Video: Jack Nicholson endorses Clinton
Jack Nicholson took celebrity endorsements to a new level with his recent video endorsement of Hillary Clinton. Nicholson spliced together clips from his movies where the lines could be interpreted as statements which support Clinton, but the whole thing just comes across as weird. From the opening clip of the 'Joker' to the psycho killer in the 'Shining' the whole thing just comes off as a Hollywood star gone wonky. I wonder if Hillary had anything to do with this, if so that's not a good sign.

He was The Joker in Batman, but Jack Nicholson says he wasn't fooling around when he said in "A Few Good Men" that there was nothing sexier than saluting a woman.
Nicholson, who is backing Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton for president, took his endorsement to the Internet on Saturday with a humorous collection of clips that put his support into the mouths of his most film famous characters.
"And now folks, it's time for who do you trust. Hubba, hubba, hubba. Money, money, money," Nicholson, as The Joker, asks his audience in the video titled "Jack and Hill."
Then he goes on to make it clear he puts his in Clinton. He also makes it clear he isn't happy with the current administration.
"Things could be better, Lloyd. Things could be a whole lot better," Nicholson, as frustrated writer Jack Torrance, tells Lloyd the bartender in "The Shining." In the movie, Nicholson's character then goes on a murderous rampage. In the video, a message flashes onscreen saying Clinton "has a plan to deal with the nearly 47 million Americans without health care."
She will also end the Iraq war and restore America's crediblity abroad, the video says after Nicholson, as angry Col. Nathan Jessep in "A Few Good Men," shouts, "Maybe we as officers have a reponsibility to this country to see that the men and women charged with its security are trained professionals."
The video, which debuted early Saturday on YouTube and other file-sharing services was put together with help from director Rob Reiner, said "Jack and Hill" spokesman Yusuf K. Robb.
