President Chuck

I'd like to second this idea of Chuck Norris'. And suggest he take The Huckster with him as veep, interlocutor and official state talk show host of the breakaway Republic of Texas. We'd need to build a wall in Texarkana.

“In what could be the most egregious misuse of his Chuck Norris powers” since he endorsed Mike Huckabee, said Edward Ericson Jr. in the Baltimore City Paper, the martial artist and TV star suggested that Texas was ripe to secede from the union, “that he ‘may run for President’ of the Republic of Texas,” and that there are thousands of “right-wing ‘cells’” ready to follow radio host Glen Beck’s “marching orders.”

The need to secede “may be a reality sooner than we think,” said Chuck Norris in Townhall. My president-of-Texas “quip” was “tongue-in-cheek,” but the idea behind it isn’t. Washington is “moving farther and farther from its Founders’ vision and government,” and the people won’t stand for it. And Texas—it’s own republic from 1836 to 1846—is the logical place to make a stand.
