I generally disregard celebrity endorsements, but Mike Rowe is a bit different from your average celebrity. He isn’t one to demand Dom Perignon in his dressing room or lord his fame over his production staff or anybody else. He gets dirty and celebrates working hard. He seems to get the American work ethic in a way that very few do, certainly very few in Washington. Rowe is basically the most famous blue collar guy on TV. He’ll be a good asset for the Romney team.
