Vote For Mike Huckabee or Chuck Norris Will Kill You

That's right, folks. Chuck Norris has officially endorsed Mike Huckabee as the next president of the United States saying, "I believe the only one who has all of the characteristics to lead America forward into the future is ex-Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee."

Well call it all off, Chuck has spoken. Remember when Vince Carter was in the Slam Dunk contest and did that catch-off-the-bounch, under-the-leg, windmill slam? When he landed, he looked in the camera and said, "It's over", even though the contest was not, officially, over. But it was. Well since Chuck Norris declared his support for Huckabee, it could be over. We all know about the famous Chuck Norris facts and, of course, the most important one to recognize is that, "America is not a democracy, it's a Chucktatorship".

It really is too bad that Chuck Norris is a religious anti-evolution weirdo. Check this out:
"...(H)ere's what I really think about the theory of evolution: It's not real. It is not the way we got here. In fact, the life you see on this planet is really just a list of creatures God has allowed to live. We are not creations of random chance. We are not accidents. There is a God, a Creator, who made you and me. We were made in His image, which separates us from all other creatures. By the way, without Him, I don't have any power. But with Him, the Bible tells me, I really can do all thingsā€”and so can you." from here
Right, Chuck. You can "do all things". Howzabout you resurrect your film and/or TV career. Don't worry, I'll wait. Also, here once again, we see the fallacious, "we're not creations of random chance" line of belief that shows off both the speaker's ignorance of what they are criticizing and an unwillingness to even look at their opponent's position/argument.

I'm shocked that we'd see this level of incompetence from a former action-film star.

Of course, Huckabee is the same way. He actually said this in response to his lack of "belief" in evolution by natural selection:
"If you want to believe that you and your family came from apes, that's fine. I'll accept that, I just don't happen to think that I did...(and also he wants) schools to acknowledge that there are views that are different than evolution." from here
This guy is out of his mind with respect to science education. I mean, I think that Bill Clinton's Oval Office hummer showed a tremendous lack of respect for the position he held and brought into question his moral character, no doubt. That being said, I'd rather have someone in control with a bit of a philandering personality than someone with a total lack of understanding concerning one of the most demonstrated and evidence-based scientific theories in history. I mean, you may as well say that you believe objects can fly because gravity is "just a theory", or that you don't care about satellites or photos from "the Moon" because you know that the Earth is flat. Jebus....

So if you feel like having a scientifically illiterate person near atomic weapons, vote Huckabee! Just imagine, it'd be like Pat Robertson and Zombie Falwell on the ticket! Let's all chant together, American Theocracy, Now!

Now whatever did happen to that darn Establishment Clause....?

I know this is really beside the point and all, but should it be "ex-arkansas gov," or "arkansas ex-gov?" I can't quite figure out which is more right or less wrong.

Either Huckabee is seriously courting a very specific segment of American society or else he's figured out he doesn't stand a chance of becoming president and has a better sense of humor than anyone previously thought. I hope it's the latter, but I fear it's the former.
