McCain counters Powell endorsement with thumbs up from soap opera actress

Yesterday, Colin Powell endorsed Barack Obama for president. The McCain campaign fired back with an endorsement of their own: Telenovela soap opera actress Katie Barberi. Hardly a comparable endorsement but obviously the best McCain can come up with these days. The actress, a Mexican-American, announced her endorsement and then hit the campaign trail with Joe Lieberman in Florida.

Barberi has about as much political relevance as McCain's running mate Sarah
