CNBC reports that new robots could be trained to replace service industry employees including coffee baristas, hamburger flippers, and retail store T-Shirt folders. But what about the industries that involve providing fewer services, like say, being a member of Congress?
3 Politicians We’d Like To See Robot Versions Of
1. Rand Paul. Forget what you’ve heard about Rand Paul’s filibustering skills. A robot could filibuster for infinity, without a single bathroom break!
2. Marco Rubio. A robot certainly wouldn’t have to awkwardly reach to get a bottle of water during a speech. Unless you consider the part when the robot drinks the water and sparks begin flying out of it to be “awkward.”
3. Michelle Bachmann. We’re certain robotic Michelle Bachmann could have won the race with CNN reporter Dana Bash down the halls of the Capitol Building by at least twenty lengths, when being asked to substantiate incorrect allegations made that the President hires a dog-walker with taxpayers’ money. Of course, robotic Michelle Bachmann wouldn’t make factual errors, and even if it did, it could transform itself into a dog-walker wearing a monocle and top hat, and convince the public the story was true.
