Steve Martin Endorses Bob Kerrey (VIDEO)

Actor and comedian Steve Martin is showing his support for Nebraska senate candidate Bob Kerrey with a video touting the Democrat as a "wise and thoughtful choice."

The video shows Martin, self-proclaimed "home crafts expert," demonstrating how to make a wad of paper. While Martin never says a word about Kerrey, series of messages come into view explaining Martin's support for the Democrat:

"My friend, Bob Kerrey, is running for the US Senate in Nebraska.

He is a principled man whom I have known and respected for many years.

Whether you are a Democrat or Republican he deserves your vote, because...

...he cares about the people of Nebraska...

...he considers both sides of every issue to determine what is best...

...and, he has already served Nebraska successfully as your governor and senator for 16 years.

But most of all...

He is sane. And his ideas are workable.

Please consider Bob Kerrey as a wise and thoughtful choice as your senator from Nebraska.

Also, please consider me as your home crafts authority."

Kerrey is running against Republican state Senator Deb Fischer, a ranch owner who was elected to the Legislature in 2004. Fischer has received endorsements from former Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin and former GOP presidential hopfeul Herman Cain.
