Latest Obama advocates: Opie, Andy Griffith, Fonz


As the election nears, Ron Howard is getting desperate.

In a video posted Thursday on, the actor-turned-director reprises his role on "The Andy Griffith Show" as a way to rally support for Barack Obama.

While speaking into the camera, Howard has his beard shaved, dons a youthful red wig and puts on the kind of outfit he would have only worn as Opie Taylor in the `60s.

"I've never done this before and I hope never to do it again, but I guess you could say I'm feeling pretty desperate these days," explains Howard. "So as a demonstration of my sincerity, this is for you America."

Here's the link to the story

And here's the video.


Ron Howard, Henry Winkler and Andy Griffith go back in time and promote Obama. It sure was different...
Not something I'd expect to see as a promotional video.

People in Hollywood support Obama? You got to be kidding me!

I am in total shock over this!

I get a great jolt out of the views of the entertainment industry, who provided much of the distraction while the system was raping us. Ever hear the expression "shut up and sing!"?

Nothing could be more true. I get such a jolt. Especially when thug entertainers try to suddenly go legit once they have wisdom in their bank accounts. There may be one or two exceptions somewhere but first I would like to get a *pre-androgen* hair sample.

Besides Charlton Heston and Ted Nugent, I don't think there's been a single example of a good endorsement in history. Then again, the "Oi !" energizer guy (JACKO) from the mid 80's was onto something too.

Seeing the original Andy and Opie together again like that was
weird. I thought Andy Griffin had gone to Mayberry in the sky
a long time ago.

That was a strange way to endorse Obama, but hey, this is of the free and creative!
