    Larry David has a tremendous opportunity to SPOOF all the knuckleheads in the Presidential race. It would make for a perfect restart season of Curb your Enthusiasm –Larry as Bernie, JB as Ben carson, Jeff as Chris Christy, Susie as….HILLARY! …he could PILOT it on SNL….or maybe it’ll end up as just more of THE LOST EPISODES- Curb Your Enthusiasm (this –on amazon # 1491081627 ]. It’s ALL there–10 episodes, and more. Just waiting for HBO…..OR SNL???
