EXCLUSIVE: Randy Quaid, the next senator from the Great State of Vermont? Well pause a moment while that concept sinks in.
The veteran actor tweeted a threat/warning Thursday claiming that reps from a superPAC have approached him about running against Bernie Sanders for his U.S. Senate seat next year. And a reality show pitch about that potentially wacky race is making its way around town. Public Spectacle Media is planning an unscripted series that would follow Quaids long-shot bid to become the junior senator from the Green Mountain State.
Some very powerful people representing a super pac have approached me about running against Bernie Sanders for senator. 100%

Amid the Donald Trump era of reality TVs convergence with politics, the proposed docu-sitcom is in development at Public Spectacle Media. The show would follow Quaid and likely his wife, Evi, who grew up in Vermont as he takes on one of the most high-profile politicians in the country. Bradford Broyles and Lenny Britton of Public Spectacle and Amanda Raymond are the producers.
While the odds dont exactly favor Quaid unseating the lefty darling who gave Hillary Clinton a run for her big money last year, it could be a hoot to witness. Quaid, of course, has been out of the Hollywood spotlight for the past decade or so but hes been in the news. Two years ago, he and Evi were held by U.S. Customs in Vermont on charges of skipping the country to dodge a 2010 case involving breaking into and vandalizing their former home in Santa Barbara, CA. The couple had fled to Vancouver and were detained at the Canadian border in October 2015 while trying to re-enter the U.S. after officials from the Great White North granted Evi Quaid citizenship but denied Randy permanent residence and said he would be deported. The actor was released days later and allowed to stay in Vermont.
Quaids credits include Brokeback Mountain, a Golden Globe-winning turn in LBJ: The Early Years, comedy classics Kingpin and Vacation and his Oscar-nominated early-career role opposite Jack Nicholson in The Last Detail.
The first film credit they give Randy Quaid is Brokeback Mountain? Really?
I’m going to have to go with Quaid on this one.
How can they forget his self sacrifice during an alien invasion?
What do you call a nation ruled by actors? A thespiocracy?
Not the worst idea, probably. It is going to take a lot of thinking outside the box to shift the attitudes of Vermonters on the possible retention of Bernie Sanders as their Senator.
Vermont has become a sort of Petri dish in which the culture of socialism is grafted upon what once were “good, old-fashioned” virtues of thrift and “keeping the seed corn” on hand for spring planting.
Heh heh heh...
In Vermont, that would be a plus.................
I love it! He stomps all over Bernie based on that alone! Lol!
Ill take Cousin Eddie over a commie every time. Hell do less damage.
Is he a liberal, or conservative?
He’s not a communist, like Bernie........................
Of course they have. They still blame Bernie for making Hitlery's coronation a rough road.
Isn’t he still a fugitive from justice and/or felon?
Cousin Eddie vs. Crazy Uncle Bernie
Who hates the U.S. least, Quaid or Bernard Sanders?
It’s a toss up, a Hollywood know nothing or Bernie.
Randy Quaid is less crazy then Bernie.
