Actor Val Kilmer already has a decent amount of experience playing big, fat, bearded drop-outs in the movies, so it would seem that making the leaping into playing the Governor of New Mexico in real life would be a no-brainer…
Fresh from the inauguration, actor Val Kilmer is pondering running for governor in 2010, when Democrat Bill Richardson's second term ends.
"I'm just looking for ways to be contributive," Kilmer told The Associated Press on Thursday. "And if that ends up being where I can make a substantial contribution, then I'll run."
He certainly has been making "a substantial contribution" recently.
A Kilmer candidacy could throw a monkey wrench into the well-oiled Democratic machine of Lt. Gov. Diane Denish, who's already running for the job.
The very idea of that is idiotic.
Lt. Gov. Denish isn't nearly obese enough to tackle the job.
