Bill Barker

As long as we're still looking for a replacement:

CLEAR LAKE, Iowa, July 4 — As thousands of people cheered along the Fourth of July parade route here, it was the tall man with the familiar white hair who made the crowd go truly gaga.

“Bob Barker! It’s Bob Barker!” two women shrieked upon seeing the former president, Bill Clinton in the distance, as he and Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York marched hand-in-hand.

The crazy thing is that the other day, during frisbee practice, I noted that Bill would be the perfect fill-in for Bob. You can take my word for it or not, but I must ask one question: Would Bill be capable of more mischief as First Lady or as the next Bob Barker? Keep in mind that the latter host had a scandal or two following him. Bill may not know how to play Plinko--he'll learn--but he's got sexual harassment down pat. And, like Bob, he's charming in that creepy sort of way.

Oh, and he will probably live about 40 to 60 more years. Do those guys go home and plug in to formaldehyde machines, just drink the sauce, or what?

A Wiser Man Than I said...

I'm betting against the sauce.
