Memo to John McCain: You should have stuck with Brimley - even oatmeal is hotter than Rambo these days

McCain catches Huckabee in that all-important category -

"Meaningless endorsement from a washed-up Hollywood action star."

From The Swamp in the Baltimore Sun -

For a while, it seemed like Mike Huckabee had a lock on the campy tough guy vote as he toted Walker Texas Ranger star Chuck Norris around Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina.

Then John McCain got Wilford Brimley, the gruff and tough actor turned oatmeal pitchman.

Today comes the tie break.

Sylvester Stallone of Rocky fame has come out for McCain.

Oh, the possible jokes...

"...After this message from Liberty Medical, the 2008 Republican Debate asks: 'Rambo' and 'Missing in Action' - cynically xenophobic gorefests or cathartic cultural statements?"

"...Quaker Oats, Grecian Formula or Human Growth Hormone - which helps a campaign more?"

"...Breaking news: Dr. Phil has suspended operations at his syndicated television show in order to film his newest reality series 'Psychological Babysitter To Celebrity Train Wrecks.' This week, watch Dr. Phil counsel Steven Seagal, who has threatened to cut off his pony tail unless one of the presidential campaigns calls him."

Anybody have one of their own they want to add to the list?

Oh man, sometimes we have to wonder don't we?

Since religion and politics is such a hot topic right now, and with the primaries moving into Arizona, I thought you may be interested in a film that just came out titled: "Article VI: Faith. Politics. America." The film was directed by Bryan Hall and Jack Donaldson. It is an intense discussion of the role of faith in politics. The title is taken from Article Six of the United States Constitution: "no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States."

If you haven't seen the trailer I suggest you check it out:

(DVD's just went on sale as well.) Let me know what you think!
