You can be skeptical and friendly at the same time.

Will the presidential terms change in the future? Otherwise, why doesn’t the robo-president serve its full term? (Eyeing its atheist successor with suspicious eyes.)
Perhaps the robot resigned… because of a sex scandal with a human? or because the job was really frustrating, dealing with so many inefficient humans to get anything done?
While studying past politicians to improve its performance, robo-president accidentally assimilated Sarah Palin’s personality and resigned to pursue a career in reality TV.
It looks like the first openly gay will also be the first medical doctor. That’s nice.
The jacket certainly does make him look like some sort of scientist.
Or a headwaiter.
I thought it looked like Romney – and since he’s an android, he’s also be the first robot.
Hmm… gay robots; what will they think of next?
Only after Labor Day.
The picture was taken at Fire Island, just BEFORE Labor Day.
So the robot believes in God? Who botched that progamming?
Of course robots believe in god:: http://www.comedycentral.com/video-clips/97q1pz/futurama-robotology
Well the robot believes it has a creator that gave it a purpose. Which in this case is true.
Depending on how you define it we’ve already had the first openly non-straight president. James Buchanan was well known to the Washington circle at least to not be straight. He told people when he “went wooing to several gentlemen”. The public weren’t quite as close to the president’s personal life as now, but the press had some comment on the fact.
Wow, I didn’t know that. That’s awesome. Thanks for sharing.
It’s controversial. From my reading of the material, it seems likely he was gay, on the other hand, many scholars have suggested that at the time that language and the way he used it may not have meant he was talking about a gay relationship at all.
So the first Robot will be in 2096 and the first atheist in 2098. A two year difference.
Did the robot resign, leaving his atheist vice-prez to take over? was he assassinated? did he die of a robo-virus?
Inquiring minds want to know!
So, what happened in the 900 years between First Atheist and First Boring White guy in 1k years? Two hundred and fifty atheist presidents, supported by a 99.999% atheist Congress, ushered in an unprecedented era of peace, progress, enlightenment, and prosperity?
Wasn’t there supposed to be a thousand years of heaven on earth after Jesus came back?
The idea of the first atheist president being Jesus amuses me for vague reasons.
Just saw everything I was going to say on MSNBC…..Jesus was the teacher of empathy, kindness, caring…..feed the poor, heal the sick, visit the sick….love thy neighbor as thyself, golden rule…..easy as pie even from an aethist
“Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth… but a sword.” – Jesus.
He meant to say butter knife. The real quote is “Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth… but a butter knife to spread my creamy love.” I know it doesn’t make sense. But Jesus was high most of the time.
Since the Golden Rule was conceived of by secular and religious philosophies well over 2000 years ago, it would be more appropriate to say that it’s easy as pie for even a Christian to follow.
I’m trying in 2020.
No, this is incorrect: Richard Nixon’s preserved head in a jar will be president in 2008.
Maybe there should be a 3 in there somewhere.
Oops… thanks for catching that! And here I was complaining about historical accuracy…
Does President Robot pray to Robot Jesus?
2098 won’t even be an election year. He would even have been elected. The robot (elected in 2096) will have had to have died in office and the atheist would have been the VP.
