Thompson in

Politico says Knox Pooley is indeed going to run for president.

Shit, you don't even have to go back that far. His character on Law & Order is annoyingly too-conservative for me.

Speaking of which, since he's essentially playing himself on that show (DA, Senator, Presidential candidate...what's the difference?), does it qualify as a campaign tool? Will NBC be forced to give air time to other candidates to offset his screen time?

(I'm only half joking here.)

Not even half. I have heard his episodes might have to go out of circulation--if he wins the nomination at least.

It is sort of ridiculous how much his image as an actor is linked to his appeal as a politician.

Then again, can you blame Republicans for panicking over their field of presidential candidates? You'd be desperate too!
