Bill Burr recently did a short interview with CNN where he describes why he likes Ron Paul and talks about his decent into the rabbit hole. He humorously describes his attempts at prepping and his conclusions about the Federal Reserve bank. Huffington Post somewhat apologizes for his comments by basically saying, “don’t worry, he’s not crazy.”
He makes a poignant description of Paul when he says, “We’ve got guys like Ron Paul who actually say what everybody says in bars,” when it comes to corporate and banking corruption. The belief that he will not win the election, is not a good reason to pass up a vote “for a guy like that,” he said.
Bill Burr is one of a growing group of celebrities who appreciates Ron Paul’s principles, including Vince Vaughn and Barry Manilow. Fellow cynical comedian Doug Stanhope — an outspoken Libertarian — is also endorsing Ron Paul for the 2012 election.
Bill Burr started flourishing as a comedian after making appearances on late night shows, Comedy Central, and the radio shows Bob and Tom and The Opie and Anthony Show. You may remember him as the detective in Date Night starring Tina Fey and Steve Carell.
