the shallow north meets the deep south

GOP Primary/America Over: Jeff Foxworthy Endorses Mitt Romney

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

How hard do you think executive human Mitt Romney will sweep the Deep South now that he has the solemnly tweeted endorsement of Jeff Foxworthy? Is there a better way to win over voters in the now crucially crucial Alabama and Mississippi than campaigning alongside Jeff Foxworthy, the King of the Deep South according to everyone who doesn’t live there? Probably! But that’s not stopping Mitt Romney, “y’all.” Combine this endorsement with Kid Rock’s (YOW! COWBOY, BABY!), and … you have Jeff Foxworthy and Kid Rock’s endorsements.

In other news, apparently if your thighs look like the hood of a Toyota minivan after a hailstorm? You might be a redneck?

    Rednecks for Romney?

    • ChernobylSoup

      It's no weirder than Jews for Jesus.

      • actor212

        Listen, at least Jesus WAS a Jew

    • Generation[redacted]

      If you're endorsing any republican this year… you MIGHT be a redneck!

  • johnnyzhivago

    If you think Mitt Romney is going to fix the economy, you're probably a redneck.

    If you think Barack Obama is a Muslim, you're definitely a redneck.

  • nounverb911

    How many rednecks does it take to change a light bulb?

    • Tundra Grifter

      Not as many as it would take to change a President.

    • actor212

      All of them, Katie

    • Exhausted66

      Why'd the nigra' make change to these swirly light bulbs?*

      *Electricity, assumed.

    • Negropolis

      Two. One to twist it in, and one to make sure that he's not twisting it into his butt.

  • Gratuitous World

    if your pandering to any prospective demographic is painfully transparent…you might be a RomBot.

  • hagajim

    You might be a dumb ass…if you vote for Romney.

  • BornInATrailer

    If your dog takes a dump on the roof of your car while you're driving, you might be a Romney.

    • Major Thom


  • FNMA

    Guy isn't even a real redneck. I know some rednecks and they'd all kick his ass.

    • SoBeach

      Foxworthy is no more a redneck than Larry The Cable Guy. They're both just doing basic ethnic humor.

      Larry's funnier though.

  • nounverb911

    Why did the redneck cross the road?

    • SharkSandwich

      To fuck the chicken?

    • LesBontemps

      That's where the Shoney's is?

    • Designer_Rants

      To bomb a Planned Parenthood?

    • Callyson

      Because he was afraid of the black guy down the street.

    • metamarcisf

      Because the government told him not to.

  • SorosBot

    But who's going to get the coveted Larry the Cable Guy endorsement?

    • actor212

      He's been pandering. Remember the joke about Ann and the heavyweight?

      "She went on a diet one time, Little Debbie laid off 500 employees. Last Halloween, she dressed in white, came as a blizzard."

  • hagajim

    At least Jeff Foxworthy, millionaire hillbilly comic, is voting with his pocketbook instead of voting GOP because he's a dumb.

    • Designer_Rants

      If you think you need more tax breaks… You might be a redneck.

  • Tundra Grifter

    Jeff Foxworthy? With all due respect, when it comes to the "C-List" celebs (Jon Voight, Chuck Norris, Ted Nugent, and now this gentleman) the GNoPee has the roster sewn up!

    • actor212

      Whoa! Slow down there, young feller! We ain't heard from Pauly Shore yet!

      • DaRooster

        He'll vote for Ron Paul… because it looks so familiar… Buuuudeeee.

    • Designer_Rants

      I'm not much into the celebrity gossip (except about pols), but what's up with Jolie and Voight? They have probs cuz he's a radical right-winger, or sumthin' else?

    • Abernathy

      Did they all move up to the C list somehow?

      • Tundra Grifter


        Actually, it's the "See List." The guy behind the velvet ropeline looks at his clipboard and sez "Sorry – I see you're not on The List."

  • SorosBot

    Is Mitt smarter than a fifth grader?

  • BornInATrailer

    I suspect at least one member of the Blue Collar comedy tour will not be endorsing any Republican.

    I'm looking at you, Ron White. Tick off a sizable portion of your audience and endorse Obama.

  • superdave

    Whenever I am making a major life choice, I just think "What would Jeff Foxworthy do?" So, I'm good to go.

  • EatsBabyDingos

    This reminds me of the Bill Cosby routine, "The Chickenheart That Ate New York." It is funny as hell, unlike Jeff Foxworthy.

  • BaldarTFlagass

    As Branson goes, so goes the nation.

  • ManchuCandidate

    Meh, I always thought Gary Anthony Williams (aka Uncle Ruckus) was way funnier.

  • actor212

    Jeff Foxworthy is a comic the way Chuck Norris is an economist.

  • LesBontemps

    I'm still waiting to see who Minnie Pearl endorses.

    • BornInATrailer

      Gonna need a shovel to find out.

  • Doktor Zoom

    Are you More Politically Astute Than A 5th Grader?

  • owhatever

    Another influential commentator endorses Mittens. Doo-dah, doo-dah.

  • barto

    Jeff continues to mock his southern brethren, for LULZ!

  • Allmighty_Manos

    Considering that America is growing ever more rural, white and southern each passing year, this is bad news for Obama.

  • Designer_Rants

    Can't fix stupid. Here's your sign.

    • Callyson

      Dammit, this is when this apartment dweller gets jealous of people with yards. Who's going to steal a sign from a third floor window?
      Guess I can take a tip from those redneck T – shirts and add a note to the Obama sign saying "Try burning this one, asshole"…

  • crybabyboehner

    Have you heard the one about the Mormon and the outhouse?

  • savethispatient

    If you vote for Santorum when a comedian told you vote for Romney, you might just be a redneck.

  • UnholyMoses

    According to Ron White, Foxworthy gives out Viagra to his friends despite the fact Foxworthy isn't a doctor or pharmacist (or funny, either). Ron admitted as much during one of his specials.*

    Thus, Mitt now has the endorsement of a felon who can't get a boner without help.

    Mitt should sooo put that up on his website …

    (* Sorry, but Ron's funny as all hell. I know I shouldn't find him such, but … I can't help it.)

    • horsedreamer_1

      He's got a little Lewis Black to him, yes.

    • Jukesgrrl

      I have to admit I've never laughed harder at a comedian I would never have as a friend.

  • Designer_Rants

    In his defense, she did used to be kinda strange. But I can relate to that.

  • fuflans

    jeff foxworthy is not very funny is he?

  • alzronnie

    Here's your comic for that white house correspondents dinner.

  • elviouslyqueer

    Unfunny douchebag vote = LOCKED UP, BITCHES.

  • HobbesEvilTwin

    You might be a dumbass if …

  • WiscDad

    Well…looks like Romney has two votes. Oh wait…I forgot about their collective fan base that would be influenced by their endorsement. The recalculation is…………two votes

  • carlgt1

    it's because Mitt just came out for cheese grits as his VP choice?

  • Tundra Grifter


    I think that is best kept within the family. I don't think it does much good for a father to publically call out a daughter or son.

  • north_of_moscow

    "Mitt Romney is a great leader who can rebuild our economy." Finally, Jeff Foxworthy has come up with another joke.

  • Pop_Socket

    If you get your political opinions from a comedian's social networking…you might be a dumb-ass.

  • Negropolis

    I'm not decidin' 'til I hear who the cast of Mama's Family is endorsing.

  • Jukesgrrl

    "… a great leader who can win the White House and rebuild our economy."

    Emphasis on the word "White."
