Chuck Norris has uppercutted the political world and ripped out the still-beating heart of Michael Barone with his long-waited '08 endorsement.
Though Giuliani might be savvy enough to lead people, Fred Thompson wise enough to wade through the tides of politics, McCain tough enough to fight terrorism and Romney business-minded enough to grow our economy, I believe the only one who has all of the characteristics to lead America forward into the future is ex-Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee.
It's a pretty boring cut-and-paste job until the crescendo.
Huckabee has, and will continue to have, his hecklers: "He hasn't raised enough money." "He'll never beat Hillary." "Our society is too prejudice and paranoid to vote for a once Baptist minister." "He'll never out-race the top four Republican candidates."
I was thinking about these types of comments the other day when I recalled another leader in ancient times that didn't match up in the line up: King David. Seven men were poised and paraded for the position of king, but David was left in the field shepherding because he wasn't "a frontrunner in the polls." They overlooked the best because they were too busy judging by outward appearance. But God appointed David king.
Huckabee hardly needs more God-cred, but until now his attempts to look tough were limited to lecturing Ron Paul about honor. This is big for him. And I suppose it's another loss for Mitt Romney, who wants to win over cultural cons but can't convince them that he bleeds red.
