Not Funny… At All

Mike Huckabee is a Class A Ass:

During a speech before the National Rifle Association convention Friday afternoon in Louisville, Kentucky, former Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee — who has endorsed presumptive GOP nominee John McCain — joked that an unexpected offstage noise was Democrat Barack Obama looking to avoid a gunman.

“That was Barack Obama, he just tripped off a chair, he’s getting ready to speak,” said the former Arkansas governor, to audience laughter. “Somebody aimed a gun at him and he dove for the floor.”

John NcCain and the GOP should denounce this sick idea of a joke from Huckabee regardless of the fact that Huckabee apologized.

There’s more at: the New York Times, Pandagon, ShakesvilleCorrente, MyDD, Balloon Juice, Open Left, PoliGazette, Daily Kos, Donklephant, The Caucus, Group News Blog, and Hullabaloo. Right wing blog The Other McCain said aptly: “So much for the Huckster’s vice-presidential aspirations.”

    Mike Huckabee’s sick joke is no surprise to me. The fact that he was speaking at the National Rifle Association Convention speaks volumes about the GOP. If a Democrat slips up when speaking, the news media is all over it, but when the Huckster does it, very little said. Ever hear of Fox News,fair and balanced, we report, you decide.

    Mike Huckabee’s comments ? He apologized and his humor did not go over very well and uncalled for remarks ! He knows it and sent an apology in concerning per CNN.

    Truly sick.

    I never understood the media’s infatuation with Huckabee… including liberals like Bill Maher.

    Lou Dobbs had an objective political show on tonight ! That was refreshing ! They said it was smart politics that John Edwards signed up with Obama.None of them think it will change much but they made a reference that it did take the front page and kinda took away from Hillary’s win.That’s what they call smart politics? You may have stole the thunder but you missed the lightening and she’s on the oil companies and gas prices! Obama did well on his come back and clarity on foreign policy and apologized for saying sweetie to the reportor and not answering her question. Lou Dobbs political analyst tonight all said we’re getting a bit foolish and they thought it was silly Obama would have to apologize for his comment,”sweetie.” His foreign policy approach ? Clinton is way ahead on the number 1,here is what I’ll do and number 2, this is the way I will handle it and 3,this is my position and plan. She makes herself clear and clarify’s so you understand. However the political analyst are still not convienced on any one concerning their foreign policy, or the way they will go about Iraq and the war and ending it. Clinton needs to tell us how she’ll do it ! 1,2,3 and explain it to us ! Take a complicated issue that’s complex,break it down and explain it to millions with clarity. She’s good at that and makes herself clear in intent and direction.Let Obama and McCain get caight up in he said,she said while Clinton works on gas prices to high and a plan that will work ! When will our gas holiday begin ? $77.00 dollars for eggs,bacon,bread,butter,6 Lean Cuisine’s,and a pizza.$35.00 to fill up a sports car with a little gas tank ! Everyone at the market is complaining in line and talking politics ! No one says hello at the gas pumps and you can see the frustration building ! Heard one man use a little profanity after he filled his SUV up. The rest of them talk about what they will do, but Clinton explains a plan of action and solution for the problem.She also explains how she will do it .You can also look it up and read exactly in detail when it comes to her agenda direction.We might get a gas holiday ! Hooray,go Clinton ! She’s working on it !

    Trying to be funny ? ” CNN just had him on and he was sincere in his apology.

  6. Peace Out For Unity says:

    The point is are we off topic and not on serious issues and getting to nit pickie on silly things our political leaders are saying and blowing it up, forgetting the main issues that count the most ?That’s what the political analyst said tonight on Lou Dobbs.

    Huckabee needs to draw the line at some point if he feels that he could be the next vice President. The issue at hand is that he demonstrated racism towards a current frontrunner and by doing so, he completely effected his own support. It is evident that by joking that the noise backstage was Obama getting aimed at with a rifle, although at a rifle show. He demonstrated that he is unable to draw the line between when to be funny and when to bve serious.
