You would think it was at least 2010 yet. No, it's still 2009. You would think that Attorney General Jerry Brown has at least announced he is running for governor. And no, he filed paperwork Tuesday to form an exploratory committee. Yet still, Jerry Brown yesterday received endorsement from some powerful Hollywood folk, according to Variety.

"They all believe he knows the job inside and out and is the best qualified candidate to fix the mess in Sacramento," says Andy Spahn, a political consultant for Steven Spielberg, Jeffrey Katzenberg and David Geffen. "He was way ahead of his time in promoting the environment and renewable energy, on bringing diversity to government, and in championing the arts."
