McCain's answer to Chuck

According to Wilford Brimley, voting for John McCain is the right thing to do.

"Wilford Brimley is our response to Chuck Norris," McCain said on his campaign bus. "He's huge in every way."

UPDATE: Mitt Romney has more money that McCain, but McCain said he's having a better time than his rival. After a lengthy grilling by reporters on his response to the recent Romney ad assault, McCain said that he wanted to run a positive campaign and he was "dedicated" to having fun.

"We kind of do have a happy group of people," he said, looking around his tour bus, where he sat with reporters, strategists and former New Hampshire congressman Charlie Bass, who has endorsed his candidacy.

When asked if he thought the Romney campaign was not as much fun, McCain responded with a vigorous nod.
