Pamela Anderson's very first time: She'll mark XXX for Obama

This'll be the first time for Pamela Anderson.

The actress, who is most famous for her film role not acting, will be casting her initial ballot as a U.S. citizen this November. You're right, she doesn't look very Canadian. But she used to be one.

She's now officially endorsed Barack Obama, who isn't Canadian either.

She did it on national TV -- twice. Most recently on "The View," when she said, "Yes, I can vote. First time. Obama!" And then she flashed a thumbs up, which is Canadian for "No more snow for me."

It was an exciting moment on daytime television. As usual, our sister blogger, the inevitable or inimitable -- we always confuse those words -- Elizabeth Snead, has some more of the celebrity details over here on the Dish Rag.

Meanwhile, so you'll recognize her when you get there, here's a before-voting photograph of Pamela Anderson with her large pair of sunglasses. No doubt a discreet way of hiding her identity on the streets of New York. No one would ever recognize her disguised this way. We'll try to remember to publish an after-vote shot come November.
