Chugg, chugg, chugg, whirrrrr! Virginia Bloggers against Mike Huckabee is back!

January 29, 2014

So…according to the Daily Caller, Mike Huckabee is the new GOP front-runner for 2016.

That only means one thing: time to bring back Virginia Bloggers Against Mike Huckabee.


Say what, Mike?

March 1, 2011

Clearly tired of the “rubber chicken circuit,” Mike Huckabee goes for his usual culinary change-of-pace – his own foot (Politico):

Mike Huckabee seemed to suggest that Barack Obama grew up in Kenya . . .

“One thing that I do know is his having grown up in Kenya, his view of the Brits, for example, very different than the average American,” Huckabee said in response.

“If you think about it, his perspective as growing up in Kenya with a Kenyan father and grandfather, their view of the Mau Mau Revolution in Kenya is very different than ours because he probably grew up hearing that the British were a bunch of imperialists who persecuted his grandfather,” Huckabee added.

Obama grew up where?

Mike Huckabee is dropping hints that he’ll be running for President in 2012.

You know what that means.

Mike Huckabee nukes the fridge

July 1, 2008

So you’re a former presidential candidate who surprised a lot of people and led them to think you have something new on the horizon.  Better than that, you’re a Republican, and call yourself a conservative, putting you in the perfect position to redefine what both mean to win elections, inspire people, and show the nation that the GOP is moving in a fresh, new direction.  You even start-up a PAC to keep your name in the spotlight and advance your vision.

How can you completely demolish everything you have built up and make yourself a complete laughingstock in one day?

If you’re Mike Huckabee, the answer is simple – endorse Don Young (link via NRO - The Corner):

Don is one of the few members of Congress to totally understand the critical state of our nation’s infrastructure and when I was a Governor and Chairman of the National Governors Association, he was one of the few members of Congress who fully recognized the direct link between infrastructure and job creation and economic development.

Read that again.  Not only does the Huckster endorse the man behind the Bridge to Nowhere, he actually praises Young’s record on infrastructure.

You can’t make this stuff up.


Mike Huckabee insults all limited government supporters

May 28, 2008

The man’s ignorance knows no bounds (NROThe Corner, emphasis added):

More from that Huckabee Interview   [Ramesh Ponnuru]

The former governor and presidential candidate also says:

The greatest threat to classic Republicanism is not liberalism; it’s this new brand of libertarianism, which is social liberalism and economic conservatism, but it’s a heartless, callous, soulless type of economic conservatism because it says “look, we want to cut taxes and eliminate government. If it means that elderly people don’t get their Medicare drugs, so be it. If it means little kids go without education and healthcare, so be it.” Well, that might be a quote pure economic conservative message, but it’s not an American message. It doesn’t fly. People aren’t going to buy that, because that’s not the way we are as a people. That’s not historic Republicanism. Historic Republicanism does not hate government; it’s just there to be as little of it as there can be. But they also recognize that government has to be paid for.

He goes on for a while in this vein . . .

For us locals, the Huckster is just an Arkansan Emmett Hanger, but I’m curious to see what John McCain thinks of his rival bashing the best decision he ever made (his opposition to Medicare Part D).

If McCain notices this, we can rest assured that Huckabee will never become McCain’s running mate.

Stay classy, Huck; stay classy

May 19, 2008

Just as people who should know better were seriously considering giving the Huckster the number two spot on the GOP ticket, Dukakabee himself removes all doubt about the tremendous stupidity of the idea (via Tim Watson – I’m Surrounded By Idiots – from whom I basically lifted that last phrase):

AP:

Republican Mike Huckabee responded to an offstage noise during his speech to the National Rifle Association by suggesting it was Barack Obama diving to the floor because someone had aimed a gun at him.

Hearing a loud noise and interrupting his speech, Huckabee said: “That was Barack Obama. He just tripped off a chair. He’s getting ready to speak and somebody aimed a gun at him and he—he dove for the floor.”

There were only a few murmurs in the crowd after the remark.

Ace of Spades put it well, “it’s bad enough to probably keep him off the ticket. Fortunately.”  Indeed.
