THAT'S THE TICKET: I don't know how this escaped our attention earlier, but I just learned that Morgan Fairchild is running for President of the Screen Actor's Guild. As most of you know, because the SAG president can be (a) a labor leader while simultaneously being (b) obscenely rich enough to employ an entire house-staff of part-time minimum-wage immigrants with no health care, the SAG post usually gives its occupants an unobstructed path to the actual presidency of the actual United States of America. So Fairchild-Obama in 2008, I guess.
Fairchild is not running unopposed -- Robert Conrad and Alan Rosenberg are also campaigning. Which brings up another question: If, as I assume is true, 90% of SAG members are waiting tables to pay their bills, why do they always elect semi-famous B-listers? Wouldn't their interests be better served by electing somebody whose last IMDB credit was "upset Knicks fan" in Air Bud II or something like that?
