'Mike Huckabee is Chuck Norris approved'

Chuck Norris is seeking campaign cash for Mike Huckabee.

WASHINGTON (CNN) - Fresh off endorsing Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee last month, actor Chuck Norris has penned a fundraising e-mail Tuesday on behalf of the Arkansas Republican, and he's making several demands.

"The first thing I need you to do today is make a contribution in support of Mike Huckabee's campaign," the "Walker Texas Ranger" star writes in the e-mail carrying the subject “Mike Huckabee is Chuck Norris approved”.

"The second thing I need you to do today is ask at least one friend to make a contribution to Mike's campaign," Norris continues. "The third and final thing I need you to do today is to tell your friends and family members that aren't able to contribute at this time to Mike's campaign to at least sign up for his email updates."

Norris endorsed Huckabee late last month, declaring in his online column, "I believe the only one who has all of the characteristics to lead America forward into the future is ex-Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee."

Huckabee registered 10 percent in the latest national CNN/Opinion Research Corporation poll of registered Republicans. But the former Arkansas governor is doing considerably better in the early-voting state of Iowa. The latest American Research Group poll of likely Iowa GOP caucus-goers places him in second place with 19 percent - trailing former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney by 8 percentage points.

    "Personally smoke out bin Laden by myself and round-house kick him all the way back to America, where my United Fighting Arts Federation will handle the justice issues."
    Why wait until you are made president? Do it now and the US will give you the presidency. Take your scriptwriters and your hairdressers and your fluffers and shoe-buffers and make-up artists and special effects technicians with you. Don't bother volunteering "Ah-nee", he is busy starring in his own movie and would probably find you irrelevant anyway, but you are welcome to take Theodore Nooj with you.

    And don't forget to invite Mad Max! He is a More-Perfect ™ Christian that has unresolved issues with some of those people over there. He would probably love to go with you. It would make a great action flick!

    Seems like this section needs some salt and light.

    Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called the children of God.

    Let God be true and every man a liar.

    Even so, come, Lord Jesus.

    Anyone who wants to advance the whole "Christian Nation" argument should read this:

    Article III
    Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

    It's from the US CONSTITUTION. Clearly the founding fathers wanted to keep religion the heck out of politics. That would be my first question for Mike Huckabee–what are you going to do to keep religion (yours or anyone else's) out of politics and therefore preserve the Constitution of the United States of America?

    Mike Huckabee isn't a Christian, he's a Gothardite. Look up Bill Gothard and how Huckabee put his teachings into the public schools in Arkansas. Indoctrination at it's finest!

    Oh jeepers I guess if Chuck Norris endorses Huckabee I should vote for him. Why is this even a news story? I prefer Tancredo or Hunter to Mike Huckabee. There is just sompthing so slimy about Huckabee. He makes my skin crawl. I watched the debate last night and was disgusted by how biased Anderson Cooper, host of the CNN/YouTube debate, is against Ron Paul and Tancredo. Paul’s ideas are very mainstream. He stands by the Constitution, and is for America and American citizens. The mass media just keeps trying to shove Huckabee, Romney and the other Republican neocons down the throat of the American people. The new stategy of corporate run media appears to be slandering Paul supporters as fringe dwellers and conspiracy theorists.

    If Chuck Norris is so great why wont he communicate with the people that help him get to where he is today. His very long time friends. We were together in the Military and civilian times and I help in starting his first Dojo in Torance, California. Call me Chuck.

    Chuck Norris the man who brings the pledge of Allegiance back to every school kid via the 2008 election with Huckabie. Just change it a little. Who knows what it should be? but im sure we can afford to pay a team of writers to change that one sentence. Lets get it done. Lets get the children some values. Thanks Kyle Mello RI
