The Predator dominoes continue to fall

First we had a Minnesota governor who didn't have time to bleed. Then Californians elected a governor who specialized in self-diagnosing headaches and tumors.

Now Sonny Landham, who played Billy in Predator, is running for a U.S. Senate seat in the Commonwealth of Kentucky. I don't know what it is about that movie, but politicians were born, dammit. The guy who the producers couldn't get insurance for during filming of Predator is running as the Libertarian Party candidate. I learned today that he also starred in porn in the 70s. Wow. I don't even know what to say.

I remember watching this movie in the back of my friend Jeremy's family's conversion van when we used to go out during high school. I never imagined that this really fun, well-executed, yet mindless action flick would produce such gravitas.

So with all that pedigree it seems a very appropriate time to post this ...
