Happy birthday to Chuck Norris, who says he might someday run for president
Carlos Ray “Chuck” Norris, who was born 69 years ago today, apparently is resigned to the fact that there aren’t many juicy TV or movie roles open to a martial-arts guy of his advanced age. So, he’s looking for a new career.
Politics would seem to be a natural choice for the Chuckster, considering his recent experience as a prominent celebrity endorser of Republican presidential candidates.
Norris’ first choice for the White House, you may recall, was Mike Huckabee, whose conspicuous conservative religiosity matched Chuck’s own devout faith. And when Huckabee faded away, Norris eventually gave his coveted nod to John McCain, who turned out to be the GOP nominee.
But alas, McCain’s candidacy also failed, no matter that Norris was for him. Ah, but Chuck seems to have come away from all this campaign experience with his own case of presidential fever. He now readily admits that he might want to become president himself. But there will be none of that climbing-the-political-ladder stuff for him. He wants to start at the top — and not as president of the United States, but as president of an independent nation. Texas!
You see, with the socialist-commies now in power in Washington, Chuck figures that Texas, where men are real men, might have to do the manly thing and secede.
“Anyone who has been around Texas for any length of time,” he says, “knows exactly what we’d do if the going got rough in America. Let there be no doubt about that. As Sam Houston once said, ‘Texas has yet to learn submission to any oppression, come from what source it may.’”
And, by God, if Texas is going to go its own way in this time of trouble, Chuck Norris is more than willing to be its leader.
Personally, I’m all for it. Good luck to you, Chuck. I’m sure we’ll be hearing more about you and your fellow secessionists in the coming months and years as you plot your withdrawal from the evil Obamanation.
And if it doesn’t work out, you’ll at least have laid the foundation for a new career — in comedy.
