It’s like watching a newborn endangered species take its first steps…

I sure hope its mother doesn’t eat it:

“I think we ought to be personally responsible,” actor Bill Murray said on CNBC’s “Squawk Box” Friday morning. “I think if you can take care of yourself, and then maybe try to take care of someone else, that’s sort of how you’re supposed to live.

“It’s not a question of asking other people for help or being rescued or anything like that,” he continued. “I think we’ve sort of gotten used to someone looking out for us, and I don’t think any other person is necessarily going to be counted on to look out for us.”

Update:
Commenter RickyRaccoon points out that this interview is actually a few months old. My apologies — it’s the first time I’ve seen it so I didn’t realize.  That said, I found some pretty genius commentary on the politics of Bill Murray and his movies here.  Is Bill Murray actually a closeted conservative?  Possibly, but as the blogger notes, there’s no definitive way to pin down an answer.  He’s a good actor and unlike some others in Hollywood (ahem, I’m looking at YOU, Matt Damon, George Clooney, etc.), Murray’s sticking with what he knows.
