I have learned to loathe politics over the year, but I have always loved comedy. Especially Seinfeld.
If you've been following the presidential election, you may know about Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders. He's the quirky, Democratic, socialist running for president, and he's closer in the polls to Hillary Clinton than any of the other candidates running (or at least trying to), and looks and acts a lot like Larry David, who co-created the "show about nothing," and had his own show on HBO called Curb Your Enthusiasm.
David and Sanders are very alike in their mannerisms and Saturday Night Live brought back David, who was a writer for one season on the show back in the 80s, to play the eccentric Senator. It's right up there with Tina Fey's Sarah Palin and Will Ferrell's George W. Bush.
Lorne Michaels, PLEASE invite Larry back to do Sanders for as long as he's around during the race. Everyone though Donald Trump was a joke, but he's still around, so why not keep Bernie around a little longer? It might do wonders for ratings.
