Greeson: OK, when Wooderson is our political voice of reason, we know the system is broken, right?

Every once in awhile a Hollywood heavyweight gets it.

I am talking about A-lister Matthew McConaughey, who over the weekend sounded 100% the voice of reason on what most certainly was envisioned as a hopeful comedy podcast with fellow Hollywood big-shot Russell Brand.

McConaughey, who rose to Hollywood stardom playing David Wooderson, the town stoner in "Dazed and Confused," was as savvy as your grandfather between whittles.

The same McConaughey, who named his production company "Alright, Alright, Alright!" after a line in the 1993 classic, crafted what sounded to me like a sensible reaction to all of the hysteria that is the 2020 election.

"There are a lot [of people] on that illiberal left that absolutely condescend, patronize and are arrogant towards the other 50 percent," he said on Brand's podcast, "Under the Skin."
