Huckabee Gets Endorsement from Pro Wrestler

LITTLE ROCK, AR - Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee announces that professional wrestler Ric Flair is backing his bid for the White House.  Flair is known in the ring as the "Nature Boy."  He plans to campaign with Huckabee on Saturday at a tailgate party before the Clemson-South Carolina football game in Columbia.

Flair said Huckabee is an "authentic conservative."  He ended his endorsement with his trademark yell: "Whooooooooo!"  The platinum-haired wrestler has played heroes and villians in the ring, always with elaborate roles sporting rhinestones and peacock feathers.
