THE SHALLOW NORTH MEETS THE DEEP SOUTH  1:20 pm March 12, 2012

GOP Primary/America Over: Jeff Foxworthy Endorses Mitt Romney

by Kaia Mursi

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 March 12, 2012 at 2:25 pm

It's no weirder than Jews for Jesus.

actor212 March 12, 2012 at 2:29 pm

Listen, at least Jesus WAS a Jew

Generation[redacted] March 12, 2012 at 2:28 pm

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

johnnyzhivago March 12, 2012 at 2:13 pm

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 March 12, 2012 at 2:14 pm

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

Tundra Grifter March 12, 2012 at 2:17 pm

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

actor212 March 12, 2012 at 2:28 pm

All of them, Katie

Exhausted66 March 12, 2012 at 2:34 pm

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

*Electricity, assumed.

Negropolis March 13, 2012 at 2:49 am

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

Gratuitous World March 12, 2012 at 2:16 pm

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

hagajim March 12, 2012 at 2:16 pm

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

BornInATrailer March 12, 2012 at 2:16 pm

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

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

SoBeach March 12, 2012 at 3:28 pm

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

Larry's funnier though.

nounverb911 March 12, 2012 at 2:16 pm

Why did the redneck cross the road?

SharkSandwich March 12, 2012 at 2:34 pm

To fuck the chicken?

LesBontemps March 12, 2012 at 2:39 pm

That's where the Shoney's is?

Designer_Rants March 12, 2012 at 3:06 pm

To bomb a Planned Parenthood?

Callyson March 12, 2012 at 3:36 pm

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

metamarcisf March 12, 2012 at 5:09 pm

Because the government told him not to.

SorosBot March 12, 2012 at 2:17 pm

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

actor212 March 12, 2012 at 2:33 pm

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 March 12, 2012 at 2:17 pm

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

Designer_Rants March 12, 2012 at 3:08 pm

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

Tundra Grifter March 12, 2012 at 2:18 pm

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 March 12, 2012 at 2:30 pm

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

DaRooster March 12, 2012 at 2:59 pm

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

Designer_Rants March 12, 2012 at 3:10 pm

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 March 12, 2012 at 7:18 pm

Did they all move up to the C list somehow?

Tundra Grifter March 12, 2012 at 7:29 pm

Abernaty:

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 March 12, 2012 at 2:20 pm

Is Mitt smarter than a fifth grader?

BornInATrailer March 12, 2012 at 2:20 pm

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 March 12, 2012 at 2:22 pm

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

EatsBabyDingos March 12, 2012 at 2:23 pm

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

BaldarTFlagass March 12, 2012 at 2:27 pm

As Branson goes, so goes the nation.

ManchuCandidate March 12, 2012 at 2:30 pm

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

actor212 March 12, 2012 at 2:35 pm

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

LesBontemps March 12, 2012 at 2:36 pm

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

BornInATrailer March 12, 2012 at 2:38 pm

Gonna need a shovel to find out.

Doktor Zoom March 12, 2012 at 2:42 pm

Are you More Politically Astute Than A 5th Grader?

owhatever March 12, 2012 at 2:49 pm

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

barto March 12, 2012 at 2:52 pm

Jeff continues to mock his southern brethren, for LULZ!

Allmighty_Manos March 12, 2012 at 2:56 pm

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

Designer_Rants March 12, 2012 at 2:57 pm

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

Callyson March 12, 2012 at 3:39 pm

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 March 12, 2012 at 3:16 pm

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

savethispatient March 12, 2012 at 3:17 pm

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

UnholyMoses March 12, 2012 at 3:22 pm

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 March 12, 2012 at 9:05 pm

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

Jukesgrrl March 13, 2012 at 6:11 am

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

Designer_Rants March 12, 2012 at 3:24 pm

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

fuflans March 12, 2012 at 3:32 pm

jeff foxworthy is not very funny is he?

alzronnie March 12, 2012 at 3:43 pm

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

elviouslyqueer March 12, 2012 at 3:53 pm

Unfunny douchebag vote = LOCKED UP, BITCHES.

HobbesEvilTwin March 12, 2012 at 4:29 pm

You might be a dumbass if …

WiscDad March 12, 2012 at 4:41 pm

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 March 12, 2012 at 4:46 pm

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

Tundra Grifter March 12, 2012 at 5:06 pm

actor212:

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 March 12, 2012 at 6:06 pm

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

Pop_Socket March 12, 2012 at 6:43 pm

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

Negropolis March 13, 2012 at 2:56 am

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

Jukesgrrl March 13, 2012 at 6:13 am

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

Emphasis on the word "White."
