WNW: Chuck Approves These Messages

This is not an endorsement of Mike Huckabee as a presidential candidate, but god damn, the man knows how to use an internet meme:

Your thoughts on his politics aside, you've got to admit, that's the savviest campaign ad in decades. This guy, at least, knows the value of viral advertising and how the internet helps shape elections. For that, I give him props.

But whatever my political affiliation may be, I'd like to point out that I am pro-Chuck Norris. Not even a blender can defeat him!

  1. Yeah. I'm pretty much diametricly opposed to everything Huckabee stands for, and if I would have been an American even I might have even entertained the notion of voting for him.

    Because that commercial has one hell of an awesome-factor. As a political ad it's very slick and both plays on his strengths and turns potential weaknesses in his political armor into strength. If just looked on as an ad and nothing else it both plays on AND subverts the trope while both being completely serious and completely absurd at the same time without becoming ridiculous (that's freaking tough!). So awesome points there as well.
