Other Celebrities I’d Vote Into Public Office Because Of A Character They Played On TV Once


You’ve probably heard by now that Cynthia Nixon, who played Miranda Hobbes on Sex and the City, is running for governor of the state of New York and I’m voting for her. Well, maybe you hadn’t heard that I’m voting for her but you should’ve assumed. What’s her platform? Who cares! All I know is Miranda would make a great governor so Cynthia’s got my vote. Who else would I vote for simply because of a character they played on TV once?

  1. Amy Poehler
    She played Leslie Knope, an actual politician, on Parks and Recreation. I’m not sure if Leslie was any good at her job but she was enthusiastic and that’s good enough for me.
  2. Christine Baranski
    Diane Lockhart is my ideal presidential candidate, mostly because I love a statement necklace.
  3. Kerry Washington
    Scandal’s Olivia Pope would be a shady, untrustworthy politician, but aren’t they all?
  4. Sandra Oh
    Christina Yang for president!
  5. Julia Louis-Dreyfus
    She plays the bumbling, conniving former President (for like a month) Selina Meyer on Veep, but that’s not why I’d vote for her. I’d vote for her because Elaine Benes would make a shrewd city comptroller.
  6. Sarah Paulson
    If she can play Marcia Clark, she can do anything.
  7. Susan Kelechi Watson
    Not only is Beth Pearson the only character on This Is Us who’s not a complete disaster and/or a fucking idiot, she’s great!
  8. Mindy Kaling
    The Office’s Kelly Kapoor is an untrustworthy buffoon, but she’s got my vote.
  9. Lena Dunham
    True, Girls’ Hannah Horvath is a monster, but I’d vote for her.
  10. Martin Sheen
    I wouldn’t vote for him. Sure, he played unrealistically altruistic president Josiah Bartlet on The West Wing, but do you honestly think I’m going to blindly trust a man just because he was on TV? Yeah right!
