Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Gracie Allen for President (by Lawrence J. Epstein):


She would get my vote, too. Of course someone could argue that since, say, 1976, with several obvious exceptions, only professional comedians have run for national office.
Great to see you back in the saddle again, Larry. -- DL

Thanks very much, David. I so appreciate your sense of welcoming.

Larry, thanks for this. I think, at age six or seven, when I was watching Burns & Allen, and watching George watch Harry and Grace watch George and Harry watch them both on TV as the show was going on, probably transmitted the postmodern meme to me in all its glory
(and never to be done better). Great post.

Thanks, Jim. George broke the fourth wall and did much else that hadn't been done before. Burns and Allen were a fun part of childhood.

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
