The Sound of the Crowd

Oh please, oh PLEASE…

According to the NY Post…

“JOHN Cleese might follow in the footsteps of Ronald Reagan, Clint Eastwood, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Gary Coleman by making a run for California public office, according to a “Monty Python” co-star. Michael Palin told London’s Daily Telegraph that Cleese is “very involved with [his] local community” in Santa Barbara, and is thinking of running for mayor. He added that Cleese would “do a great job.” As for his acting career, Palin stated, “He doesn’t really want to do comedy anymore. He has a very active and inquiring mind.” Cleese’s appearances in the “Harry Potter” movies will “fund the rest of his life,” says Palin. “

Oh, please make this so. Just to see Govenor Schwarzenegger have to deal with Mayor Cleese. Picture the French taunter or Mr. Hilter (“In business, is he?” “Soon, baby.”) vs the Terminator. The machine wouldn’t stand a chance. Hell, if this happens I would try to move to Santa Barbara (if it’s good enough for Cleese, Dr. Seuss, and the Reagans…) just so I could vote in that election. And I hope his deputy is Kevin Phillips “Bong.”
