Does your political hero need to watch 'Heroes'?

Wire_l

Wire_lQuick survey: Do you care what the presidential hopefuls like to watch on TV? (I keep reading and hearing pop-culture name-dropping here and there, but here’s a comprehensive list of everyone’s picks.) Apparently, Obama loves The Wire (pictured), Kucinich is still obsessed with The Lone Ranger, and McCain identifies with Prison Break “because as a fellow prisoner, I always dreamed and plotted how I would break out of the Hanoi Hilton.” Oh, gag me. Don’t even get me started on how completely fake and pandering Hillary’s choices are. (Right, babe, I’m sure you watch Dancing With the Stars. We should totally have viewing parties next season! You can help me write TV Watches with your witty observations! BRING CHIPS.) Why can’t one of them just release an official statement along the lines of “Look, I’m exhausted; I live on a bus and have no idea what the Dharma Initiative is; the last thing I watched start-to-finish was Johnny Carson; would you just look at these undereye circles?!?!” Or would that be totally uncool?
