As E.M. Zanotti puts it, this is indeed a “gift to the world.” Jennifer Granholm, The Dating Game, 1978.

This really happened. Watch as Jennifer chooses between an amateur magician, a “male model” and a “robust” man who speaks five languages.

Who does then 19-year-old Granholm end up with? And, more importantly, where did she get those suspenders?! The whole thing must be watched. Since we’re having “That ’70s Election,” indulge in the low-rent production values, the awkward double entendre neutered by network standards and bachelor IQs, and evidence of enough aerosol hairspray to suggest Granholm might favor cap-and-trade as penance, not just policy. The Detroit Free-Press has details on how the gem came to light. Thank Facebook!

Further evidence of our being mired in ’70s-style ennui and self-flagellation? I watched “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” yesterday— not just because I find brunettes with gigantic teeth to be an inspiration— and found all of her clothes charming and wearable! Lord help us!
