Grandpa Munster(AKA Sam Dracula) was the sarcastic patriarch of the Munster family even though his son-in-law, Herman, owned the house and daughter, Lily, kept things together. Often a behind the scenes character relegated to his subterranean lab, Grandpa hatches scheme after scheme and invention after invention. As a vampire, he is active at night and one had to wonder what he was really up to and when one of his ideas would cause problems.
George Soroshas become the patriarch of the Democratic party with the passage of the McCaim-Feingold Campaign Finance Reform bill. Political money did not dry up, it just gave control to non-profit organizations, many of which are financially supported by Soros. Soros has been often behind the scenes orchestrating (donated an estimated $23 million to defeat George Bush in 2004) the creation of new organizations to alter the direction of America. No word on whether Soros is actually a vampire or just lives by destroying conservatives or at least seems to thrive on the attempt.
