I actually pondered this last week. I can’t believe that the man who created the Keatons has responded. But I’m not at all surprised by what he concluded:
I think Ron Paul’s message is one that would resonate with Alex. And he would appreciate Paul’s intellectual power and his willingness to state his positions unequivocally and without regard to which way the political winds were blowing. I think he’d really like Mike Huckabee’s ideas* of getting rid of the IRS. (I know I do.) But ultimately Alex likes to win, and I think that would have kept him from fully committing to either of those guys.
So it turns out I am Alex P. Keaton. Except for that whole diet-pill episode…
* For the record, I think Ron Paul advocated the dissolution of the IRS long before Huckabee, but whatever.
