McCain: I'm sending Sly Stallone to take care of Chuck Norris

(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."

    The only individuals that I consider, as an independent voter seasoned, battle tested and ready to lead us through this mess left by the bush /cheney/rove/wolfowitz gang are Sen.McCain and Sen.Clinton.The conundrum being they are on different sides . What we don't need at this point ,is a theocracy , or a political lightweight bankrolled by a billionairess.

    I liked seeing that McCain does have a sense of humor, and knows that Stalone would win!

    haven't heard who would stump for Rudy, but it won't be his friend Kerik, he's indicted by the Feds.
