Sylvester Stallone was backing Sen. John McCain

\ Chuck Norris has been a prominent backer of Mike Huckabee, and the action star recently said he thought McCain, at 71, was too old to be president. At last night’s debate in Florida Huckabee said the only reason he didn’t disagree at the time was fear.\


\ \

\ “I was standing with him and I didn’t disagree with him at the time, because I was standing next to him. It’s as simple as that. This is a guy who can put this foot on that side of my face, and there’s nothing I can do about it,” Huckabee said.\

\ McCain then chimed in that he was going to do something about the pesky Norris: “Well, now that Sylvester Stallone has endorsed me, I’m sending him over to take care of Chuck Norris right away, and I’m going to get him.”\

\ For good measure, McCain added he would also deploy another recent endorser to deal with Chuck: “Stormin’ Norman, General Schwartzkopf, has endorsed me as well. I’m very honored. We’ll send him, too.”\

\ Any bets who wins?\
