Rock the Vote

Chris Rock appeared at a Tampa, Fla., rally for Obama:

From the St. Petersburg Times: Rock “joked that on Halloween, he took his kids trick-or-treating to all of Sen. John McCain’s houses. “There was way too many houses,” he said, as the crowd laughed. “…McCain was on MTV’s Cribs 15 times. This is not the guy you want to be president.”

“McCain probably had financial problems too, but we can’t all do what he did. We can’t all dump our first wife, marry a rich one and have all our bills paid.”

Obama was, of course, not present.
