Republicans just love getting endorsements from washed-up, kinda sorta celebrities from decades past. Chuck Norris, Ted Nugent, Pat Boone — politicians actually work to try to get their endorsements (I presume there are a lot of votes in Branson, Missouri). Bobby Jindal has just scored a plum endorsement.
The Hill spoke to Sorbo at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Friday.
The actor, who became famous for the Hercules television series in the mid-90s, said Jindal has a few scenes playing himself in the forthcoming movie Caged, that focuses on human trafficking.
“I think he’d be a great candidate,” Sorbo said of Jindal. “I like the fact that he’s a strong-valued man and he speaks his mind, we need that. I just agree with what he said the other day that the Republican Party needs to find a spine.”
Actually, Sorbo said he might support Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin as well. I imagine he’s waiting to see which one can act dumber over the next few months to give a final endorsement. Now I’ll be on pins and needles waiting to hear which candidate is endorsed by the guy who played the goofy neighbor on Home Improvement.
