Lighten up

Here's the YouTube link to the Hillary Clinton campaign video spoof of the Sopranos finale, which features a cameo by Vincent Curatola, who played mobster Johnny Sacramoni on the HBO series.


The Washington New York Post asked Curatola about his appearance.

Curatola told The Post he jumped at the chance to appear with Bill and Hillary Clinton. He did not get paid for his performance, but received car service to and from the shoot.

"I like a lot about her. Guts, first of all. A lot of guts, a lot of staying power," he told The Post.

Curatola added that he twice voted for Bill Clinton, but insisted he's "not a political animal."

"I have a great time staring them down, which they know did not come from my heart. It was only my acting," added Curatola.

He quipped that "sitting with a former leader of the free world and a senator is a nice way to spend a Sunday morning."

This kind of stuff won't win over the committed harpies, like Maureen Dowd, but I think it's useful with those outside the media herd in disspelling the Hillary-as-ice-queen narrative.
