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

    • http://simplyleftbehind.blogspot.com/ actor212

      Well! Excuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuse meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

  • nounverb911

    Needs more wild and crazy guys.

  • pinkocommi

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

  • ph7

    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.

    • Toomush_Infer

      I think that's Steve's point…

    • OneDollarJuana

      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.

  • SnarkOff

    Sure, he's great. But can he make balloon animals?

    • Fairtackle

      Yeah, or play the banjo?

    • rickmaci

      Or tell a joke

    Steve Martin can make me laugh without even trying.

    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.

    • delaney_blom

      Nebraskans better hope that Sen. Kerrey isn't going to Washington with special purpose

    • kittensdontlie

      Navin, I'd love you if you were the color of a baboon's ass.

  • nounverb911

    I just buy wads of paper online now.

    • http://simplyleftbehind.blogspot.com/ actor212

      I get mine faxed to me

    • Esteev

      I use the NY Daily News.

    • zerosumgame0005

      tax free!!!!!

  • Schmannnity

    As The Jerk, he endorsed Romney.

  • Baconzgood

    I think I did it wrong. I'm pregnant now.

    • Esteev

      Did you use up all your paperclips?

    • zerosumgame0005

      did you soften up the gum first?

    Who says white cracks? Steve has looked the same age since 1980!

    • Limeylizzie

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

      • shelwood46

        OMG. What is Michael J. Pollard really like?

        • Limeylizzie

          I will inquire.

      • 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.

  • http://simplyleftbehind.blogspot.com/ actor212

    I saw this on the Tweeter and laughed.

  • YouBetcha

    Your move, Wayne and Garth.

  • KeepFnThatChicken

    But who is Gallagher endorsing?

  • Allmighty_Manos

    Makes sense considering no one is wilder and crazier than Bob Kerrey.

  • Jus_Wonderin

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

    • 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

  • Radiotherapy

    Wouldn't an empty chair as a prop been easier?

  • edgydrifter

    Dane Cook will release an identical endorsement video in 45 minutes.

    • Esteev

      I know, he's so funny!

      • http://simplyleftbehind.blogspot.com/ actor212

        And completely original!

    • Negropolis

      Poor, Kerrey. He never had a chance. lol

  • Baconzgood

    MORE CANS!!!!!!!!!!

  • 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.

  • Come here a minute

    Who is Johnny Carson endorsing?

    • sudsmckenzie

      Who is black, plays basketball, and doesn't preform well at high altitudes?

      • http://loljazzcatz.blogspot.com/2012/06/introducing-bad-note-millstones-of-jazz.html Chet Kincaid_

        Karl Malone in the '97 and '98 NBA Finals?

      • Negropolis

        Ron Brown?

        Too soon?

  • 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!

  • http://intensedebate.com/people/mrblifil mrblifil

    In support of Bob Kerrey? He really is a jerk.

  • WhatTheHeck

    I can see his ad for Obama. It starts out: “I was born a poor black child…”

  • Esteev

    But can he play the piano and sing?

  • Baconzgood

    NEEDZ MOAR PIZZA IN A CUP!!!!!!!!!!

  • DonnyKerabotsos

    Not bad, although he was rambling a bit.

    • HarryButtle

      I see what you did there (because I'm old enough).

      Now shut the fuck up, Donny.

  • 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.

  • rickmaci

    "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?

    • 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."

    • http://inappropriatejobpostings.blogspot.com/ fuflans

      i just read his bio and KNEW knew his opponent was going to be a bagger.

      sounds like he's a long shot.

      rock on america.

    • HistoriCat

      I think we all learned in 2004 that all military citations from Vietnam are suspect.

  • C_R_Eature

    Steve Martin must be high on Placebos again.

    • http://wonkette.com Lionel[redacted]Esq

      Wish I could score me some of those Placebos.

  • mavenmaven

    Watching that endorsement, I got small!

  • ThundercatHo

    He has only to ask. *swoon*

  • http://www.flickr.com/photos/30500320@N06/ 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.

    • GorzoTheMighty

      Not to mention that she is ethically challenged.

    • http://www.southsidejohnny.com/ Jukesgrrl

      Now that Janine can cry thanks to her endorsed tear-making pharmaceutical, I hope she ends up with something to cry about on Nov. 6.

    • http://inappropriatejobpostings.blogspot.com/ fuflans

      is she seriously wildly ahead in the polls?

  • calliecallie

    The new phonebooks are here! The new phonebooks are here!

    NEEDS MOAR WINE!

    That is the saddest wine rack I have ever seen (and I am something of an authority on the subject)

  • 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?

  • Texan_Bulldog

    I call bullshit. NO ONE cares about the people of Nebraska.

  • 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).

  • AtwatersGhost

    Moar Banjo!

  • 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.

  • 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).

  • 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.

  • ttommyunger

    "I heard you was dead!" Nope, I was only in Nebraska.
