A kid in the 1950s knew the answer: "It's Howdy Doody Time!" There was Buffalo Bob Smith leading a cast of human and marionette characters cheered on by an audience of attentive boys and girls called the Peanut Gallery. The year 1952 was the Eisenhower-vs-Stevenson presidential race. The show had their own election: it was Howdy against Flub-a-Dub and an outlier called Mr. X. The Peanut Gallery was the electorate. Howdy was the favorite, a few dirty tricks pulled by Howdy's opponents, but back then the good guy won. Fast-forward to 2020; let's match the show's characters with today's contenders. Indian Princess Summerfallwinterspring plays Elizabeth Warren, typical type casting for the self-proclaimed Cherokee. Liz's Peanut Gallery is hard to figure they know she's untrustworthy with many personal stories later discovered untruthful, has grandiose plans and a banana republic approach for the redistribution of wealth that would fall far short of paying for them, go figure. Enter Bernie Sanders: a clone of Phineas T. Bluster. His speech and body language are zingers for Phineas's. Bernie's a socialist not a stranger to the Democrats these days. His Peanut Gallery followers are a younger set lured by freebies to them socialism is a Sunday afternoon event serving free ice cream. Clarabell the Clown plays Joe Biden.
