Fraiser for NYC Mayor … maybe.
According to the New York Post, Kelsey Grammer of ‘Cheers’ and ‘Fraiser’ fame is considering a run for political office in the Empire state. Grammer is truly an anomaly when it comes to Hollywood actors. Not only is he a Republican, he is an anti-tax, small-government GOP’er and an activist. Small government Republican, that’s more than I can say for many presently in the Republican party.
The “Frasier” star — a longtime conservative Republican — now says he plans to run for office, perhaps right here in New York, when he gives up acting.
“I have had a great career and extraordinary opportunities,” he told The Post. “But I look at my political aspirations as that last piece of my life — where I hope to do something good for people and pay back a little.”
The leap from actor to politician isn’t that great, the actor believes. Both, he says, require a “narcissistic personality” to succeed.
Good luck to Kelsey Grammer in his political endeavors if he wishes to jump into the arena. After all, if uber-lib Alec Baldwin can imply that he is going to run for NYC mayor … why not Fraiser?
