Hulk Hogan is a towering figure in American politics. So it’s not surprising that Barack Obama sought his blessing. This is, after all, the man who ended the Cold War by saying “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down that wall, brother!,” before taking the big boot / leg drop combination to the entire Soviet Army. We’re eagerly awaiting Hulkster’s endorsement this time around, because we basically always vote the way he tells us. Note that Obama has still failed on his pledge to make training, prayers and vitamins mandatory for all public school students.
We’re not really sure this needs to be elaborated on. The joke pretty much writes itself. John McCain was also able to secure the endorsement of Craigslist founder Craig T. Nelson, but it was all for naught.
This is pretty much obligatory. Ted Nugent is the patron saint of insane celebrities and no list of political endorsements would be complete without him. In 2008, he endorsed the Republican ticket because of Sarah Palin. While the rest of the country stood slackjawed in horror at “You betcha!,” Ted Nugent took a principled stand, supporting Sarah Palin’s policy of training our nation’s armed forces to hunt wolves from airplanes.
