Johnson, Gary

Gary Johnson’s recent nomination as the Libertarian Party’s candidate for president reminded me of his appearance on Real Time with Bill Maher a few months ago.

Maher was talking to his three guests, including Johnson, about an incident on an airliner involving Mitt Romney. The man sitting in front of Romney was slow in following the instruction to put his seatback in the full and upright position before takeoff, and he objected to Romney’s nagging him about it. An argument ensued, and the man was led off the plane.

Maher  made the point that the man was an African American and asked his guests if the Mormon Church’s historical refusal to admit blacks could have been a factor in the incident.  One guest said that Maher had an interesting point.  An African American woman, a Republican, said it was a ridiculous idea.  Maher finally turned to Gary Johnson.  Johnson thought for a minute and then said, “You know, I’ve never understood why we have to put our seatbacks up before takeoff.”
Ex-New Mexico governor and Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson received .99 percent of the national popular vote in the 2012 presidential election. Santa Fe County gave him 3.3 %, slightly less than the New Mexico count of 3.5%
