The "brass-balled" Moron of the Year Award
I've mentioned in several posts before that Val Kilmer continues to hint that he might run for Governor of New Mexico and has been seen 'buddy buddy' with Governor Richardson and Ben Ray Lujan during the recent elections.
However; Kilmer continues to put his foot in his mouth and is not endearing himself to the locals.
Mathew Reichbach of the New Mexico Independent has reported that remarks in an Esquire interview with Kilmer have upset some veterans, particularly those towards Vietnam veterans.
The exerpt contained a quote where Kilmer said, '...as an actor, he understands the people he plays even better than they understand themselves'.
"You understand how it feels to shoot someone as much as a person who was actually committed a murder?"
"I understand it more. It’s an actor’s job. A guy who’s lived through the horror of Vietnam has not spent his life preparing his mind for it. He’s some punk. Most guys were borderline criminal or poor, and that’s why they got sent to Vietnam. It was all the poor, wretched kids who got beat up by their dads, guys who didn’t get on the football team, couldn’t finagle a scholarship. They didn’t have the emotional equipment to handle that experience. But this is what an actor trains to do. I can more effectively represent that kid in Vietnam than a guy who was there."
WHAT THE FU**!!?? John Kerry and John McCain don't fit that description!!!! ....NOR my dad for that matter, BITCH!! Who's he kidding!!
"If I run, I’m going to be the next governor,” he was quoted by The Associated Press.
Kilmer said he’s not a politician and isn’t “going to try to become one,” adding that he has “no interest in being governor of New Mexico for… fame and power.”
Kilmer was quoted by the Bostom Globe last month as saying a lot of actors become politicians, “and they always win, so I guess we’ll see.”
Not a snowflakes chance in hell.
Hmmm... can you say Jesse Ventura or Al Franken.... yikes.
