How has the inauguration inspired Celebrity Fit Club skinny and Tonight Show comedian Ross Mathews? The funnyman has plans to run for mayor of Palm Springs. “When I go to Palm Springs I introduce myself as ‘Hi, I am your future mayor,’” Mathews told us at the Human Rights Campaign’s Out for Equality ball at the Mayflower Hotel last night, where Rufus Wainwright, Cyndi Lauper, and Melissa Etheridge performed. Three handsome men interrupted us, trying to introduce themselves to the baby-face lad, but Mathews would not be distracted. “I am going to be the mayor of Palm Springs … these are not aspirations, dearheart. I'll bring an extended happy hour, from 9 a.m. to 10:45 p.m. I just want to wear kimonos and Native American jewelry. I want them to build a statue of me in town center.” But he’d also settle for a spot in Obama’s Cabinet. Fluttering his eyelashes, he said, “For Obama, I would assume any position he wanted.”
