Here's the Video That Proves Rick Perry Is the New Chuck Norris

September 15, 2011

Rick Perry is the new Chuck Norris, The Atlantic's Chris Good explains. The Twitter feed RICK PERRY FACTS has stolen the sensibility of the "Chuck Norris Facts" meme of a few years ago -- "Chuck's tears cure cancer. Too bad he'd never cried" -- and it's true, Perry probably has a better claim on actual badassery as a politician than Norris does as a Hollywood actor. The governor's Texas swag is undeniable -- even when he was wearing comfy orthopedic shoes at the last Republican primary debate. 

Want proof? Here's a video Perry made for the National Rifle Association's convention in April. It opens with a bunch of old guys in t-shirts shooting big guns at stationary targets while the camera shakes to boost the suspense. Then the video cuts to a guy in a black polo shooting stuff -- it's Rick Perry!
Howdy. This is Rick Perry and I'm speaking to you from LaRue Tactical, maker of the most reliable and accurate combat weapons in the world -- based right here, in Leander, Texas. ... 
 
I want to thank Wayne LaPierre and Chris Cox and my fellow members of the National Rifle Association for your support throughout my career -- in particular, this last election. ...
 
You know, it's times like these, when the federal government keeps growing and spending -- it keeps rising -- the liberal legislators keep trying to limit our Second Amendment rights -- the NRA is the most important group out there...
