Chuck Norris: Republican King-Maker 09 Dec 2007

From WingNutDaily WorldNetDaily:

Actor and martial arts expert Chuck Norris has been canonized with Internet “facts,” such as, “They wanted to put Chuck Norris on Mount Rushmore, but the granite wasn’t tough enough for Chuck’s beard” – many of them available on The WND Forum called Chuck Norris Laughlines.

Now another can be added: When Chuck Norris makes a decision and writes about it in his WND column, three million people go along with him.

The difference is that this “fact” is grounded in reality.

Yep, they’re claiming that Mike Huckabee’s surge in the polls is due to Walker, Texas Ranger.

Alice Stewart, a spokeswoman for the Huckabee campaign, told WND that the Norris endorsement definitely produced results.

“He certainly had a surge with the endorsement from Chuck Norris,” she told WND this week, just after the same Rasmussen Reports confirmed Huckabee had moved into first among GOP candidates with 22 percent support. In second was Rudy Giuliani with 18 percent, and Mitt Romney, John McCain and Fred Thompson followed with 13, 12, and 9 percent.

“Obviously, we’re excited,” Stewart said. “It just goes to show that the message is connecting with the people.”

She said another surge came with the release of a Chuck Norris television ad with Huckabee. In it, Huckabee talks about his solution to enforcement of U.S. border laws.

“Two words,” he says. “Chuck Norris.”

I wandered over from a link PZ’s blog. I’m sure that little linky spiked your traffic numbers. No more single digits for you, huh?

Nice place you have here, I’m going to check back.

You blog about things that interest me, which is always interesting; I find myself agreeing with you, so you must be right.

Welcome! Yeah, I’m definitely having a banner day today so far. But I’m sure it will go back to normal numbers in a bit. 😉

And I guess great minds think alike!
