Quote of the Day

Here's Adam Thierer, on the strangeness of Christian arch-conservative Mike Huckabee being endorsed by the likes of Ric Flair, Chuck Norris and Ted Nugent:

But I’m just wondering, has Mike Huckabee listened to “Wang Dang Sweet Poontang” by Ted Nugent? Does he know what that song is referring to? And I wonder what the governor Huckabee’s favorite Nugent album is. Is it “Penetrator”? Or is it “If You Can’t Lick ‘Em…Lick ‘Em”? Or perhaps it’s “Love Grenade”? And has the governor listened to tunes on those albums like “The Harder They Come, The Harder I Get”?

And I’m also wondering if Gov. Huckabee has watched some of those old Chuck Norris karate movies like “Forced Vengence,” “A Force of One,” or “Silent Rage”? I loved those movies as a kid, but those are the sort of flix that the FCC and many members of Congress would like to see banned from television for their “excessively violent” nature. Is the governor OK with those movies?

Finally, does Huckabee realize that Ric Flair’s claim to fame in the professional wrestling world was that he was the ultimate “cut man”? That is, Flair was willing to be one of those guys who, in just about every match, would voluntarily cut his head open with a razor blade after being thrown out of the ring. (He hid on floor and cut his head with a blade that would be hidden under the stage). My God, Flair bled like nobody else, and the blood would ultimately make his shocking white hair turn pink, ratty, and disgusting. And the fans went wild! We all loved to see the pompous “Nature Boy” bleed.

I'd understand all that- if Huckabee and Flair were willing to jointly endorse my idea for the Royal Rumble presidential debate. Wooooo!

I've never understood the "these people endorse you, so obviously you must agree with all of their previous creative output" mentality. At least it seems to nail people on both sides of the aisle.
