Life imitates television.

Comedian Volodymyr Zelensky, who plays president of Ukraine in a television series, has won the first round of Ukraine's presidential elections with about 30% of the vote, according to an exit poll cited by the BBC.

The big picture: Zelensky will face off against incumbent Petro Poroshenko in a runoff, since neither candidate received a majority.

Ukrainian voters, who generally hold a dim view of their government, crowded into polling stations on Sunday to vote in a presidential election in which the unlikely front-runner was a young comedian who plays an accidental president on television.

Ukraine is such a hot mess, there's an article today in the NY Times talking about assassinations there; it says they are so common they barely get a blip on local news.

I'd take Julia Louis-Dreyfus over Pence any day.
