“Mike Huckabee for President of Earth!”

"Mike Huckabee for President of Earth!"

In light of yesterday’s Huckabee-Obama surprise Iowa win, Vulture posted a hilarious piece endorsing Mike Huckabee:

We usually leave the politics to our sister blog, Daily Intel, but after last night’s shocking results in Iowa, we cannot stop ourselves from throwing our weight behind Mike Huckabee. Why? It’s simple. Sure, he was funnier than Jay Leno on Jay Leno’s first post-strike show, but how hard is that? No, it’s because of Huckabee’s well-publicized endorsement from Vulture hero Chuck Norris, whose enormous, gleaming choppers were on full display in the background last night as the candidate thanked his supporters. It’s because the two cut this ad, in which Chuck Norris recites facts about Mike Huckabee, while Huckabee quotes “facts” about Norris. It’s because if Huckabee is elected, he certainly will appoint Norris to a Cabinet position — Defense would be the logical choice, as long as they change the title to Secretary of Offense.

And it’s because we can now guarantee that in the next year, some piece of campaign literature will claim, Kid Nation style, that Mike Huckabee “is endorsed by New York Magazine!” Sure, we’ll be fired, but it’ll be worth it.

Meanwhile, John Heilemann wrote a much less funny but nonetheless interesting article for the blog’s host, New York magazine, on whether Mr. Obama can “withstand the weight of unparalleled expectations and the Clinton hit machine” in light of his new frontrunner status.
