William Shatner for DNC "Mystery Guest"

Sure, he's Canadian. I still say we need him!
David Frum, the stalwart (and virtually exiled) conservative columnist has suggested that the Democratic National Convention hire William Shatner as their "mystery guest" to counter the confounding appearance of (also octogenarian) Clint Eastwood at the RNC. As an example, Frum posted a clip of Shatner's weird, 70s-era lounge singing. I have a better idea. Keep it Shatner--I'm all about the Shat--but have him in character as Denny Crane, from Boston Legal! Crane was a bombastic, rock-ribbed Republican who happened to be suffering from "the mad cow." BL has been off the air now for a couple of years, but I think that Denny Crane bears a strong enough resemblance to a tea bagger, that a Shatner bit could bring the house down! Uh, just don't do it in prime time the last night of the convention.

Take this message taped for ABC affiliates, change the script a bit, maybe substitute Joe Biden or Barack Obama instead of James Spader. . . It. Could. WORK!!!


  1. Well, the GOP has two of the U.S.'s manly men in Clint Eastwood and Chuck Norris.
    So, my suggestion would be Jack Nicholson, Nicholas Cage or one of the captains from the Deadliest Catch for the Democrats

  2. The GOP manly men are very, very old and creaky, wouldn't you say? We've got George Clooney, Brad Pitt and Matt Damon! Though Nick Cage is definitely on par with Eastwood for the bizarreness.
