Russell Brand is my absolute favorite comedian right now. If only he hadn’t appeared in Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Arthur and Rock of Ages. What bond could have possibly existed between Brand and Katy Perry? I don’t respect Brand’s “don’t vote” attitude either, but the complacent attitude of Brand’s questioner, Jeremy Paxman, is far more problematic. As a Gawker commenter stated, “It’s not people like Brand who don’t vote that are part of the ‘problem’ — it’s assholes like Paxman who refuse to acknowledge the myriad of issues that our current political system has failed to solve” — or even address — “and who are completely unwilling to listen to alternatives who are part of the problem.”
