I think it's hilarious that Senator McCain is trying to portray himself as the candidate of change after 7 years of supporting nearly everything Bush has done (ok, so he wasn't keen on Torture). I think it's even more hilarious that Chuck Norris is calling for a revolution - a voting revolution - in his latest article.

Apparently Mr. Norris would like to see a better crop of people running America. After nearly 8 years of President Bush, I'm inclined to agree with him. But of course he likes Bush. He probably likes most congressional republicans. He seems to agree with their stated goals.
A voter revolution would usher in politicians who make sweeping and radical changes, including disposing of the unconstitutional Internal Revenue Service and replacing it with a "fair tax." These are leaders who genuinely commit to the America established by our Founders, drastically cut government waste, immediately stop pork-barrel spending, reject political perks and lobbyists, quit borrowing from other nations (such as China), cease imperialism and nation building, lessen the flow of so much government aid overseas, and bring back production and pride in American commerce, etc.
Other than ending our occupation of Iraq, most of that is pretty conservative. And if President Bush couldn't make much headway after 9/11 with a Republican Congress, well, I'm not sure Chuck Norris's voter revolution has much of a chance.
