Video: Val Kilmer at Mardi Gras in New Orleans

One of New Orleans' perennial favorite Mardi Gras parades - the Krewe of Bacchus - rolled this year with actor Val Kilmer as King.

Kilmer, who's considering running for Governor in New Mexico, tossed Bacchus coin or doubloon to the cheering crowds as the parade crossed the city to the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center on the New Orleans riverfront where the serious partying began.

To read more on Kilmer's possible political interest check out New Mexico bloggers NMFBIHOP and Heath Haussamen, the New Mexico Independent and one of our favorites, Democracy for New Mexico.

Thanks to Jeremy Jojola for the video hattip.

Happy Fat Tuesday, Peter. Ah, wish I was in NOLA today to join the reveries. Personally, I think Val is perfect for Bacchus and Bacchanalia. I wouldn't be surprised if he's taking a ride on the streetcar named Desire either. Desire to be guv anyway!
