Brett Favre Stars In Ad For Mississippi Senator (Video)

Brett Favre may throw his own hat into the political ring one day, but for now he’ll settle for endorsing other people. The former Vikings QB is currently starring in a spot on behalf of Mississippi senator Thad Cochran, who on Tuesday will be squaring off with Chris McDaniel in a Republican primary runoff election.

Favre is rugged. Favre is manly. Favre is rural. And Favre has thankfully trimmed his beard, otherwise he might have come off just a little too Duck Dynasty.

It’s good to be a bit rustic in politics, but you don’t want to overdo it. There’s a fine line between backwoods and crazy.

Favre’s beard says, “I like to hunt and fish and be in the woods, but I can also clean myself up and hang out in civilization.” The longer, scragglier beard says something else. It says, “I spend much of my time in a small cabin in the depths of the swamp, plotting the overthrow of the government with help from aliens who speak to me telepathically.”

Full Unabomber is not a good look. Favre was close for awhile there. But he’s come back to us. He looks like a guy who buys a lot of fertilizer, but uses it for actual fertilizing, not building car bombs.

    I prefered the longer, scragglier beard that said I belong to the Tea Party.

    Another worthless, pointless article that has absolutely nothing to do with Vikings football from our resident gossip columnist. You’re a fucking worthless writer Zinksi.

    Why should I care if Bret Farve is doing a commercial for a RINO republican?
    Are you trying to support this has been dope of a Senator because he is going to lose in the upcoming run off?
