I’m watching Predator on FX tonight and pondering “So when is Carl Weathers running for governor?” Jesse’s been governor of Minnesota. Arnold’s running for governor of California. I’m just waiting at this point to see the bumper stickers “Weathers in 2004!”
At this point, I’m kidding. But if you’d asked me ten years ago if any of the cast of Predator would make it to high office anywhere, I’d have laughed then too and sworn it could never happen. On the other hand, my grandparents would have probably died laughing had anyone said in 1950 that Ronald Reagan would be President some day. Not just President, but a conservative icon.
