Chuck Norris is Batshit Crazy

Things seem to be settling down around here. Wife has a job, which is a huge relief. The dog got her claws clipped today which is a great bit of news. I'm not sure what exactly we're going to do next, but I think everything is going to be OK. 

On the other hand, Chuck Norris is batshit crazy. He's a terrible actor, who hasn't been in a hit movie in a few decades. His current claim to fame is Internet lists proclaiming his awesomeness... and he seems to have let it go to his head. Here's what he's got to say on WorldNutDaily, a lunatic fringe right-wing website:

On Glenn Beck's radio show last week, I quipped in response to our wayward federal government, "I may run for president of Texas."

That need may be a reality sooner than we think. If not me, someone someday may again be running for president of the Lone Star state, if the state of the union continues to turn into the enemy of the state.

Yep. Chuck Norris is suggesting that Texas secede from America, because his party lost the election and he's gone completely bugfuck bonkers. I know what you're all thinking: "Sure Joe, but he's just a bad actor running his mouth. Why should we care?" Besides the fact that Chuck Norris is advocating treason, he's also speaking to an audience that seems more willing to commit violent actions in the name of their insane right-wing, anti-American worldview. Between 1995 and 2005, there have been 60 right-wing domestic terrorist plots. Last year, a big fan of Fox "News" and Rush Limbaugh put their incendiary anti-liberal rhetoric into action, and shot up a Unitarian Church. There have been several serious plans to assassinate President Obama. Just the other day, I read about a white supremacist who had nuclear material and the components to construct a "dirty bomb."

Of course, unless the person being accused of terrorism is Muslim, we never hear about it... and yet it is clear that angry right-wing Caucasians are the more significant threat. Those are the people who are listening to Chuck Norris advocate armed insurrection and treason, and are just waiting for the right signal or message to launch attacks against us. Good job Chuck, good job Glenn Beck and Fox Noise, way to be "patriotic" by fanning the flames of right-wing extremism.

I have a soft spot in my heart for the batshit crazy. Speaking of which, have you read any of Tim Dorsey's Serge Storm series? Just curious. For some reason, you strike me as someone who would appreciate him.
