Anyone who as ever lived within 100 miles of Denver should know that, in Colorado, this is one step shy of getting an endorsement from God.

Paul Begala, however, was not impressed.

Really? It’s John Elway, former NFL superstar, head of an NFL franchise, source of pride for an entire state,  and all-around local demigod. Why wouldn’t he have a Bentley?!

Another group of people seemed to seriously think Elway would be an electoral liability in the key state of Ohio, thanks to lingering memories of his last-second heroics against the Cleveland Browns in 1987.

Of course, Cleveland is probably already a lost cause for Romney. The other half of Ohio is Bengals country. Bengals fans loathe the Browns; they should be loving this almost as much as Denver is.
