A vote for Obama is a vote for Stephen Baldwin to move to Canada

Still not sure whether to cast your vote for Obama or McCain this fall? Well, if you’re part of Upper Grandview actor Stephen Baldwin’s flock, the GOP supporter (who supported Mike Huckabee in the primaries) would like you to know he’s throwing all of his evangelical endorsement power behind John McCain.

But that’s not all. He’s also vowed, in an interview with Fox News, to move to Canada if Barack Obama is elected.

Consider that reason No. 2,304 to vote for the Illinois Senator.

Of course, it’s worth noting that another Baldwin bro, Alec, made the same kind of bizarre threat back in 2000, vowing to head north if George W. Bush won the election. And unless “30 Rock” is filmed in Vancouver, I’m pretty sure he didn’t stick to his guns.

Also, Stephen crossed his fingers while making the pledge and joked “let the media have fun with that,” so he likely wasn’t serious. Still, the prospect of an ex-pat Stephen Baldwin in Canada does actually make a little more sense. I hear acting gigs are far easier to come by in Vancouver these days.
