"Cliff Claven" Supports Linda McMahon



So much for "liberal" Hollywood, eh?
Cliff Clavin, America's favorite mailman and resident barstool know-it-all on the 1980's show Cheers, apparently has some strong opinions about the Senate race in Connecticut.
The campaign for Linda McMahon, the GOP Senate candidate and, released a Web video featuring John Ratzenberger, the actor who played Cliff, marching in a parade for McMahon and declaring that the former World Wide Wrestling CEO "lives the American Dream."

"The state of Connecticut needs someone like Linda to turn it around," says the 1980's fixture in the video. "Somebody who understands business, how to create jobs, she's really a force of nature."
Although I have to admit that, while I am a child of the 80s (ahem), I now think of John Ratzenberger as the guy who shows up in all of the Pixar animated movies (here, here, and here for example). I guess that this is what having young kids does -- an actor goes from a beer-guzzling mailman to, ironically, pork.
