Chuck Norris Says...

Unless you having been living under a rock the last few years, you have ran across the cult phenomenon of Chuck Norris facts. Here is a list of a few just in case you have been deprived:

- Chuck Norris' tears cure cancer. Too bad he has never cried.
- Chuck Norris can win a game of Monopoly without owning any property.
- There is no theory of evolution, just a list of creatures Chuck Norris allows to live.
- Chuck Norris can divide by zero.

There are MANY, MANY more. You can Google search Chuck Norris facts but be warned not all are very clean or for all audiences.

He also appears to have a great sense of humor about this and wrote an article of what Chuck Norris would do if he was elected President. Here are a few of his agenda items:

- Cut spending by dismissing the Secret Service, at least for my 8 years (why would I need them?).
- Resurrect Bruce Lee and appoint him head of homeland security (OK, the CIA and FBI too).
- Create new immigration legislation: to deport all liberals (then force them to listen to Bill O'Reilly every day for five years, at which point they may return).
- Make all Chuck Norris facts come true (well, not quite all of them - I'm a happily married man!)

There are several more here and they are well worth the read for a good laugh.

Well now Chuck has decided to weigh into the Presidential race and it is not a joke. He has written an excellent article endorsing Mike Huckabee as his choice for President.

I'm also glad to hear that Huckabee has completely rejected the idea of any participation in a 3rd party run if Rudy is the nominee because in his own words that would only aide in electing Hillary. Read more here on his thoughts on the topic.

However, for another perspective, enter John Fund, who on matters of politics will definitely carry a lot more weight with conservatives. He is not sold on the idea that Huckabee, based on his record, is the best choice for conservatives. Should Fund now fear Norris coming in the middle of the night to take him out for daring to defy Chuck Norris.

Frankly, I don't much care what Chuck Norris thinks. Though he did a great job presenting Mike Huckabee's qualifications, and I do not dismiss them, he presented only one side of the story.

John Fund presents the other.

Phyllis Schlafly, president of the national Eagle Forum, is even more blunt. "He destroyed the conservative movement in Arkansas, and left the Republican Party a shambles," she says.

If there is such a thing as a "true conservative" it would be Mrs. Schlafly. In 1983 I was introduced to her by the late Congressman John Ashbrook, another "true conservative" for whom I was working at the time.

There are as many good points and bad points about Huckabee to consider as there are about Rudy or Fred or Hunter, Romney and even McCain.

I prefer to stress the good points of each of these candidates, as they are ALL infinitely better than Hillary Clinton.

But I do want to beat on the importance of the pledge to support the eventual nominee. If anyone wants to ask me to consider voting for their candidate they have to pledge to support whoever wins.

If not, go away!

Correction: introduced to Mrs. Schlafly in 1982!

Schlafly is definitely an icon in the conservative movement and along with Fund, her comments will carry a lot of weight.

Funny, how you are seriously having a debate involving Chuck Norris. If he ran for office, I think Clint might actually vote without me threatening him HAHA!

I love Chuck Norris facts. Did you know that if Chuck Norris fell into the lake, he wouldn't get wet? The water would get Chuck Norris!!! He also doesn't have a chin under that beard, its a third fist.

I just found 2 more devastating articles about Huckabee. In my eyes he is going down in flames but then I never held him in very high esteem.

Also, you do realize that while Norris is a tough guy he is no match for Jack Bauer??? LOL :-) I remember seeing that as one of the posts at Blogs for Bauer.
