Here is one for Kenny, damn it seems like you can’t even trust Rednecks anymore, what is this world coming to?
’Rednecks for Obama’ defy conventional wisdom](http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2008/10/21/MNJM13L4F1.DTL&type=politics)
10-21) 04:00 PDT Rolla, Mo. – Les Spencer is an atypical Barack Obama supporter. He’s a redneck. His buddy Tony Viessman calls himself one, too. Without accessing their inner Jeff Foxworthy, they define redneck as hardworking guys who like to hunt, fish, and maybe pop a beer or two.
“I hunt squirrels, too,” Spencer said, in between drags of bummed Pall Malls on Viessman’s back porch. “And I like eating turtles.”
Spencer and Viessman comprise the sum total of the Rolla, Mo.-born-and-bred “Rednecks for Obama.” Unaffiliated with the Obama campaign, it’s a home-grown shtick the two retirees invented to address what may be Obama’s most serious challenge in becoming commander in chief: winning - or at least not totally losing - the “redneck” vote.
The two retirees have traveled on their own dime to all the debates and the Democratic National Convention to try to convince doubters that Obama is redneck-friendly. “This election is too important,” Viessman said.
