PBS Members Validated by Obama Endorsement

New Hampshire resident Ken Burns, who gained so much notoriety for using original prints and photographs in film documentaries that Apple named an effect in its iPhoto and iMovie software after him, announced yesterday that he is endorsing Barack Obama for president. Burns stated that "recent events" and the negative tone of the Democratic campaign have compelled him to come forward. "I'm really just disappointed in the tone this campaign has taken on their part," Burns said, referring to Clinton.

Of course, all these C-list celebrity endorsements just make sense: Conservatives love the Jesus-Crusading Chuck Norris, and liberals finally have an emotionally sensitive Mac-using elitist they can get behind.
