Apparently, the diminutive octogenarian comedienne is the most trusted celebrity in America. There is something nice and anti-cult of youthy about the idea that our favorite famous person is a little old lady. But really, I just want to see the fight over the Betty White endorsement, or a big conservative push to abolish Medicare and Social Security that would give us an excuse to enlist White for a national advertising campaign where she’s selling something other than pet medicine or Snickers:

Nobody better take away America’s Grandma’s Social Security.
