MC Hammer to get out vote for Jerry McNerney

By Josh Richman
Tuesday, October 30th, 2012 at 3:52 pm in 2012 Congressional Election, Jerry McNerney, U.S. House.

Hammer pantsCapping our day of entertainment-themed weirdness (East Coast looks like “The Day After Tomorrow!” Disney buys Lucasfilm, will make “Star Wars Ep. VII!” ABC to make Oakland “City Hall” drama!) comes this tidbit: singer and artist MC Hammer (nee Stanley Burrell) will help lead a canvass on Monday in Stockton in support of Rep. Jerry McNerney and Stockton City Council candidate Michael Tubbs.

Hammer, 50, lives in Tracy, which actually is just outside the 9th Congressional District in which McNerney, D-Stockton, is seeking re-election.

As when Hammer lent his skills to San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee’s campaign, this raises some questions: Is McNerney actually too legit to quit? Can Ricky Gill not touch this? Which candidate needs to pray just to make it Tuesday?

We’ll know soon enough.

    Wow! That’ll tip the balance for sure!

    Is MC Hammer the oldest living rapper?

  • Common Tater

    Jerry gets Hammer.

    Jerry gets hammered.

    Synchronicity in action.

  • John W

    Seems right up there with Romney getting Meat Loaf.

    Guess The Boss wasn’t available.

  • Patty O’Day

    I am sure all the farmers in Stockton will line up to see Hammer.
