Huckabee Endorsements and the Cringe Factor

Wooooo! No, that is not another shot of Guiliani in drag. Hide your women and your liquor. Much-sequined former Wrestler "The Nature Boy" Ric Flair has endorsed Mike Huckabee for President.
At the risk of Chuck Norris killing me with one of his beard-hairs, I find Mike Huckabee's latest attempts to capitalize on his celebrity endorsements to be embarrassing.

I believe Chuck Norris is a great human being. I agree with him on most issues, and I even liked some of his work, but the commercial with Huckabee is embarrassingly silly. It also shows that Huckabee is a WAAYYY better actor than Norris. As far as Chuck's on-screen work went, I always thought that he was great in the fight scenes, but needed to have a stunt-man come in for him to do the acting. This commercial highlights that. Huckabee is the better actor of the two by far. He has been acting like he was a conservative while governing as a nanny-state liberal for years.

I don't know what the rest of America will think of us after getting a heavy dose of Huckabee's dodge-and-weave laugh-track campaign, but I doubt it will be "whatever Chuck Norris wants them to think".

As far as I know, yours was the first. Look a few threads down and see if you don't remember the comments from that story.

Those ads are going over very well up here. Most of the people with whom I speak find them very humorous.

Huck's surge in Iowa is very real.

Thank you for the report from Iowa Spoorer. I believe you, but am amazed. We have gone a long way down since the McKinley-Jennings race scarcely over 100 years ago. That race was over as complicated an issue as de-valuing the currency by switching from mostly gold-backed dollars to a more even mix of gold and silver. Today, the feds give slips of paper with no real value and voters guffaw at cheesy gag commercials while their currency implodes.

If I were an Iowan, I wouldn't brag about that commercial doing well. But then again, I'm from Arkansas- and Huck is the third socialist politician we've offered to the nation in the last 2 decades.
