Megyn Kelly, you’re all right.
Say what you will about Fox News (which hopefully is very little, because my god, talk about bottling up the worst conservative arguments into one place and giving them a megaphone), one thing is true: their own Megyn Kelly, right-leaning host of “The Kelly File,” is kind of a bad ass. Despite being a conservative talking head, she’s been making waves for regularly straying from the Fox party line, particularly when it comes to feminism and women’s rights. The New York Times already dubbed the Kelly renaissance a “Megyn moment,” and she’s gaining fans across both political parties. One person who may be less of a fan now? Conservative blowhard, Mike Huckabee. Keep reading »
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 »
