Mardi Gras Caucus

Mardi Gras is picking up strange political relevance - from Heckuva Job Bobby's weird "Happy Mardi Gras" salutation (which got Stephen Colbert's shirt off) to this news from Politico.com that Val Kilmer is considering a run for governor of New Mexico. He's been Batman, Moses (in the musical version of The Ten Commandments), Jim Morrison (and is rumored to be cast as David Lee Roth in The Dirt, the biography of Motley Crue), Willem DeKooning (in Pollack) and Bacchus, so governor is the next illogical step. He has no prior experience in politics, so perhaps Jesse Ventura, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sarah Palin have made it look easy (though of the three, only Arnold has done any heavy lifting). Maybe it's actors who can do anything. And there's no telling who's already exploring a bid for Bacchus XLII.
