Remember the child actress whose innocent little character, “Laura Ingalls,” was called “Half-Pint” by “Pa,” the character played by the late Michael Landon, on the 1970s television show, Little House on the Prairie? Well, Melissa Gilbert has grown up, and she’s running as a Democrat for a Republican-held seat in the U.S. House of Representatives.
Thanks to her recent bankruptcy, it appears she’s running in order to avoid having to appear in the new television legal drama, “Foreclosed House on the Prairie.” She even has a campaign website, Gilbert for Michigan, though it offers nothing about her political stands on the issues.
Please share this article if you think we don’t need another “half-pint” in Congress.
