A creative endorsement, with nostalgia.

There have been some unusual endorsements so far this election, like Colin Powell, Christopher Buckley, and Scott McClellan. But the one below gets high marks for style and originality! If you can't trust Opie or Richie Cunningham, who can you trust? How about Sheriff Andy Taylor and the Fonz? Aaaaaaaay.

jeni - there are a lot of ways to try to get your message across. This one is well done, funny, and earnest.

thewritegirl - I saw your post at SSD, and had seen this on numerous political blogs. It is kind of sweet.

dianne - making your message entertaining is a great way to give it an audience. It was fun to watch those characters again.

Wow, opie got cute.

Off topic, sorry, hope the adult beverages numb the pain of this afternoon.

jennylu - I thought he was always cute.

dave - my tailgating buzz wore off pretty damn quick during that game. I kept waiting for the offense (or defense) to kick into gear and it never happened. I guess we found out our coach is a mere mortal after all. Our play calling on offense was terribly predictable (if I can figure out what is coming next, it is safe to assume the opposing coach has also figured it out). I'll be ignoring the sports page tomorrow... grumble*grumble*grumble
