Ten Unlikely Celebrities Who've Endorsed Republican Candidates

With news today that Mitt Romney barely eked out a win over Rick Santorum in his native Michigan, we wonder what would've happened had Romney not recruited fellow Michigander (and supporter) Kid Rock to boost morale?  Kid Rock, who publicly endorsed Romney during a rally the other day, joins several other unlikely celebs who've pitched their tents in the Republican camp.  Ahead of Super Tuesday, we've rounded up the ten most unlikely celebrity endorsements, based both on whom the celebrity is and whom they endorsed (for instance, we've included well-known Republican Kelsey Grammer for his endorsement of the DOA Michele Bachmann campaign but we've kept Chuck Norris' endorsement of Newt Gingrich off the list because, well, that's not so surprising).

6. Megadeth's Dave Mustaine Endorsed Rick Santorum
Mustaine said of the candidate, "
Earlier in the election, I was completely oblivious as to who Rick Santorum was, but when the dude went home to be with his daughter when she was sick, that was very commendable."  But, in one of many instances of celebrity back-tracking, Mustaine alleged he hadn't actually "endorsed" Santorum.  Whatever.

The next president will be Gov Rick Perry...I've never been wrong." Oops.
