Primary Endorsements: Who's Backing Whom

John Kerry (Scott Wolf, Blink 182, Jamie Lee Curtis, Uma Thurman)

Scott Wolf a.k.a. Bailey Sallinger was a surprise supporter here. Considering that Wolf played a teenager until he was 34, you'd think he would've ended up in the similarly visaged John Edwards' camp. Jennifer Love Hewitt is currently undecided.





Blink 182 is working on a campaign theme song that combines the strategy of the Kerry campaign with a juvenile bodily function reference ala their hilarious "Take Off Your Pants and Jacket." Current working title..."Gotta Go To The John Kerry Lever and Drop a Vote."




With the seductive nods of Jamie Lee Curtis and Uma Thurman, Kerry is the clear leader among MILF voters, a segment that could prove crucial as November approaches

"Bubbie," they'll say, "how could this happen in America? How could there be toddlers sleeping on the ground without blankets, without soap or toothbrushes to clean themselves?"

"I don't know. I wish I had done more. I'm ashamed," I'll say. We will all have to answer for this atrocity. But some of us will have to answer more than others. Not just the archvillains like Stephen Miller and John Kelly, but the people who kept right on doing their jobs, even as those jobs morphed into defending concentration camps.
