Chuck Norris's Pro-Gingrich Robocall Kicks Exactly No Ass

So sorry to have missed this: Noted Newt Gingrich supporter Chuck Norris last week attempted to shore up his candidate's standing ahead of presidential primaries in Southern states including Mississippi and Alabama, contributing his own riff on the automated telecommunications scourge known as the robocall. As you likely know, Gingrich lost. Hell, we all lost.

"As my wife Jean and I watched the GOP debate and went to the website," Norris begins, "we were trying to decide which of the candidates would be best to do head-to-head combat with President Obama. Now, I didn’t say 'hand-to-hand combat,' even though I think they would win there too." Ah, yes, the hoary old "My candidate can beat up your candidate" meme. Classy. And useless, apparently: Despite Norris's endorsement and repeated promises that Gingrich would repeal Obama's health-care law and get gas prices down to $2.50 per gallon, Republicans largely went for Gingrich foil Rick Santorum.

Lesson? Don't bring a Norris to a God-fight.
