Brad Pitt for Mayor?

The people have spoken, and they want Brad Pitt to lead them!

At least, the people of New Orleans, anyway.

MSNBC reports that a movement is building to recruit the Inglourious Basterds star into the 2010 New Orleans mayoral race, going so far as to print up T-shirts with the actor’s likeness and the slogan “Brad Pitt for Mayor.” (Pitt has no made secret of his fondness for the Crescent City, having lived in New Orleans for a while and contributing significantly to the Lower Ninth Ward’s post-Katrina rebuilding with his Make It Right Foundation.)
