You have to hand it to Barack Obama. He really knows how to reel in the celebrity vote. He's won over actors like Ben Affleck and Scarlett Johansson, athletes like Charles Barkley and Emmitt Smith, and musicians like Toby Keith. When you add these names to the list of plain — pwffa$@!&?!
Wait a minute! Did I really just say Toby Keith??
Wow, I guess I did…
"I thought it was beautiful the other day when Obama went to Afghanistan and got educated about Afghanistan and Iraq. He came back and said some really nice things," Keith remarked.
"So as far as leadership and patriotism goes, I think it's really important that those things have to take place. And I think he's the best Democratic candidate we've had since Bill Clinton. And that's coming from a Democrat."
You'd think the Zell Millers of the party would have broken me in by this point.

A Republican official tells The Associated Press that Connecticut Sen. Joe Lieberman will be speaking at the Republican National Convention.
The GOP official said Wednesday that Lieberman would deliver a speech as Republicans gathered in St. Paul to nominate John McCain for president. The official requested anonymity because he wasn't authorized to make an announcement.
Now there's a duel Chris Matthews could win.
