You just have to love this narrative:
IT HAPPENED AGAIN LAST NIGHT!
Now Claire’s running for office.
Julie Bowen’s character on Modern Family declared for City Council last night.
Sue Sylvester (Jane Lynch) has her congressional campaign in high gear on Glee.
Amy Poehler’s Leslie Knope on Parks and Recreation has her own campaign website here.
Lawyer Diane Lockhart (Christine Baranski) on The Good Wife is toying with the idea of running.
And Julia Louis-Dreyfus will join these activist characters as the VEEP next year.How about you?
Will life imitate art? Will you step up and lead?
I actually don’t watch much television – and none of these shows. But I think it’s fantastic and would LOVE for life to imitate art. When are you going to run for office?
BONUS: In real life, the woman scorned by NJ Governor Chris Christie is running for the New Jersey General Assembly and David Sirota’s wife is running for school board in a race in Colorado that involves more than $600,000 in total campaign contributions among candidates – for school board.
Hattip for the collection of characters going for the arena to The 2012 Project.
