    Looks like they found King Tut's penis. Whew! Now we cal all stop looking. Janine Turner had it all along.

  2. pinkocommi

    I care more about who the Northern Exposure moose would endorse than who Janine Turner would pick.

    I like Clint. I like Steve.
    But old white men shouldn't endorse other old white men.
    It just reminds everyone that the candidate is also old and white, and part of the past.

    But then again, this is Nebraska.

      As a middle-aged white man who my friends keep reminding me is becoming an old white man, I resent your statement, Sir or Madam.

    Navin R. Johnson: And that's the only thing I need is *this*. I don't need this or this. Just this ashtray… And this paddle game. – The ashtray and the paddle game and that's all I need… And this remote control. – The ashtray, the paddle game, and the remote control, and that's all I need… And these matches. – The ashtray, and these matches, and the remote control, and the paddle ball… And this lamp. – The ashtray, this paddle game, and the remote control, and the lamp, and that's all *I* need. And that's *all* I need too. I don't need one other thing, not one… I need this. – The paddle game and the chair, and the remote control, and the matches for sure. Well what are you looking at? What do you think I'm some kind of a jerk or something! – And this. That's all I need.
    And Bob Kerrey.

      True. MrLL worked with him on "Roxanne" and said he was so smart, funny and nice but very quiet.

      1. Gorillionaire

        Sweet. I almost met him at one of this bluegrass band gigs but was a bit star struck and kept my mouth shut. He seemed quiet but affable.

    Steve convinced me. However I never put brads in my crumbled paper wads. I save those for my Halloween cookies.

    1. finallyhappy

      I never knew those things were called brads- I thought brads were very short thin nails that are used in putting rubber heel plates on shoes- but I am not a home craft expert

  6. BloviateMe

    Somewhere out there, an insanely jealous Carrot Top is sitting amidst his props, weeping like a girl, wanting Steve Martin and his much viewed wad of paper to die.

  7. StillGoinGreen

    I endorse the making of a video that finds Steve Martin using Kerrey's peg to beat about the head and neck area of Janine Turner. Now THAT would be worth watching!

  8. 1stNewtontheMoon

    pretty sure Steve's paper-wadding company was shuttered by Mittens after they sold off all the paper and took on $17M in debt to give themselves bonuses for determining paper wadding is done more cheaply in china.

    "Although bleeding profusely and suffering great pain, he displayed outstanding courage and presence of mind in immediately directing his element's fire into the heart of the enemy camp. Utilizing his radio, Lt. (jg.) Kerrey called in the second element's fire support, which caught the confused Viet Cong in a devastating crossfire. After successfully suppressing the enemy's fire, and although immobilized by his multiple wounds, he continued to maintain calm, superlative control as he ordered his team to secure and defend an extraction site. Lt. (jg.) Kerrey resolutely directed his men, despite his near unconscious state, until he was eventually evacuated by helicopter. The havoc brought to the enemy by this very successful mission cannot be over-estimated. The enemy soldiers who were captured provided critical intelligence to the allied effort. Lt. (jg.) Kerrey's courageous and inspiring leadership, valiant fighting spirit, and tenacious devotion to duty in the face of almost overwhelming opposition sustain and enhance the finest traditions of the U.S. Naval Service." From Medal of Honor Citation, Lt.(jg) Joseph Robert Kerrey

    Come on Nebraska. You're not going to vote for a TeaTard over him? Are you?

    1. James Michael Curley

      As a result of the injuries he sustained he lost his leg giving him the opportunity to utter one of the best lines to a nosy reporter delving into his relationship with Debra Winger, "What can I say, she swept me off my foot."

  10. DerrickWildcat

    Deb Fischer is a Teatard that's collected a couple of Million Dollars from the Government for her ranch. Her nickname is Welfare Rancher. Also too, Janine Turner is from Nebraska, that's probably why she's involved.

  11. James Michael Curley

    Give money or, if you live in NE or close by, work on his campaign. I met him several times as a friend worked at the New School. He is one of the most honorable people I ever met and did not deserve the 'Swift Boating' he got by the Bushies. Yep, I know most think of John Kerry, but the Poppy Bush administration started practicing on Bob Kerrey in 1992 when he was in the Presidential primaries I suspect with circulating to the press the "Investigation" conducted by the DoD over the Thanh Phong raid. Did Colin Powell procure a classified document regarding the death of civilians? Who knows? Colin Powell was charged with investigating My Lai only a few months before the Thanh Phong raid. So was it his job while stationed in Vietnam at the time to do these complaints?

  12. GorzoTheMighty

    I live there. So I do, Texan ( pulls down hat, loosens gun in holster, spits tobacco juice on tumbleweed and squints into the sun as the clock signals highnoon).

  13. Negropolis

    Though a very interesting man, Bob Kerrey is not what I'd call a wild and crazy guy.

    It's really too bad he's going to lose to one of the crazies. Poor Nebraska; so close to Kansas, so far from heaven.

    Forget it, Steve. It's Corntown.

  14. bobbert

    Well, at least this will make it less angsty to vote against a Republican war hero (assuming one ever shows up on your ballot).

  15. Serolf_Divad

    I hear Deb Fischer has lined up a Chuck Norris endorsement. The ad is going to feature Norris fighting the disinterred corpse of Bruce Lee and beating him this time.
