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.

Ahhh...finally a good choice for President and it's too late! Love Gracie, listen to the old shows frequently. Haven't voted for a winning candidate since 1984, between Perot and the Libertarian Party. I know Gracie's campaign was tongue and cheek...but can't help thinking she'd agree with me that our 27-plus trillion dollar national debt isn't really a 'joke'.
