Superman Endorses Texas Governor Rick Perry For President

Superman Dean Cain, that is.

Dean Cain, who played the Man of Steel on ABC's Lois and Clark, appeared on Fox News and offered up his support for presidential candidate Texas Governor Rick Perry.

A clip was then shown of Governor Perry stating that his super hero of choice would be Superman - as Superman "came to save the United States."

Cain then agreed with the sentiment.

Of course, once the leftist blogs got a hold of this, such as PolitcusUsa, they threw a hairy conniption.

Politcus (or is it Politkus?) went so far as to include pages from recent issues of the comics books.

Among them, was a panel from Action Comics #900 which featured Big Blue renouncing his U.S. citizenship - and commenting that "Truth, Justice, and the American Way" was not enough anymore. While that particular Superman story was written by a guest writer, and not a part of regular Superman continuity, Politkus went on to state how Superman is a socialist and all that jazz.

Last I checked, Superman wasn't a bad guy. Also, did he ever forcefully take food off one man's plate to give to another?

When it's your choice that's called charity.

Anyway, while saving the U.S. might be a stretch, I thought I would point out what "Truth, Justice, and the American Way" really means, as a lot of folks seem to think it to be in line with politics or with U.S. Government policy.

And I'll let former Superman writer Chris Roberson do it for me:

lfe, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness
