Bruce Springsteen endorsed Barack Obama, leading to terrible headlines across this great nation and plenty knee-jerk hipster Boss-hate. Whatevs, guys, Tunnel of Love is a desert island disc. The political question: does it matter? Does Bruce still have blue-collar cred? He's wasted a bit less of it than some celebs have by not blogging on HuffPo or whining about dead polar bears, but he also appeared with John Kerry back in 2004 and we all know how that turned out. Anyway, biggest endorsement since Oprah! But endorsements still don't really matter! Bruce says Barack "speaks to the America I've envisioned in my music for the past 35 years," which is a reference to white people made bitter after their jobs disappear and clinging to god and guns. Those are pretty much the people Bruce sings about when not singing about his wives. After the jump, a collection of utterly terrible Springsteen lyric jokes we removed from this post.

Maybe this will help Obama blow up in Philly next week!

Quite a snub for Hillary, Queen of Arkansas!

The Boss thinks Obama's bus stops at Pennsylvania Avenue!

Springsteen: Obama America's last chance to get daughter in fine romance.

Obama's no hazard from Harvard skunked on beer playin' backyard bombardier!

At night I wake up with the sheets soaking wet and a freight train running through the middle of my head. Only Barack Obama can cool my desire.
