Huckabees Chuck Norris Ad (Video)

Text settings

Via Garance, here is by far and away the best advertisement of this interminable presidential election campaign:

UPDATE: Daniel Larison makes the good point that Huckabee's two word plan for securing the border ("Chuck Norris") is an admission that Huckabee doesn't really have a border policy at all (or at least not one likely to appeal to discontented Iowa Republicans).

Best - or at least most amusing - reaction to Huckabee's ad comes, of course, from our old friend Witless Fred Dalton Thompson whose campaign spokesman complains that "Mike Huckabee has confused celebrity endorsement with serious policy."
