Chuck thinks so…

Norris: McCain may be too old for the White House

Chuck Norris brought his tough-guy approach to the campaign trail Sunday, taking aim at John McCain’s age and suggesting the Arizona senator might not last even a single term.

Norris, an ardent supporter of Mike Huckabee, told reporters he believes serving as president accelerates the aging process 3-to-1.

“If John takes over the presidency at 72 and he ages 3-to-1, how old will he be in four years? Eighty-four years old — and can he handle that kind of pressure in that job?” Norris said, as Huckabee looked on.

“That’s why I didn’t pick John to support, because I’m just afraid the vice president will wind up taking over his job within that four-year presidency,” added the action star.

Huckabee himself avoided offering his own opinion on whether McCain is fit for the presidency, saying “Only John McCain and his hair dresser know for sure.”

Only his hair dresser knows for sure? Wow, Pastor Mike, smart comeback. Besides, I don’t really understand; John McCain’s hair has been snow white for as long as I can remember.

I sure hope the Republicans nominate this idiot.

However, Chuck and Huck do have a point. McCain is too old. Many people have pointed out that Mr. McCain is only two years older than Ronald Reagan was when he was elected for the first time. New flash: John McCain is no Ronald Reagan. Besides, Reagan was no bargain either.

Then again, has this country sunk so low that we are now taking political advice from Chuck Norris? Really? Chuck Norris?!

Ladies and gentlemen, we give you The Chuck and Huck Show:

We should probably note that Mr. Norris is just two months away from his 68th birthday. He’s not really that much younger than Mr. McCain, and it seems to us that playing an action figure on TV would age one at least as rapidly as playing President of the United States.

I liked Ronald Reagan. He was a terrible president, but he was a very likable man. It is probably good that he is not around to see what is happening to his party these days. I don’t think he’d like it much.

The Republican party of today has two tools that they keep falling back on because those two tools are all they have. They have become the party of Fear and Hatred.

I saw the following graphic on one of the leading right wing weblogs earlier today. It is the perfect example (click to enlarge)…

Fear. Hatred. Republicans.

I think the people of the United States are growing weary of all three. This is the year we take our country back.

One year from today

I just happened to glance at the countdown clock in the left column. In just one year, 365 days, our long national nightmare will come to an end. The embarrassing (and costly in so many ways) presidency of George W. Bush will be over. A new person will be moving into the Oval Office.

I hope that whoever that is, whether it be Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton, brings a good supply of Lysol disinfectant spray. It is going to take a lot to kill all the stupid.
