Celebrity Endorsements

Yes, as we all know, Chuck Norris supports Huckabee. Ezra Klein, in posting the instant-classic ad, also pooh-poohs it:

That said, this is Huckabee's first ad in Iowa, and it seems strangely conceived. Chuck Norris facts are very well known amongst plugged-in hipsters who read Gawker. They are not very well known, I'd guess, among Iowans. If this were a web-only ad meant to get the campaign some YouTube pick-up, it would be very well-designed. As an introduction to Iowans? I think it'll confuse more than it will convert.
In other weird endorsement news, Curt Schilling backs McCain, Jackson Browne and Bonnie Raitt support Edwards, and (most strangely of all) Pat Robertson supports Giuliani.

Also supporting Huckabee: Ted Nugent, and Ric Flair. Jonathan Last has some other wrestling/candidate endorsements. Of course Mick Foley supports Ron Paul.

Didn't you have a post awhile back about Kane actually endorsing Ron Paul?

So Chuck Norris supports Huckabee. I wonder who Mr. T and Vin Diesel supports so we can finally see who is the mightier of the three!!
