Pat Summit Would Kick Chuck Norris’ Butt

Tennessee Lady Vols head coach Pat Summitt has tangled with some tough teams over the years, but Wednesday the run-in was with a raccoon.

Summitt had taken her golden Lab, Sally, for a late-night walk, when they encountered the raccoon on the back deck of Summitt’s home.

“I momentarily lost it,” Summitt said. “The raccoon was about to attack. I just knocked it off the deck, and fortunately nothing happened but a dislocated shoulder, and it’s back in place.”

Heh. You know she would kill any worthy opponent although she has a bum shoulder.

Pat Summitt could really whoop your ass.

You got that, didn’t you?

Huckabee Out

4 03 2008

You know, it’s shocking that he stayed longer than Mitt “my hair is a helmet” Romney.

I’m giving Chuck Norris credit on this.

So, here’s a link if you don’t buy it.

And McCain, who was in like Flynn a month ago is now official.

Now Obama or Clinton?

No one knows. And if they say they do, they are wrong.

Will find out later.

Just saying.





Stallone To Endorse McCain

25 01 2008

So Sylvester Stallone is endorsing John McCain?

Enter Texas Walker Ranger Vs. Rambo joke here.

Wait, it’s already been done. 

**sigh**





Butt Kickings Abound In Presidential Race?

21 01 2008

“Oh, I’m in the race. I’m in the race for the long-term,” he said. “Got my butt kicked and now I’m going to get up in spite. Going to fight for all the things that I care about — and those causes have not gone away and haven’t changed.”Edwards said McCain “is starting to look like the Republican nominee and I think it’s important for us to have somebody to run against McCain who can beat him and the national polls show that I’m the one who beats John McCain in the general election.”

From a story from the Associated Press. Currently, I actually know more folks on a personal level that have committed their vote to Edwards although it remains to be seen on Super Tuesday. On the other hand

Now the Illinois senator himself is taking on the former president, telling Good Morning America that he feels as if he’s running against both Clintons.

In the interview, Obama reportedly says that the former president has been misrepresenting both “my record of opposition to the war in Iraq” and “our approach to organizing in Las Vegas,” as the controversy over Saturday’s Nevada caucus vote continues to grow.

And of course, for our early morning cornucopia Chuck Norris called John McCain old.

Norris is 67 incidentally. (Insert Norris quote here about how he could whup on someone, cure cancer, etc.)

Let’s see, in the last 20 years it’s been Bush, Clinton, Clinton, Bush, Bush …

If I wrote music and could actually sing, I think there is a song in there somewhere. I vote Kanye. Or Laurie Anderson.

Yeah, that sounds groovy.





The Cocktail Mentality Of The Presidential Race

28 11 2007

I was looking at my last post and realized that it didn’t make as much sense as I would have liked for it to, so in my MethBenedryl haze, I wrote some more to Cathy’s comment and yet I still wasn’t satisfied with what I was trying to say.

Then, of course, I went to sleep at 7 p.m. which could be the reason why I’m awake now, at 4 a.m.

Everything is connected.

Anyhoo, here’s the reason I think this is a bad idea. Listen, endorsements from celebrities happen all the time. Mike Huckabee has Chuck Norris and Nature Boy, Fred Thompson probably has a slew of folks, etc., Clinton has Spielberg (who most likely won’t say a thing.)

Barbara Streisand reminds me a lot of Hillary Clinton. I’m afraid they both are polarizing figures when you get right down to it although I did hear Goldnl in her post other day about her strengths but I’m just not sold yet. Now, and this is from friend of a friend, who says that someone formerly from Hooterville went to the big Barack Obama and Oprah fundraiser a couple of months ago (this woman no longer lives here). Big fan of them both, I might add. With that said, she said the fundraiser wasn’t about Obama but about Oprah. And, ironically, this woman was disappointed by this although that was one woman’s opinion. But I’ve been thinking about it.

Now, with that said, I saw this at Dork Nation this morning:

It is likely that Winfrey helps Obama by bringing out the dead. People who might not ordinarily have gone to stand in the cold and listen to a political speech on a barnstorming tour may well come out for Oprah (especially if they think there’s a chance they’ll find some Oprah gift under their seats). This can only help Obama, whose been suffering from lacking the immediate name recognition of Sen. Clinton.

And, of course, he’s right. Oprah Winfrey is, regardless of what I said above, not a divider but more of a uniter sort of figure. In the endorsements of the divas, Obama wins hands down, because as Mark says later in his post, people are tired of Barbara.
Oprah has also never done this before where Babs has. And Oprah literally “owns” television. Her show is amazing in that it has lived as long as it has and continues to stay strong.

The presidential race has become a cocktail party and, right now, the person using celebrity fascination the best, well, thus far the guy speaking to folks around here anyway, is most likely Mike Huckabee because the Chuck Norris thing made them laugh, they dig wrestling and he seems like a moderate conservative.

Which we know he isn’t or at least that’s what Rolling Stone is reporting:

He believes the Earth may be only 6,000 years old, angrily rejects the evidence that human beings evolved from “primates” and thinks America wouldn’t need so much Mexican labor if we allowed every aborted ­fetus to grow up and enter the workforce.

Can you say Yikes!

Yup, they like Chuck Norris. Ding, ding, there’s a vote. Now who is this Huckabee guy?

For me to wish that people would vote on the issues is a pipedream, I get that. But I do. But the days of spin has always been around elections. It is what it is.

Is this the only way to get people out to vote?

In this case, I’m wondering who Britney Spears is supporting as she gets the most air-time on news programs than anyone.

Wait, last time, it was Bush.

Never mind.





When Wrestlers Endorse Presidential Candidates

20 11 2007

Ric Flair is supporting GOP presidential candidate Mike Huckabee.

I wasn’t really sure who Ric Flair was (sorry wrassling fans) but now Huckabee has two tough guys with Flair and Chuck Norris in his court. Flair’s tough, isn’t he?
The Ticker has it:

In the race for presidential endorsements, Mike Huckabee has the kitschy pop culture celebrity vote on lockdown.

First it was martial arts hero and “Walker, Texas Ranger” star Chuck Norris, who appears with Huckabee in his first TV ad.

Then hard-rocking hunting enthusiast Ted Nugent jumped on the Huckabee bandwagon, citing the Republican’s support for second amendment rights.

And now he has Ric Flair.

I always vote blindly after getting a heads up political endorsement from wrestlers with platinum hair although I really need to know who Hulk Hogan is endorsing because, you know, I know who he is and he is the Hulk (but is he the good Hulk or the bad Hulk or the dad Hulk? I guess that should play into my thought process on the presidential election because any time a wrestler gives an endorsement for someone to run my country, I. AM. THERE.)

I do believe that Chuck Norris could effectively beat the crap out of Flair in about 17 seconds if Huckabee wanted to stage a reality show around this. Sorta on the same premise as “The Contender” where we see the friendship, the tears, the joy as Chuck and Ric prep for their big battle. You know, writer’s strike and all. Man, I keep having these great ideas for television and no one is calling me from Hollywood. Of course, I wouldn’t pitch this to CBS right now.

Nugent can score the series with updated classics like “Chuck Scratch Fever.”

The possibilities are endless.





The One Where Mike Huckabee Does A Funny Ad

19 11 2007

It happens. I mooched this off of Volunteer Voters this morning and I hate to tell you as I’m a tree-hugging liberal, but I laughed.
