    Sometimes I see something and I say to the world "world, are you really serious?" and inevitably the world replies "yep, 'fraid so".

    I mean, okay, I live in Ireland so I don't really get a say in it, but who would vote for someone as-their-president who tries to use an internet meme to get votes? What's that, issues you say?! Pa-Shaw! He has chuck norris on his side, and one time I saw this really funny site about him, so he gets my vote!

    "Really, world, are you really like that? Really? Say it ain't so...it can't work like that, can it?"
    "You know what I'm gonna say..."
    "Just...just forget it, world. I don't wanna hear it..."

    Surely this isn't news to all you dear, sweet people? For all his many faults, George Bush Sr is nowhere near as stupid as his son... and he went on Letterman before the '92 election in his nice, blue suit and talked about taxation. Grinning Bill came on in jeans and shades and played sax with the house band. Bread and circuses, y'know?

    Probably won't hear anymore after this.

    Contented.

    "No one wants Hill to be a victim."

    She already played the role of victim, remember the whole right wing conspiracy thing?

    On the lighter side, if you think Huck is funny - then look at this.

    And now, as if there was any doubt to begin with (there wasn't):

    Bill Brasky > Chuck Norris

    Chuck Norris is an idiot. I've never liked that guy, nor understood the machismo cult surrounding him.

    Mike Huckabee is a lunatic young-earther. While I do believe there shouldn't be any religious test to become president, a test to see if you possess a minimal level of intelligence would be nice.

    Well there is my dose of Cognitive Dissonance for the day.

    Lets not even give sound bites, just Chuck Norris jokes.... It truly is a new low for American politics.

    Too true, though one part of me wonders if we do that, would we have anyone left? :|

    Me? :) Just kidding, obviously. I don't mean they have to have a high level of intelligence, they just need to be able to understand basic facts of the universe: IE the earth is really fucking old.

    I just showed this to my wife, and she is now scouring the internet for more Chuck Norris jokes.

    The worst point in the 2008 Presidential Race was when Doug Stanhope was bounced out of running for the Libertarian campaign.

    Sadly, American comedy died with Bill Hicks. RIP.


    No American comedy since Bill Hicks?

    That's awesome! I just can't make that funny shit like that up.

    Thanks.

    I propose Christopher Walken for Ron Paul, Samuel L. Jackson for Barack Obama, and Rupaul for Hilary Clinton.


    Isn't Oprah already making sure her book club is gonna vote for Obama?

    I weep for the political future of my country.

    As long as the American people can be easily convinced that the President should be "just a regular Joe" instead of someone who is exceptional and is a leader, we're screwed. i want someone exceptional and intelligent to lead this country, if I wanted a regular Joe, I'd run and that would be a disaster. Except for appointing Warren as US Poet Laureate, that would be cool.

    on second thought, I'm not a regular Joe, I actually read several books a year - understand, at least on a rudimentary level, some science and am not out to get rich quick. .. I'd make a fucking awesome President

    Sadly, I actually have been encountering people of late who say to me -- after I inform them that Huckabee is a total tool -- "aw, I was hoping he wasn't," presumably because he amused them somewhat with his Chuck Norris love-in video.

    Sigh.

    When we start TRYING to believe that a politician is not a total tool because he tried to show some sense of humor with the explicit purpose of trying to convince us that he is not, in fact, a total tool, the terrorists have already won, or something.

    Well, Huckabee is coming off a saint of compassion and wit in the debates. Of all the Republican candidates, he's the only one who doesn't scare the crap out of me. I disagree with him, and I don't want him to be president, but I think he's the best of the GOP lot. And he's got the momentum in the polls right now to be the clear GOP primary winner before the end of February.

    The Chuck Norris video lacked the pizzazz it should've had, but I'm a guy who uses the word 'pizzazz,' so you shouldn't listen to me. However, I can't find it offensive to be a little less formal in your internet videos than in your TV ones (I'm assuming here that the Norris video was internet-only).

    "Surely this isn't news to all you dear, sweet people? For all his many faults, George Bush Sr is nowhere near as stupid as his son... "

    Let's not lose our heads. George Bush Sr was a lying, cowardly shitbag prone to bouts of pronounced verbal incoherence and who famously puked on a prime minister and passed out at a diplomatic dinner.

    I never suggested he was anything other than marginally brighter than his spawn. The traits that you quite rightly mention I sort of covered under "many faults." My point was that politicians of all stripes have been using the media and "fun" for a long time, in a vague effort to appear less banal - David Mellor's much publicised love for Chelsea, for example - it's all "man of the people" schtick.
