FROM CNN's Jack Cafferty:
Chuck Norris thinks John McCain is too old to be president.
Campaigning for Mike Huckabee, Norris suggested the 71-year-old McCain might not even make it through a single term.
Norris said: "I didn't pick John to support because I'm just afraid that the vice president would wind up taking over his job in that four-year Presidency"
Get over yourself. You break boards in the movies for a living.
Norris thinks Huckabee, who is 52, is the logical choice.
The former Arkansas governor seemed to distance himself from Norris' comments, saying "Only John McCain and his hairdresser know for sure"... adding "I'm not going to say he's too old."
McCain quipped, "I'm afraid I may have to send my 95-year-old mother over and wash Chuck Norris' mouth out with soap."
If McCain wins, at 72, he would be the oldest person ever inaugurated as president for a first term. Although he has joked about being "older than dirt and having more scars than Frankenstein", McCain also emphasizes things like hiking the Grand Canyon with his son.
His doctors say the Arizona senator is in good health, although his medical history includes multiple bouts with skin cancer along with injuries from when he was a POW in Vietnam. Friends and staff say they have a hard time keeping up with him, and the candidate himself says he's never felt better.
Here’s my question to you: Do you agree with Chuck Norris that John McCain is too old to be president?

Here's what I agree with, Jack: Chuck Norris is barely qualified to endorse fitness equipment let alone endorse one presidential candidate by insulting another. Since when does it matter what a "C" grade celebrity thinks about anything?
He's not too old. He's too Republican. If Jesus ran on the Republican ticket, he couldn't draw a vote in a convent.
Ryan from Champaign, Illinois writes:
Yes, Jack. Anyone who wants to make the current administration's tax cuts permanent and keep us in Iraq for hundreds of years is exhibiting signs of inflexible thought and dementia. It's not his body that is so old, it is his world outlook.
Are you kidding? Chuck Norris? Who cares what he thinks? I'm a Democrat, but just might vote for McCain, depending on who wins the Democratic primaries.
Jack, Chuck Norris probably felt President Reagan was too old for the office. The old wannabe Texas Ranger should stick with his exercise machine and let Sen. McCain get on with saving our nation. McCain is only old in years. He has fresh ideas and can help repair that broken system, in D.C.
Yes, he is too old. That said, Chuck Norris is an idiot.
My wife and I were just talking about this issue late last week. We both agree we would not vote for McCain due to his age.

I typically hold my opinion on the presidential race until I've heard from Chuck Norris. I'm currently waiting on Britney Spears to issue a statement on global warming.
