Obama picks up key endorsement

It looks like yet another entertainment industry figure is backing Barack, though in this instance, he might not really want the support:

Today The Times' eagle-eyed Harriet Ryan spotted Phil Spector, the famous rock entrepreneur and infamous date, showing up for a court hearing in Los Angeles wearing a very obvious "Barack Obama Rocks" pin.

Spector, you may recall, has some continuing legal troubles having to do with an actress, Lana Clarkson, turning up dead in his house after a date five years ago.

Spector says she shot herself. The prosecution suggests otherwise. A jury could not decide.

So a second second-degree murder trial is set to begin on Sept. 29, pending a higher court ruling on the presiding judge. Meanwhile, Spector and every one of those "hairs" on his head is behind Barack.

Actually, this could be a big deal for Obama. I mean, from what I've heard, the all-important murder suspect vote is still up in the air.  And he'd better snap them up quick, too, before they join the non-voting felons bloc.  After all, those guys only vote about half of the time.
