Heart of Darkness?

This week, the Democratic National Convention kicks off in Charlotte, North Carolina. But despite the eagerness of American Democrats to put on their pageant and get the word out about the awesomeness of four more years of Obama, there's still some lingering insanity from last week's Republican National Convention, and it comes in the form of action superstar and former Texas Ranger, Chuck Norris.
Any recent cool points Norris bought for himself appearing as one of the ensemble in The Expendables 2, paying off his debt as a Mike Huckabee supporter in 2008, have all been lost in an instant with this video, which, to say the least, is the worst Romney infomercial ever to hit the internet.
To break it down succinctly, Norris and his fembot wife are concerned that America is "going down the path of socialism of something much worse." They want to encourage evangelicals to get out the vote invoking that quote from Edmund Burke about how evil triumphs when good people do nothing, and further suggesting Obama's re-election will plunge the United States into 1,000 years of darkness. There was also a salute to Saint Ronald Reagan in there somewhere.
But why take my word for it? Let's go to crazy already in progress...

Hard to believe this old man quivering at the idea of a 51-year-old, Harvard-educated law professor winning the presidency was once the star of Delta Force and Missing in Action. He fought Bruce Lee for God's sake, and Obama has him seeing the end of days coming in the windshield?!
Speaking of which, I enjoyed this speech the first time I saw it in this clip from a popular movie:

Of course, I think most political observers, in these partisan times, would consider dogs and cats living together to be progress.
