Oy vay

This is the real deal; no item better fits the term oy vay.

Actress Fran Drescher has expressed interest in being appointed to the U.S. Senate seat that New York's Hillary Clinton is giving up to become secretary of state, a spokesman for the actress said. No, seriously.

Imagine her in the Senate. Try and imagine it.

"Fran Drescher, actress, women's health advocate and public diplomacy envoy for the U.S. State Department, announced that she is throwing her hat into the ring of contenders for the senate seat being vacated by Secretary of State-designate Hillary Rodham Clinton," Drescher spokesman Jordan Brown told CNN in a written statement late Monday.

Aw-my-gawd! And she has a spokesman, to boot.

Drescher, 51, is best known for her starring role in the 1990s television comedy "The Nanny" and an adenoidal voice that could strip the rust off an engine block — a talent that might come in handy during a Senate filibuster.

Adenoidal: sounding as if the nose were pinched; "a whining nasal voice". 'xactly. Awmygawd.
