Huckabee and Norris, redux

Concord, NH -

I am at school right now so I can't watch the video nor properly post it, but the mere description of Huckabee's latest move has compelled me to post something, ANYTHING, to get this out there.

Video and text are in that link. Let's face it, folks, somebody from the union needs to look into the accusation that Huckabee has hired scabs off of the Hollywood screenwriters picket line.

Myth: Chuck Norris' tears can cure cancer. Too bad he has never cried.

Fact: The myth of Chuck Norris is now officially out of control.

All the MSM buzz is that this was a mistake on Huckabee's part. Having just seen the light of the front of the pack, they surmise, a hokey ad like this will only keep voters from taking him seriously. That was my first instint as well, but after a few moments of martial artist-style concentration, I think this could be sort of like Jesse Ventura's ads from 1998 that portrayed him as a wrestling action figure fighting special interests. We all know how that turned out.

"But this is for President," the MSM says with a smug whine.

Ah, yes, but it is also only the Iowa primary. Think about that one.

This is fantastic! Unfortunately I wold rather have Chuck Norris as president (or just about anyone) than Mike Huckabee. I hope your posting system is working now, I've been trying to post a bunch lately but haven't been able to. I'm sure thousands of others have been having the same problem.
