The New York Times reports that martial arts master and pretend Texas Ranger Chuck Norris is again endorsing Mike Huckabee. I think more coverage of Huckabee’s run should just treat the whole thing like campy Vaudeville. If the 2008 campaign was Huckabee’s caricature of himself, this go-round feels more like he’s doing Hollywood Squares.
Norris’s statement to the Times:
I still believe Mike Huckabee is the most qualified. He has the moral clarity and experience to lead our great country forward.
The video above is from the 2008 campaign; I’m sure we’ll get a followup this time around. I propose a gimmick where Norris sings and Tony Orlando tries his hand at kung fu.
