He beat the sun in a staring contest, scared Waldo into hiding, and counted to infinity (twice). Most recently Chuck Norris endorsed Roy Moore in the special Alabama senate race.

"Judge Roy Moore is the real deal: He's tough, tested, and has a spine of steel," said the Walker-Texas Ranger better known for his roundhouse kicks than political endorsements.

The Moore campaign is making the most of the endorsement.

"Judge Moore has never backed down from standing for what is right, and that's exactly what he'll do in the U.S Senate," Norris said in a statement. "That's why the Washington establishment is spending millions trying to defeat Judge Moore."

That much is true. No one knows what Moore will do. He's been removed from the Alabama state Supreme Court twice. He lost his job the first time in 2003 for defying the U.S. Supreme Court's 2003 ruling on religious displays in government buildings, and the second time for defying the Supreme Court's same-sex marriage decision.

The judge reviled on the Left as a totem of intolerance has led incumbent Sen. Luther Strange and Rep. Mo Brooks in two of the last three polls. None of the candidates are expected to win a majority of the vote in next week's election, triggering a September runoff.

If Norris starred in a television spot, his support could have some real power ahead of that contest. Regardless, Moore is describing the endorsement in terms of a bar fight.

"Chuck Norris is exactly the kind of guy you want on your side," Moore said, "and I'm honored to have his support as we continue this fight to take our Alabama values to Washington."
