You run into the darnedest people on the campaign trail. For example: John Ratzenberger, best known for his “Cheers” role as know-it-all postman Cliff Clavin. T.W. Farnum, reporting on the efforts by billionaire conservatives Charles and David Koch to flip the Arkansas statehouse from blue to red, found their Americans for Prosperity using the Republican actor to draw crowds to campaign rallies. Ratzenberger “spoke on the dangers of political correctness and a need for more vocational training in schools. But he also wandered off message, saying repeatedly that his favorite politician was the late House speaker Thomas P. ‘Tip’ O’Neill, who was a liberal Massachusetts Democrat.”
