Git-R-Elected 

Joe Cooper, who's run for more offices than Time-Warner has channels, said Saturday that he hopes to avail himself of the services of Dan Whitney (a.k.a. Larry the Cable Guy), the standup comic who stars in a new movie, Larry the Cable Guy: Health Inspector, directed by Cooper’s son Trent.

sCandidate Cooper says he wants Whitney, who’s been featured lately on the Don Imus show, The Tonight Show, and other national TV venues, to do robo-calls (automated telephone messages) for Cooper’s current campaign, a race for the District 5 county commission seat.

No mention of Whitney’s position on bison at Shelby Farms or whether the comic might sign a lifetime contract for races Cooper has yet to run.
