Chuck Norris Still Thinks Newt Gingrich Can Be President

It was cute a few weeks ago, but now it's just sort of embarrassing: "As a six-time undefeated middleweight world karate champion, I have a pretty good idea what makes a warrior. And there’s presently one particular presidential candidate in the political ring who wears those gloves better than the others. Even when he’s knocked down, he has astounding agility and rebound. It’s one thing to enter a ring with a single opponent, but what if you had to enter with three: one candidate with unlimited reservoirs of wealth and two titans of political swing to back him? That is exactly what former Speaker Newt Gingrich is facing right now." [WND]

    Gingrich IS a bit like that, though. I think of him kind of as a baby-boomer who just won't acquit himself to this new age. Of course his politics are rancid, but is America really in a better state of mind if it chooses one or another version of Downton Abbey (not about riches, but about gentry demeanor) over rugged middleweight, MIDDLE-AMERICAN Chuck Norris? As with Hillary in 2008, it feels a bit like with Gingrich that at least someone out there is serving to niggle into American conscience a reminder that they are deliberating bypassing the fighter, someone who actually had to run a race, for someone who might as well have been annointed. They are usefully telling Americans that in enacting a King's Speech/Downton Abbey society -- being the TRUE motor behind it -- they are going somewhere very bad.

    Yes, the most important thing in picking a candidate is how much he's like a martial arts fighter! His politics certainly shouldn't come into play at all!!!

    And Chuck Norris still thinks a hardcore action movie can be PG-13. Time to take your meds, Chuck.
