Mike Huckabee has been going on a bit of a whirlwind tour promoting his book Gods, Guns, Grits and Gravy. The purpose of this book, he says, is to explain “Real America” to those of us who live in cities, as though small town America is something we cannot possibly understand.
He calls certain areas of the country–the coasts and major cities–”Bubblevilles” and the rest of the country “Bubbaville.” Which, were I to live in the latter, I would find incredibly insulting. He claims that those of us who live in these “Bubblevilles” are, for all intents and purposes, living in “Bubbles” where we don’t have to understand those who live in “Bubbaville.” He seems to think that we think everyone in “Bubbaville” is stupid because they did not go to Harvard. Or something. That we don’t understand their down-home, wholesome, common sense ways. Keep reading »
In last night’s State of The Union speech, President Barack Obama finally got it together to start proposing some of the things the American people thought they voted him in to do in the first place. He detailed his plan to offer free community college, to raise taxes on the rich to pay for childcare, and tax cuts for everyone else.
The GOP was not pleased. Keep reading »
Potential presidential candidate Mike Huckabee appeared on t”The Daily Show” last night to generally spew oddities and further put his foot in his mouth in regards to great American patriot Beyonce. He insisted that young girls want to be more like Bey (well, duh) and that she carries on “the culture of crude” with her “vulgar” dancing: “Do you know any parent who has a daughter who says, ‘Honey, if you make really good grades, someday when you’re 12 or 13 we’ll get you your own stripper pole?’” Seriously! This is an actual thing he said! Thankfully, Stewart spends a full seven minutes ceremoniously tearing him a new one. [NYMag.com]
Potato-faced nincompoop Mike Huckabee has advice for practically everyone, and is more than willing to dish it out as he goes around promoting his new book, which is seriously titled God, Guns, Grits and Gravy. An appropriately classy and dignified title for a book by a man who wishes to be President of these United States, no?
In his book, Huckabee offers up all sorts of wisdom about things. Things like how if we allow gay marriage to be legal, bisexual people will want to have two spouses, because that is obviously how being bisexual works. According to Mike Huckabee. He also goes on and on, apparently, about how he thinks Beyoncé and Jay-Z are the actual worst ever, and definitely poor role models for the children of this country. Keep reading »
“If the Democrats want to insult the women of America by making them believe that they are helpless without Uncle Sugar coming in and providing for them a prescription each month for birth control because they cannot control their libido or their reproductive system without the help of government then so be it! Let us take that discussion all across America because women are far more than the Democrats have played them to be … [Democrats] think that women are nothing more than helpless and hopeless creatures whose only goal in life is to have the government provide for them birth control medication.”
This is former Republican Governor Mike Huckabee of Arkansas at the Republican National Committee’s winter meeting, finding new and creative ways to insult women. Uncle Sam as sugar daddy? Women who use birth control can’t keep their legs together? What about women impregnated by rape***? I guess us ladies should be controlling our reproductive systems with our God-loving minds and the power of prayer, not with contraception and medicine and SCIENCE. Just keep talking, old white Republican men! Keep talking all the way up until the 2016 election. (***They’re probably sluts who were asking for it.) [Talking Points Memo]
