Val Kilmer for Governor

California’s Governator may soon have competition in the celebrity executive department. Cindy Adams confirms today that Val Kilmer is mulling a run for governor of New Mexico. “Well, it’s sort of true,” Kilmer said by cellphone from Bulgaria. “I really love my state. Poor hardworking decent people … I’ve always thought of myself as functioning as a candidate for them.” He claims to have the blessing of Bill Richardson, who hopes to bolt the Land of Enchantment for Obama’s Cabinet. Which means the man who once played Batman would be governing in the same region as the man who once played Mr. Freeze. Could the Union possibly survive?
