A sober assessment: Jared Allen endorses John McCain

Jared Allen, the Vikings' recently-acquired hard-drinking (and driving) quarterback-crushing machine was on hand at the Xcel Center Tuesday evening to support his candidate for president.

"As a professional athlete, I'm in a higher tax bracket," Allen explained of his political leanings. "Also, I'm a big supporter of gun rights."

Allen is also from Arizona, so McCain is completely his man. But we were curious: Does he ever talk politics with his teammates?

"Sure we do. Of course. Everybody has an opinion."

Who does he get into it with the most?

"Gus Frerotte and I mix it up a lot. I think he's a Democrat."
