Endorsement Watch: Former Texas Rep. Ken Bentsen endorsed Hillary… Army Major General Antonio M. Taguba (ret.) endorsed Hillary… Actor, activist, and “Lord of the Rings” star Sean Astin endorsed Hillary.
Why mention Astin’s character as a Hobbit when there’s the underdog-steel mill-to-Notre Dame hero of Rudy? Is Hillary ceding the blue-collar vote to Obama in exchange for the teenage-boy-geek demographic that idolizes the warrior ethos of the mighty Hobbit?
But here’s the best part–what kind of activist is Sean Astin? What could possibly be the one thing to be an activist for that would turn off many Texans and Ohioans? You got it–he’s a plant person.
I suspect Barack Obama will be celebrating winning Texas and Ohio with a nice big steak in Astin’s honor.
