The Mayer Debate: Ron Paul or RuPaul?

10/16/2007 1:42 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

John Mayer spent the night before his 30th birthday having dinner with a few friends and arguing about the Constitution, presidential hopeful Ron Paul and drag queen RuPaul. Just your typical birthday conversation.

The pop star -- without his new woman, Minka Kelly -- celebrated with friends Sherrod Small (his "Chocolate Rain" co-star), comedian Jeffrey Ross, and "Live Free or Die Hard" star/Drew Barrymore's rumored new beau, Justin Long.

In typical Mayer fashion, he launched into a fake tirade about the merits of Ron Paul and how he avidly reads the Constitution. Somehow, Condoleezza Rice comes into the chat, and a homeless man calls him "John Paul."

You never know what's going to go down when John Mayer is around.

Dom for Ron    

A "fake tirade"? Seems to me like John is genuinely stoked about him.

Now let's get HIM to write a song for the Paul campaign!!

First of all HaterOne, Black people (from Africa) enslaved their own first (in Africa) then sold their slaves... White people aren't the problem, humans are.

About Ron Paul: I don't know anyone who wouldn't like to pay less taxes (on their labor) and have more personal freedom (for the individual, not classes of people, races...etc.). Ron Paul is not a nut-job, wacko, isolationist; he is a truth-seeker and ray of light for our quickly crumbling country.

If you wonder what it will be like to be in a massive recession... just imagine all of you who only get your news from TMZ et al., you won't be able to buy any of those "hot" designer clothes and drink fancy drinks at swanky hotels. You'll be waiting in line for a gallon of milk or loaf of bread.

Bet they had a lot of fun coming up with that little charade. Anyone who thinks that wasn't staged is a sucker. Happy birthday, John.

John Mayer is such a fake intellectual douche. He pretends to know a lot about many subjects, but his mind is about as deep as the kitchen sink. He just likes to be seen as intellectual, but he'd rather not put in the work it takes to be one for real.

He dates bimbos so he can feel smarter than them.

Self absorbed, pretentious douchenozzle.

If any of you people really took the time to get informed or to even find out what you're commenting on, you would all agree that it is a great thing that people are so driven to speak about Ron Paul... I encourage anyone who is making fun to check him out to see what he is about and I know that your opinion would change. Google Ron Paul!! He is the ONLY person running for president that actually wants to represent the people. He has never voted to raise taxes. He has never voted for an unbalanced budget. He has never voted for a federal restriction on gun ownership. He has never voted to raise congressional pay. He has never taken a government-paid junket. He has never voted to increase the power of the executive branch. He voted against the Patriot Act. He voted against regulating the Internet. He voted against the Iraq war. He does not participate in the lucrative congressional pension program. He returns a portion of his annual congressional office budget to the U.S. treasury every year. This is the man I want leading my counrty!

Go Ron Paul!

If Ron Paul appeals to "crazy people," I guess that includes people who think the President should follow the constitution and that people are intelligent enough to make decisions for themselves without the government butting in at every chance. Yea, sounds crazy to me... if you're sick of politicians' bs soundbytes, listen to Ron Paul.

Mayer is so into his Foundations. Constitutionally speaking makeup never looks good on guys. Dr No John Mayer you are more into RuPaul.Had your face bashed in by a Mac Queen lately? Alicia Keys promotes Mac, Proactive and bright red lipstick.

One good thing about Mac - it is harder to hack. You may have to confirm that with Mz Simpson.

On a brighter note Paleontologists have discovered the fossil of the biggest dinosaur ever found. Futalognkosaurus Dukei. A 34 metre giant lizard, a new lineage of titanosaurs. It's name means "giant chief of the lizards" and named after Duke Energy Corp which financed the excavation in Argentina.

Coincidence Dr No got his MD from Duke University. TRUST ME I use to be a gynaecologist? a wizard? a politician?a salesman?

Artists are often underestimated by common folk of little talent. The difference is , a real artist sees beauty and truth where the others draw a blank on an empty page. There is great beauty and truth in Ron Paul, for those who have the ears to hear. Yell, scream, hit them on the head, whatever it takes to wake them from their TV. induced stupor, It's either Ron Paul's America or Hillary's Socialist states.

Wow! I keep hearing about that Ron Paul guy and I had to check him out. Amazing! he's like the best of the Republicans and the democrats: he's for protecting our civil liberties, he wants to lower taxes (I can always use a tax break!) and wants to end that insane war in Iraq which is bankrupting our country and killing our soldiers.

This is one Democrats who's gonna support Ron Paul. Thanks TMZ and John Mayer!

Weather he was messing around or having honest emotions,weather or not you love or hate John Mayer......It doesn't matter-Finally people are taking about Ron Paul! It is about time, If you have no idea who he is maybe this will get people to learn about him. " Crazy People" are not the people who believe in him, that is just what the controlled media wants you to think. If he were really such a nut they would have no problem letting him speak and giving him more time on air. The powers that be do not want the American people to actually listen to Ron Paul because they are afraid we just may wake up from our media induced comas! WAKE UP PEOPLE !!! YOU BETTER START CARING ABOUT WHATS GOING ON WITH YOUR RIGHTS BEFORE YOU HAVE NONE LEFT! Try looking up the Military Commissions Act and actually reading it !!!!! That should scare the hell out of you.
