The Crucial Val Kilmer Question

Conor is overthinking this. The question is not whether Val Kilmer is qualified to be governor of New Mexico, but why someone so relatively sane as a method actor would want the job. Frankly, a crazy actor transplant who lives in Pecos is probably overqualified and would have to be turned away to avoid embarrassing everyone else in Santa Fe.
