Forget Caroline Kennedy, now Fran Drescher, the screechy actress best known as TV's The Nanny, is jockying for Hillary Clinton's Senate seat:
She says she’s qualified. “I’ve just been given the appointment of U.S. diplomat,” she said at a party for Le Cirque: A Table in Heaven at that restaurant on December 3. “My title is public diplomacy envoy for women’s health issues, and I just got back from a four-country European tour of duty. I believe next I’ll be sent to the Middle East.”
Oh sure, laugh it up. Call it ridiculous. But when we as a people let the guy from Jingle All the Way become governor of California and the guy from Stuart Saves His Family almost maybe become a US Senator, we only have ourselves to blame when ALF decides he's entitled to be Secretary of Labor.
