(CNN) - Earlier this week, martial arts star Chuck Norris questioned John McCain's ability to serve as president, because of the Arizona senator's age - at 72, he'd be the oldest first-term president in American history.
At Thursday night's debate, McCain had a response for the action star, who has endorsed Republican rival Mike Huckabee:
"Now that Sylvestor Stallone has endorsed me, I'm sending him over to take care of Chuck Norris right away."
–CNN Associate Political Editor Rebecca Sinderbrand
Huckabee is done – remember the old saying "Just Say No To Theocracy"
TOO BAD YOUR NOT MAN ENOUGH TO TAKE CARE OF HIM YOURSELF GRANPA
I have never seen so many soft ball questions in a debate. Difentaly there siting this up for Romney
i saw 4 people debating, everybody was ignoring ron paul because they afraid of him, because they scared to get schooled by him
Great comeback to a totally tasteless and disrespectful crap comment.
McCain has great wit and respect for everyone else in the race–too bad
it's not contagious. Go McCain.
What is this? A Republican showing a hint of a sense of humor??????
Alas, there's still that pesky Bush-lapdog thing.
I like how Ron asked a straight forward question about transparency in the FOMC to McCain. I honestly don't think McCain had any idea what he was talking about... He ran into some kind of reboot, name drop, reboot, name drop mode. And he's the front runner?? That's Frightening.
I think Stallone would beat Norris hands down in a ring!
Where was Chuck Norris tonight? Chuck makes Huck look like a schmuk!
Ok first of all...Stallone vs. Norris??!! The only thing Stallone will be taking care of is his face after Chuck Norris roundhouse kicks it. And second of all, Chuck Norris for president...
Too many debates...
A word regarding tonight's GOP "debate": YAWN.
This is the most pointless, uninformative post CNN has ever done. Issues anyone?
Clinton's dirty attacks on Obama are disappointing... but this is a truly pathetic debate.
I imagine it is hard for the other candidates, who have little of no knowledge of our constitution, to want to debate with a "constituionalist".
Sylvester has taken a few to many hits to the brain matter during his filming of the Rocky movies. Endorsing a candidate that wants to keep our young men dying indefinately fighting an obscure, elusive, world wide enemy? While the whole world laughs at us and our economy dives into a pit?
What an inane comment by the old guy...time for his metamucil...
Norris retired from his karate fighting tournaments 65 wins, 6 losses, having avenged all previous losses, and remaning undefeated for approximately 6 years. He holds the Tae Kwon Do rank of 8th Degree Black Belt Grand Master. Stallone is just an actor.
On his best day, Stallone would last about 35-40 seconds with Chuck.
CNN WILL NOT HEADLINE IT< but us supporters will
NEW YORK TIMES ENDORESES SENATOR HILLARY CLINTON FOR PRESIDENT 2008 What the NEW YORK TIMES said about Senator Clinton. "We know that she is capable of both uniting and leading. We saw her going town by town through New York in 2000, including places where Clinton-bashing was a popular sport. She won over skeptical voters and then delivered on her promises and handily won re-election in 2006."
Senator Clinton for President 2008 "WE BELIEVE IN HILLARY CLINTON"
But Stallone has the Rambo style sub-machine gun. That beats Tae Kwon Do rank of 8th Degree Black Belt Grand Master.
it the first time i laughed since this election has started.
it nice to see something other than bikering that is taken over in politics
thanks it was refreshing to see this
First of all, what is Ru Paul still doing in the race? The man is an idiot. Secondly, McCain has been stabbing the conservative movement in the back for years. That's why the media love him. He does not deserve the mantle of Reagan. Thirdly, Huckabee is as liberal as John Edwards, but pro-life. It is Mitt or Rudy for me.
Maybe Stallone can lead McCain to where he can find the answer to the question posed to him by Ron Paul. It was totally obvious that McCain didn't have a clue what Ron Paul was talking about shown either by his facial expressions when listening to the question or by his words when answering. That was pitiful ! It made it worse after you just expressed your supreme knowledge about economy affairs after stating weeks ago he needed more education in that area. Well, I guess that statement was correct – he does need a whole lot more educating in relation to the economy. I had to stop from choking on my drink when he first answered about the stimulus package and he was sorry they hadn't made the tax cuts permanent because people who were now planning their 2010 budget would have problems. Try telling that to the thousands who are wondering where next month's rent is going to come from!
Rambo McCain when he gets hold of the nuclear weapons he will wipe out the Middle East.
WAR WAR WAR WAR
It's moronic to see the bragging about celebrity endorsements when people ought to be talking about issues and solutions. Why in the world would anyone care what Norris or Stallone have to say or who is older or uglier? McCain has them all beat in age and rage, Romney has them all beat in intelligence, leadership, and debate skills, and Huckabee has them all beat in becoming irrelevant the fastest.
