Chuck Norris tells America how it’s gonna’ be.

We have almost a full year to go before the 2008 elections in the US, but already our potential presidential candidates are in full campaign mode.

I’m not much of a political junky, but this campaign spot, scheduled to hit the Iowan airwaves today, was just too amazing to not pass on.

It comes from oddball Republican Mike Huckabee...

...and it was all made possible by the "prayers and sacrificial givings" of his dedicated supporters (see his official blog).

What's not to love about American politics?

 (I'm not sure the youtube linked worked...but the video can also be viewed here.)

i like mike,

because he used to be fat and now he's thin and fit and because he supports free trade, like me (trade, not the fat thing).

If Arnold can be the Gouverner of California, Regan the most reveared Republican President in the past century, why can't Chuck Norris (aka Walker Texas Ranger) be a political animal as well ?
There is however a very shot list of Hollywood actors that will support anything Republican. Chuck might be a default.

Hilary

Lucy, USA might get female President some 35 years after bigest democracy India did and 30 years after UK! Indians also had all religions represented while only JFK was Catholic. Probably too early for Black President. Dull it isn't...

Jan. 20th, 2009 - the end of an error

BTW last week we selected professional diplomat and international law expert for Slovenian President.

Re: Hilary

You really arent comparing properly. India, the UK and many other countries don't elect the presidents dirrectly.
They elect the political party to parliment, which in turn votes for the president. The labor party was Elected in the UK, not female Margaret Thacher. Same goes for Indira Ghandi and more recently Benazir Bhuto in Pakistan.

That bein said - a non-white, non-male US president is Long overdue.

Re: Hilary

Thatcher was conservative, not labour, and she was a leader of Conservative Party for four years before she was elected prime minister, so yes, people knew they were voting for a woman to hold the top position in the country.

BTW, non-male is female, or am I missing something :)?

I like Chuck

He is a cool dude. God bless us if he is to point out our future. It would be cool if he comes as ambassador to Sarajevo or Belgrade so he can go to pay his respects to Bruce Lee's monument as a friend and American official with all that proper parade of soldiers and flowers like they usually do on real monuments. He would be the most loved American ambassador in "ex-yu" ever, and we would simply call him "dlakavi"(hairy).

Re: I like Chuck

Bad actor can become a bad politician. Bed politician is always a bad actor. We, the people are one sick and tiered audience.

...

I'd vote for him if I had voting rights. Chucktatorship is way better than democracy in which president can sign a document and then append "fine, I'll sign this, but that doesn't mean I'll uphold this". Those who've seen Chaney's law know what it's all about.

Nobody should forget about Chuck's best line: "I step wherever I please. And that includes your face, you freakin' idiot."

ron paul revolution

what exactly is amazing about it?

What's not to love about American politics?

perhaps its boundless superficiality?

and despite the appearance of a jolly moron, huckabee is basically a fascist.

Ooops

I just can't figure out Huckabee's target audience.
Pretty scary....
