(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
It is about time!! Stallone and Norris... How petty these two are!!!!
I am pretty sure Chuck Norris would win that fight. At least this debate didn't turn into Jerry Springer.
McCain... war good
Giuliani.... Ronald Reagan, 9/11
Huckabee.... pundit and chump
Romney.... I'm prettier than Hillary
I'm still waiting for a candidate. sigh!
Why were there minute by minute updates from Bill Schneider on the debate of the Democrats in SC, but no similar series of updates for the debate of the Republicans?
How come every post about a Republican candidate has to have the obligatory comments from the Ron Paul brown shirts, complaining that the media isn't paying enough attention to him or them?
The media isn't paying attention to him because he's a racist, paranoid kook, and nobody in the real world takes him and his views seriously! I know that when you surround yourselves with loonies who stockpile weapons and talk about how the Zionists control the governmet, that it's easy to convince yourself that there are millions of people who share your beliefs, but trust me, you're in the minority. I'm not even going to discuss his obsession with the gold standard, despite the fact that dumping it brought America from economic stagnation to unparalleled prosperity.
You guys were wrong about Clinton calling in the UN to patrol our streets, you were wrong when you stockpiled food in your underground shelters in anticipation of the Y2K incident, and you're wrong now - GET OVER IT!
It's sad to see the old gentleman making a fool of himself. But it's downright scary to hear him rant about how many more people he wants to sacrifice just to satisfy his own militarism.
It doesnt take much to side track the voting public does it?.
I'm not a Ron Paul supporter, but he makes a lot of sense when he talks about the economy and foreign policy.
wow best line of the night...mitt: i cant imagine the clintons back in the white house and bill having nothing to do, ouch that hurt!
stallion will ramboo the heck out of norris, see if your kicks can stop rambo's machine guns baby!!!! lol
Ah, the tag team of Mac and Cheese are finally sending their mouthpieces to attack each other. Priceless.
Is this a junior high skit?
Give me a candidate of substance.
Give me Mitt Romney.
While Mac and Cheese have Chuck Norris and Sylvester Stallone, Mitt Romney has quietly racked up more endorsements from members of the US Congress than any other GOP candidate. See for yourself on Wikipedia.
What a field of idiots!!! Write in NONE OF THE ABOVE in '08!
everyone seems to get these political ticker blog entries confused with major headlines.
its a BLOG
its supposed to be up to the minute politics
fun little bytes that wouldnt necessarily make their way onto the front page of CNN OR the front page of the New York Times.
CNN reporters do know what the real issues are- theyre over on the front page for you to find.
OH MY GOD!
I have to tell you...I am a Democrat...and a Hillary Clinton supporter and I am so happy that you are debating the relative facility of the competing martial arts styles of these two Republican gentlemen...surrogates of the candidates.
It makes me even more sure that we will control the government after 2008.
You have not a clue! :-)
Summary of the debate:
Giuliani: "My platform is simple: it's just the opposite of what the New York Times writes about."
Huckabee: "Chuck Norris supports me."
McCain: "Stalone is on my side."
...these are the people running to hold the highest position of the executive branch of our government.
Are Romney and Paul the only two candidates that care enough to stick to the issues?
As long as Iraq War is on, it will be very hard for the economy to recover . Get out of Iraq now!!!
dude, how could selvester stalone take care of chuck norris? i mean, it is chuck norris for pete's sake. no one can beat chuck norris, ever
Clarkson, your too generous. Sly wouldn't last 15 seconds.
Stallone...I've loved his movies for years. But his endorsement does NOTHING for me. Why would I have any interest in following Mr. Stallone's political views and preferences? He's a friggin' actor with nothing better to do with his time...it's just a way to find time in the spotlight. He can't possibly be genuinely interested in the real issues facing our nation. Remember...a celebrity's endorsement means NOTHING more than the one vote he or she can cast in the booth, which is exactly the number of votes I can cast. One!
My vote will be for Gov Romney. He's distinguished himself as the clear conservative voice and the right person to strengthen our economy, continue to wage the war against terror and protect our borders, and lead our country. Go Mitt!!
Not funny, these guys want to play games, let them play with themselves. Huckleberry and McLame are old useless bureacrats who like to do alot of talking ... and their records show failed liberal policies.
Isn't Stallone a draft dodger?
Not only would Chuck Norris roundhouse kick Stallone in the face leaving him for dead but we could also counter the effects of global warming. If harnessed correctly, one Chuck Norris roundhouse kick could power 10 000 homes for one year.
What? What the heck is this crap? This isn't news! This isn't politics either. Chuck Norris vs Sylverstet Stallone? Alien vs Predator? Why don't we have them compete using Batman and Superman? Do me a favor CNN, don't ever print crap like this again; it is an insult to the intelligence of myself and all of the United States.
McCain should send his mother to take care of Chuck Norris. She looks to be immortal, though not aging well.
Isn't Stallone a draft dodger? McCain just lost any chance at my vote!
