Chuck Norris on Digg’s Top Ten list
Maybe it’s that Americans remember Ronald Reagan, an actor turned president; maybe it’s just that people are tired of politics. Could be they know what WMDs really are. But the result is a flood of readers of Chuck Norris’ WND column, “If I am elected president,” pushing it up onto Digg’s Top 10 list.
The column also reached the IMDb Hit List on the Internet Movie Database website.
The “Walker, Texas Ranger” star promises in his column to: “Resolve the Iraq war by bringing all of our military personnel home immediately, then going over there by myself for ‘martial arts negotiations.'”
He also vows to: “Hang Saddam Hussein (Whoops – scratch that – already did it undercover).”
Norris, who writes weekly column for WND, has covered topics such as “The Heroes of Americans academic halls,” and “A power greater than my punch.” The star of more than 20 films, he also is featured in his own WND Forum.
His book, “Against All Odds,” tells the inspirational story of how he overcame abject poverty from childhood, the effects of his father’s alcoholism and desertion of the family, and his own shyness and lack of strength and ability early in his life.
His official website is at ChuckNorris.com.
He used his column this week to speculate what would be his campaign promises in a presidential race. He writes that he would:
- “Send an autographed photo of me and my horse (no dogs in my White House) to everyone who commits to read my new WorldNetDaily ‘presidential column’ and blast a blog who dares to disagree with me.
- “Expose the real WMDs – my fists and feet.
- “Help Rosie transition from ‘The View’ to the pew – it might help her get over that anger problem.
He writes that “first and foremost,” he would “personally smoke out bin Laden by myself and round-house kick him all the way back to America, where my United Fighting Arts Federation will handle the justice issues.”
Norris’ column was pushed up the Digg list of stories by the number of votes, or “Diggs,” from readers. Fans of various stories submit them to the Digg community, which decides whether a story “rocks.”
