Leave it to Mike Huckabee to come up with Chuck Norris in his campaign ad. The ad plays off Chuck Norris facts – a ridiculously popular website that lists, among other facts:
Guns don’t kill people. Chuck Norris kills People. There is no theory of evolution. Just a list of animals Chuck Norris allows to live. Chuck Norris does not sleep. He waits.
With that in mind, here’s Mike (and Chuck):When I first heard about the ad, I rolled my eyes and thought Mike had come undone. Then I looked at the counter on YouTube. More than 500,000 views in a day. I compared that to other campaigns – Obama’s first ad only has 175,000 after nearly a year. His last ad has less than 3,000 hits. Hillary’s top ad has 145,000 – after months and months. The Republican side is worse. Rudy’s top ad has less than 35,000 hits. Maybe Mike knows something the rest of them don’t. Of course maybe not a single YouTube viewer lives in New Hampshire and will vote for him.
