    Brad Pitt hasn’t thrown his hat in the ring to be mayor of his adopted hometown, New Orleans. Others have done that for him, launching a grassroots campaign complete with nifty T-shirts touting "Brad Pitt for Mayor" But he's more than willing to serve, the actor told TODAY's Ann Curry with a self-deprecating laugh. "If chosen, would you run?" Curry asked in the prerecorded interview that ran Thursday. "Yeah," Pitt said. "Would you serve?" "Yeah. I'm running on the gay marriage, no religion, legalization and taxation of marijuana platform," he joked.

    Any real candidate for mayor would kill for the kind of publicity the city's most famous non-candidate is getting. Michael DeMocker / The Times-Picayune Brad Pitt may be New Orleans' favorite son, but he can't be mayor ... at least, not yet. Brad Pitt -- he of cinematic, philanthropic and Angelina Jolie lore -- will face questions Thursday morning about a possible run for mayor of New Orleans on NBC's "Today" show. The segment will mark the first time New Orleans' most famous adopted son has publicly addressed the question that has lit up the Internet and brightened parlor conversations...

    Our boy Pitt is BACK, in a big way! In recent weeks, the erstwhile Logorrheal One has gotten off his barstool at Bukowski's and hit the keyboard. The disgraced journalist-wannabe has been pumping out columns for truthoutthewindow, mostly puff pieces kissing the rear end of the Obambi Misadministration (and attacking conservatives, of course). Maybe Will the Shill, reliable party hack that he is, is looking for a paying job. Fuggedabout it, Will! That ship left the harbor on May 12, 2006, when you reported with full assurance that Karl Rove had been indicted. Well, even if it only wins...

    Quentin Tarantino has made an eye-catching return to the Cannes Film Festival with Inglourious Basterds, an epic World War II movie set in Nazi-occupied France. Tarantino swaps fact for pulp fiction in Inglourious Basterds, a comic revenge fantasy about Jewish freedom fighters bringing down the Nazis in 1944. Brad Pitt plays Lieutenant Aldo Raine, the leader of a gang of Jewish-American soldiers operating in occupied France whose self-proclaimed mission is "to kill as many Nazis as possible". They succeed in Tarantino's usual grisly-comic fashion, carving swastikas into the foreheads of any German soldier they do not scalp. The plot culminates...

While haggling for a pair of chairs at a Hollywood market, he was told by the dealer they only cost $1,500. Our mole says: "He asked if the guy would take 'twelve'... $12,000. The dealer was stunned, it made his week." All right for some..

    Brad Pitt’s parents allegedly want him to dump partner Angeline Jolie, with who he has six children, and reunite with ex-wife Jennifer Aniston. Sources say the actor’s mom Jane Pitt dislikes Jolie and feels the actress is “no good.” “[Brad’s parents] sat him down and basically told him she’s trouble and no good. They urged him not to bring her to Cannes. Brad’s mother Jane is sick about what’s going on and has not been able to sleep well,” says an insider. “Jane would like nothing more than for Brad and Jen to reunite.” Pitt is rumored to be talking...

Today we honor the man who on May 12, 2006, just 24 business hours ago, broke the big journalistic scoop that Karl Rove had already been indicted.It was shortly after this revelation and arrest of Rove that William Rivers Pitt became the toast of the journalism world. He quickly left Truthout behind to become a regular guest on MSNBC and a respected pundit published far and wide. He could often be spotted in Peter Luger's steakhouse holding...

    It seems like William Rivers Pitt has forgotten his role in perpetrating one of the biggest journalistic frauds (Karl Rove "indictment scoop") of the 21st century. Having conveniently removed that episode from his memory banks, Pitt has now jumped back on his soapbox to lecture conservatives as you can see in his latest DUmmie THREAD, "Idiot Wind." You want some idiot wind, Pitt? Well, this edition of the DUmmie FUnnies is going to blow your own idiot wind right up your butt with your own words. Yes, every single reply will consist entirely of Pied Piper Pitt quotes so...

    In a recent article posted at, Phillip Butler makes a case for the arrest of George W. Bush, Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld for crimes against the U.S. Constitution. Butler is a veteran military pilot and was a POW in Vietnam for 2,855 days. Since his repatriation in 1973, he has earned a PhD in Sociology and according to his author bio, "he mentors business and organization leaders and is a community activist." His article is well-written and thorough, using the Third Geneva Convention and its rules regarding the interrogation of POWs as the basis for his assertions. In...

    It's not Christmas, really, without a visit from that nimble little elf, Wee Willie Pitt. Pitt knows this, of course. He EXPECTS his DUmmieland faithful to be looking forward to such a visit, so the Unusually Reticent One feels compelled to post. (The Formerly Logorrheal One was so quiet this year that voting for him as one of the Top Ten DUmmies of 2008 was something akin to, as one person noted, Cal Ripken getting voted to the All-Star team when he was past his prime.) Pitt's missive is found in this THREAD, "This might be me picking a...

    Pajamas Media ^ | December 25 | Kyle Smith
    Hollywood films rarely even attempt the sweep and heartbreak of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, a bewitching, at times overpowering movie that seems likely to win about 50 Oscars. There aren’t actually that many Oscars to hand out, but I wouldn’t put it past the Academy to invent some new categories. Based on but greatly expanded from an F. Scott Fitzgerald short story, the film by Fight Club director David Fincher proves that this gifted director can deploy all of his visual gifts to create a richly satisfying, emotionally engaging, and more than a bit schmaltzy old-time romance with...

    National Review ^ | Dec. 24, 2008 | Thomas S. Hibbs
    Opening on Christmas Day, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button is the result of an unexpected cinematic collaboration between scriptwriter Eric Roth, who penned Forrest Gump, and director David Fincher, whose credits include Se7en, Fight Club, and Zodiac. Very loosely based on an F. Scott Fitzgerald story, and starring Brad Pitt as Button, the film is about a life lived in reverse. Born with the physical features of a man in his eighties, Button grows backward into middle age, youth, and infancy. Fincher and Roth turn Button’s peculiar life, at the center of which is his star-crossed love for Daisy...

    The University of Pittsburgh has paid $5,250 in fines for the Sept. 24 macaque attack that left a laboratory employee with serious hand injuries. The Occupational Safety & Health Administration cited the university on Nov. 21 for two "serious" violations, including failing to provide adequate training for lab technicians and insufficient safety equipment at Pitt's $18 million Regional Biocontainment Laboratory in Biomedical Science Tower 3 in Oakland. Inside the lab, the university uses primates to develop vaccines with a focus on dengue, influenza, avian flu and tuberculosis. Patricia "Trish" Boyle, 54, of Avalon, was feeding a macaque, known as a...

    As we've been chronicling, our DUmmie Ants are growing increasingly antsy over the possibility of losing what should be an easy win for them. Thus they are preparing their excuses "just in case"--primarily "election fraud" and "racism." Pied Piper Pitt is warming up the "racism" excuse, as seen in this THREAD, "Counting Our Chickens." Yes, it's the old Pied Piper Pitt essay we've haven't seen in a while: pedantic, prolix, ponderous, pregnant with profound insight into American history (as in Pitt's laughably classic "Third American Empire"). For today's drinking game, the magic word is "The Great Migration." Oh, BTW,...
