Senator Nanny

Fran Drescher wants to replace Hillary Clinton in the Senate.

You remember Fran Drescher. Best known as the fingernails-on-the-chalkboard-voiced title character on the 90s TV show "The Nanny."

From New York Magazine:
“I was thinking I’d take the next four years to lay some groundwork, but I’m throwing my hat in the ring.” What else makes her a good candidate? “I’m an authentic and honest person,” she said. “And I think Capitol Hill needs more of that.”
Emphasis added. Blogger Robert Stacy McCain remembers seeing Drescher at the Democratic National Convention in Denver:
"My right to choose was taken away when I was given a radical hysterectomy to cure my cancer," Drescher said. "I hate that I lost my right to choose, and you will, too."
I wouldn't mind seeing that kind of honesty and authenticity from a Democrat Senator. It'd be like Joycelyn Elders' second coming!

No, wait, it'd be like Joycelyn Elders, but in a room full of helium, played at 78 rpm!
