Matt Duss makes a great catch. “Revealing a rather peculiar lack of awareness, the Corner’s very next post is a link to an archive of articles about actor-turned-politician Ronald Reagan:”
Although we mustn’t forget that this is also what Sonny Bono and Arnold Schwarzenegger hath wrought. Reagan’s career as an actor was possibly less distinguished than Franken’s–certainly less distinguished than Kilmer’s. Bono was a joke, and Schwarzenegger, while popular and fun, isn’t a very good actor. So in that sense, Kilmer might be a breath of fresh air. Unfortunately, my understanding is that he’s also kind of a weirdo.
