Brad Pitt eyes 2016 presidential bid?

Hollywoodnews.com: Sunday, crazy Sunday.
Word is being splashed around the net now that Brad Pitt wants to make a 2016 bid for the White House with Angelina Jolie at his side.

2016 is a ways off and there’s plenty of Best Actor Oscar films for him to make another bid on until then. So don’t hold your breath.

“There’s not much left for him to do in Hollywood,” a source close to Pitt says.

“Brad feels there’s a lot more for him to do in politics, especially considering the rough years the world has experienced recently,” the source continued to tell Showbiz Spy.

“Brad will run for Senate and if all goes well will mount a bid to become President in 2016.”

But what’s on the top of Pitt’s agenda? Abortion rights? Elimination of capital punishment? Bombing Iran? Nope. Legalizing marijuana, man.

“He’s obsessed with legalizin pot,” the source said. “He believes it would be the biggest moneymaker since the Internet.”

And Jolie has no problems with setting her sights on D.C. She is already quite involved in her humanitarian work as an U.N. ambassador.

“She is passionate about people’s rights, war and justice and thinks she can get more hands-on and make even more of a difference by getting into politics. She admires President Barack Obama and thinks she could make a big difference too if she were in his position.”

    The legalisation issue will win millions of votes for sure, but with Angie by his side he will lose them right back again. A man-pinching woman is no role model for young girls period.

    Don’t worry folks. This will NEVER happen. Nobody is going to vote for the pothead. He will never make it to even mayor of smalltown, USA. And, Jolie HATES Obama. We all know she is a strong Republican.

    I wouldn’t vote for him, and I would especially not want Angelina “I cut myself and the government still let me adopt children” Jolie in the White House.
    This must be some kind of joke or hoax!!
    Actually, I’m rooting for a change in the Constitution that will allow Schwarzenegger to run for Prez! I would totally vote for that guy!

    I can see Brad in this role especially with Anglina by his side. They at least have a global view of the world and not simply focus on domestic bandages. All presidents are loved or hated, for those whose hatred is blind and ignorant, I’m wondering how Obama ever got past your parocial, redneck attitudes. Brad Pitt, President of the United States of America, why not? Angelina would be the most charismatic, intelligent, beautiful and genuinaly caring first lady. And their family, from around the world, no better representatives for a country that values diversity and tolernace. I’m just not seeing much tolerance from ya’lll.
