Anti-humor

See Mike Huckabee standing there all by himself in that picture? I think that's the way it's gonna stay, based on his comments today in Louisville.

Huckabee quips about gun aimed at Obama

By Brett Barrouquere

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

The Obama campaign had no comment.

************************

Are you kidding me?! If Huckabee was holding out any hope for a VP spot (a foolish hope, in my opinion), he just blew it big time.

This is about as funny as a heart attack, Mike. Given the real concerns that some people have that Obama might be a target--so much so that some are afraid that a vote for him will put him and his family in harm's way--and given the sad history of assassinations in our country, this is just NOT FUNNY. Who wrote this? Howard Stern?

I actually own a gun, and my Dad taught me to shoot when I was in junior high. He also taught me that guns are no laughing matter, they are not toys, and that you never EVER point a gun--whether loaded or not--at a person in jest. Serious business, and Huckabee's lame attempt at a joke is more than not funny...it's disgusting.

Oh my god, this is so not funny. What kind of mentality says things like this and what was he hoping to gain out of it. This man wanted to run for President of the United States? Just goes to show how well we do not know people when disgusting comments like that come from just below the surface. Frightening.
