Surprise surprise! Matthew McConaughey has made clear his intentions to run for governor of Texas, maybe.


CNN reports that he recently appeared on an episode of “The Balanced Voice” podcast, and said he is putting “true consideration” into a maybe election campaign, now that Greg Abbott is up for reelection in 2022, and asking himself: “What is my leadership role? [...] What’s my category in my next chapter of life that I’m going into?

Acting really does things to the brain.

CNN also reports that in November, McConaughey told Hugh Hewitt of The Hugh Hewitt Show: “It would be up to the people more than it would me.”

Every single clip of the final season of KUWTK is more outlandish than the last. Here’s Kris Jenner openly weeping about the show’s finale to Real Housewives star Kyle Richards and The Morally Corrupt Faye Resnick. Crying is OK, that’s not the issue.

I think I am just completely bankrupt on sympathy for this family?

Of the decision to end it all:

“It is complicated and there’s all these different personalities and people and kids and grandkids and everybody and thinking, ‘What’s the right thing for everybody? And when’s the right moment?’ It’s been incredibly challenging and incredibly hard.”


There there, Kris!

It’s simple. All someone has to do is ask McConaughey, on camera, “If you were governor when the storm hit, what, specifically, would you have done to maintain power getting to peoples’ homes? And as a follow-on: How will you improve the Texas power grid so this never happens again?”

After he flails around like an oil-soaked duck in the water, that’ll do enough damage.
