Mitt Romney should be thanking his lucky stars that Mike Huckabee is Mike Huckabee and not Chuck Norris.
Introducing Huckabee at a pancake house this morning, Norris jokingly threatened violence. He said if he were Huckabee and someone tried to mischaracterize his record — as Huckabee said Romney did in last night’s Fox News debate — he’d take him out, kung-fu-style.
“In these debates . . . if you say the wrong thing, they’re going to crucify you,” Norris said. “Or if a guy says the wrong thing about you and you respond, they’ll crucify you anyway. I don’t have the skin for it. . . . The first time the guy started saying the things they say to Mike Huckabee, I’d be choking him unconscious. That’s what I would have done last night.” (Concord Monitor)
