Dirk Benedict for Governor

Dirk Benedict [Face on The A-Team and Starbuck on the original Battlestar Galactica] is apparently following where Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jesse "The Body" Ventura have been before and is taking a shot at becoming a Governor. The only problem I have with this is the fact he reveals this information while being interviewed in Ireland this week by Podge and Rodge.

On the Podge & Rodge Show, Benedict was explaining how difficult it was to be a conservative in a traditionally liberal profession. Podge asked Benedict if he had any political aspirations himself to which Benedict responded that he'll be running for Governor of Montana and that we'll be hearing about that soon enough.

I can find no other media report confirming this even on the actors own website so I don't know how serious he was. If anyone has more information they might send it my way.

The League of Women Voters is the place to go for all your voting questions. They are a nonpartisan agency. Their Search Smart Voter tool doesn't list any one with the name of Benedict running in Montana in 2008. Maybe later?

Oh, and the current Lt. Gov of Montana? He's a retired Marine!
