Why Obama is Getting My Vote For Sure

Because he just got the endorsement of the Grateful Dead, of course! From the SFist,

Those goddamn, dirty, lovable hippies known as the Grateful Dead — i.e., Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, and Phil Lesh — reunite tonight in honor of (our future president) Barack Obama.

And from SFgate,

The battle to capture California’s “gray-haired ponytail vote” may be over: The Grateful Dead, less Jerry, is endorsing Barack Obama.

Tickets were sold out instantly, of course. But you don’t have to grovel around the Warfield entrance begging scalpers or try to sneak in the back exits.

 You can watch it streamed live at www.iclips.net at 7:30 p.m, Left Coast time. The lineup: Mickey Hart, Phil Lesh, Bob Weir will be joined by Jackie Greene, John Molo and Steve Molitz.

What: Deadheads for Obama
Where: The Warfield
When: Tonight, 7:30 p.m.
