrities can admit to be conservative and they are.
Milk at -- you don't need the secret organization up until two minute video -- -- -- all over the Internet click.
-- I don't hit it critically go to yes exactly -- he said he -- love it's around the racetrack once what kind of cars.
Porsche 93 RS America it's very fast well medium that.
Yeah I'm just confused by why you in John -- would be to force driving around -- track that's a story that perhaps require some background I was trying to get away from them.
Greg you -- love it's also nailed the host Kevin Smith how much -- sure I think it actually kind of kind of friendly banter.
-- -- -- you know what I'll take whatever I can get the cup I don't really have a strong feeling about it.
I asked -- aegs cult filler regret.
Lottery for voting -- said the fact we need a lottery to get people vote is a disgrace and it's why other countries are laughing at us.
Well Norman Ornstein he notes that in Australia voting is mandatory and you get find -- if you don't vote and he says he would love to implement that model in America.
Are you are you OK with that before that.
I think it's sad that people don't I don't think it should be required.
But you know people are.
Dying to get to that country just to stay in the American citizens.
-- -- Listed it did get a job benefits that our country gives -- our government that makes this country run all the hard working people in this country should be yeah electing these officials were gonna -- I can't imagine.
Somebody -- -- when I'm going to America so I can take part in -- -- -- death and by the way -- it wouldn't be a fine it would be attacks.
For -- is that right that's what I hear I hear I -- find it you know it works but it will be attacks ultimately took a Clint Black -- I think -- yes.
-- Gavin you said not -- reasonably that you don't want people to vote if they can't figure out -- their chance of winning the lottery is.
What do you make of -- argument that a lottery would need more moderates to vote thereby shrinking the influence of each party's base because ultimately I think that's why he wants he says that would be a good thing.
Yeah I think that most politicians want the most votes possible because they feel that they can manipulate the numbers there way.
But if I had my way.
There would be maybe 20% of the population would vote it can't be illegal.
Everybody should have the right to vote -- let's make it a little bit tricky so you have to be kind of a little bit tenacious to get that check out the box right.
We can't just have you really want every single adult American voting you're suggesting.
-- corn -- I think -- It's -- but this show happen jokes I go yes I am.
But you know what I think the I think if you've ever been out to -- Pennsylvania -- delightful corn -- procedure just put the ballot box in the middle of the cornea is.
And you have to get there to actually cast your -- exactly -- -- this problem is.
It might take you need like it's an Election Day -- -- -- -- week or something.
Yeah I would be a problem what little water breaks and -- right things like that we should have to write down your candidate actually.
You shouldn't be written there you have to know who he is and write them down and if you don't know -- you're not allowed to discover.
Do that broke into a voting machine.
Really yes way to go yeah -- -- because I didn't know how to vote for summit voted and I actually put my hand into the slots.
The thing in California why do you think democracy there right -- is great even got -- people Gavin struck him.

I -- I -- it gets here yeah.
I've -- you have -- -- in Iraq it is figure of 80% -- there were a lottery involved.
If I can quote him he says quote it is a reasonable guess they help area so I guess I didn't waste any time I know that you do you didn't.
Cat calling -- a deep down being cat called this flattering and that women who want to stop the cat calling aren't being cat called and they're upset about -- -- -- -- Yeah first of -- shame on you for.
I agree I -- you.
Yes that was a what an awful thing to say yeah nobody expects a defense -- sign up you sure are awful people you know an -- sandwich right -- -- -- -- -- -- I think it's having please Israelis at risk.
-- kept calling there is a history in Brooklyn.
Where this isn't seen as horrible harassment and it actually has a background that I think a lot of rich liberals don't know about.
And that's all trying to think my -- -- the conservative shot big ticket -- Brooklyn.
-- -- the -- levels are not aware of this country also had a history of doing other things that we don't do anymore you know.
To talk to construction workers.
-- as a matter of fact I do I do that every day.
He dresses like what a great -- and actually construction worker why I had on the break -- -- where I'm gonna be doing my best.
