In a GOP Primary shocker, Former Speaker Newt Gingrich easily won the South Carolina Primary yesterday. The results of yesterday's vote seemed to surprise everyone, except actor/ famous tough guy Chuck Norris, who endorsed the former speaker.
They say that the fear of spiders is called arachnophobia. The fear of closed places is called claustrophobia. The fear of Chuck Norris is called 'common sense'.
In exit polls, many South Carolinians believed that the former actor was 'watching them' as they were in the voting booth.
"Chuck Norris got in a staring match with the sun once, and the sun blinked. 'Damned right I voted for Newt!", one voter said in Columbia.
"We sit around the old campfire telling Chuck Norris stories." one ghost in Charleston said. "Yeah, we were afraid of what Norris could still do to us if we failed to vote for Gingrich".
Even the dreaded Bogeyman made it to the polls.
"Last night, I had to check under my bed for Chuck Norris. Then, I made sure that I made it to my local polling station to fill the oval for Newt".
Many political pundits agree that Chuck Norris can be an extremely potent ally for the former Speaker. It will be interesting to see if the 'Norris Effect' carries Gingrich to victory in the Florida Primary on January 31.
