My vote would have gone to 'no robot would be stupid enough to go into politics'. As a corollary, if a robot did go into politics, the results would undoubtedly be bad. I think you either get Norman in Star Trek and the "Liar's Paradox", or bedlam for the governed, ala the HAL 9000 and the "Hofstadter–Moebius loop"
