Kal Penn Asks For The Young Vote At The DNC!

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayPolitikBarack Obama

Who needs pants? Not young voters!

During his energetic speech at the Democratic National Convention, Kal Penn urged young voters to get to the polls this November to support President Barack Obama. Using humor to engage the hearts and minds (not to mention, attention span) of viewers, the Harold & Kumar star said:

"I ask all of you young people to join me. You don't even have to put pants on. Go to Commit.BarackObama.com and register right there! And you know what? The oldies out there — you can do it too! Let's keep fighting for a president who have never stopped fighting for us."

Amidst encouraging America's youth to step up this election, the actor-turned-civil servant also praised the president for taking out the man responsible for 9/11 and his "evolved" stance on same-sex marriage by saying:

"I've worked on a lot of fun movies, but my favorite job was having a boss who gave the order to take out Bin Laden and who's cool with all of us getting gay married, so thank you invisible man in the chair for that!"

LOLz!

Sorry Clint, but SOMEONE had to say it!

    im totally going to listen to an actor when deciding who to vote for, thanks Kal Penn for going out there and begging for votes, doesn't seem desperate at all

    Who the fuck cares what Cal Penn thinks.

    Re: lawyered – While I agree that actors are not the people to listen to in elections, Kal Penn left acting to work in politics - so he is not just an actor.

    The Obozo speech moved indoors due to " weather", eventhough the weatherman predicts perfect conditions!
    -
    I don't understand.
    What's going to happen to the 73,000 rabid fans planning on attending for weeks in advance, going to do when only 20,000 can fit in the new venue?
    -
    Looks like Obozo threw 53,000 fans under the bus or they knew that an empty stadium wouldn't look very energizing.

    Chickens coming home to roost?

    If Obozo was White, he would have been primaried by other Dems or been impeached by now.
    -
    There are no jobs for young people and I hope they have learned the hard way, one big ass fact.
    -
    If you demonize successful large and small businesses, tie them up with onerous regulations and taxes, then redistribute their money to 49% of the moochers, there will be no jobs for anyone.

    VOTE FOR THE AMERICAN - '12

    If Obozo and Michelle really cared about you, how can they leave his half-brother living in squalor in a hut in Kenya?

    This is how they treat their own!

    Perez you can post all the crap you want about your beloved DNC but we are not buying into it. We are the ones footing the bill for this moron that you are worshipping. We didn't like him before and we don't like him now. He has has ran up 6 TRILLION more in our debt and 47 MILLION people are on food stamps and 8.3% are unemployed and 50% don't pay taxes! That leaves the rest of us to foot the bill. WE ARE DONE! Time for Obama and all Michelle's family members living in the White House to start packing!

    We need a REAL leader and not one is is constantly campaigning, vacationing, golfing or is on a talk show.

    Can't believe how stupid the average american is. The Republicans ran this country into the ground for 8 years. Doesn't it follow that it's going to take longer than 4 years to fix this mess? Unfortunately the average American is stupid and can't remember what they had for breakfast, let alone what happened when the Republicans were in charge. By the way, where is Romney's tax returns? Did he misplace them? Did he even pay taxes? Why is he hiding them? Why??? If it's not so bad then release them. Why let it become such an issue?

    Re: educated – Agreed. Romney won't release his finances because keeping million and millions of dollars off shore is not exactly patriotic. Also, I agree about it taking longer than 4 years to fix things, but one of the biggest hurdles has been in congress - the Republicans have made it their mandate to destroy Obama - even at the expense of the country.

    Re: educatedRe: rosebud99 – Very well said!

    Re: lawyered – You're right, you definitely shouldn't listen to an actor tell you who to vote for, Americans just like to vote for actors (Ronald Reagan, Arnold Schwarzenegger) who have no idea what they're doing and run the country or state, as the case may be, into the ground.

    Re: LiberalsMakeMeSick – It is closer to 11-12% in California, I have been out of work since Feb. 2010. Not wastihg my vote in him again, fooled me once.

    Sooooo… If Obama supports same sex marriage so much what has he changed thus far for gay people? I want to vote for someone who has made a positive difference with his position like the best schools in the country. We have proved a black man or half black man can be president but what has he done? We as americans need to pay attention to the real facts instead of listening to celebs. Sorry Perez but Clint was right Obama works for us and he is not doing his job. Last time I checked there is no affirmitive action in the white house its time for change.
