For this to make sense, you sort of have to know that some folks in Montana have been talking up the idea of Jeff Bridges running for the U.S. Senate.
Armed with that, you are more likely to get this item on The Fix yesterday, headlined “The Jeff Bridges Senate campaign, a play in one act.” An excerpt:
Scene 1: Interior, a large house in Montana. BRIDGES enters and turns on the light. He is grabbed by a pair of INTRUDERS, dragged to the bathroom, and his head is thrust into the toilet.
INTRUDER: You better run for Senate, Bridges.
BRIDGES: (gurgling sounds)
VOICE: Run for Senate, Bridges.
They pull his head out of the toilet. BRIDGES doesn’t recognize the pair, nor does he know what the “DSCC” on their name badges means.
BRIDGES: (sighing) Does this place look like I’m a f***ing politician?
The room is decorated in a marijuana leaf motif. One of the intruders looks at the decor, then at Bridges, and then looks at the rug.
In spite of it all, as The Dude says to the Narrator later in the script, “The Dude abides, etc.”
