When I saw that John Ratzenberger, the actor who played Cliff Claven on Cheers, was going to appear at last weekend’s Faith and Freedom Coalition conference, I kind of chuckled. Turns out he was there to introduce Allen West and his comments were a bit…unusual.
“We should really take something from his gene pool and put it everywhere across this great country,” Ratzenberger said. “A real American hero, my friend, Allen West.”
It was not immediately clear if Ratzenberger intended for West to personally distribute his DNA or had some other method in mind for sharing the “gene pool.”
You know, it’s a little known fact that a person can spread their gene pool around an entire country merely by trying to hold on to the last fading bit of glory from having been on a TV sitcom a couple decades earlier. No word yet on how Punky Brewster feels about the subject.
