My, oh my...

Fox News is reporting (front page, mind you) that Sylvester Stallone (*gasp*) is backing Arizona senator John McCain. The article goes on to discuss (seriously) who is a more powerful (ok, so they used the word "badder,") endorsement - Stallone or Chuck Norris

My thoughts are, and correct me if I'm wrong, that this endorsement is infinitely more relevant.

"...On the 35th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court ruling, Norma McCorvey (a.k.a. "Jane Roe," who later changed her views on abortion in the mid-90s) gave [Presidential candidate Ron] Paul her official endorsement today.

"I support Ron Paul for president because we share the same goal, that of overturning Roe v. Wade. He has never wavered on the issue of being pro-life and has a voting record to prove it. He understands the importance of civil liberties for all, including the unborn," she said at a press conference in Washington this morning..."

PS: A search on with the keywords "Jane Roe" and "Ron Paul" will yield you absolutely zero results. Apparantly Fox News decided that it wasn't important enough to print, or perhaps they feared it might too accurately portray a candidate they so enjoy labeling "fringe," "liberal" and "extreme."
