I woke up this morning hearing about this:
And I thought I must still have been a little bit asleep because that couldn’t really have happened. But there it is. And I have all kinds of thoughts about it, but I’m not going to talk about any of that.
I read about the same speech tonight on Crooks and Liars. C&L is a blog I’ve never come across before … and if the comments on this post are any indication of its readership, I don’t think I’ll be back. Please keep in mind that was Mike Huckabee up there at that NRA podium. Mike Huckabee all by himself giving a speech, trying to make an off-the-cuff funny. Mike Huckabee not in the throes of some creepy speechifying mind meld with his wife or anything like that. So explain this, the very first comment to the post: “Screw him and his fat ass wife.”
What? What? And that’s not the only comment about Huckabee’s wife. Another commenter seems to suggest that Mrs. Huckabee should be raped and that that would be ‘hilarious.’
I don’t get this. I mean, of course I do get it, but I’m still totally appalled.
