Huckabee, stop digging already!

Earlier this week, Mike "I'm not running for president but pay attention anyway" Huckabee attacked Natalie Portman for being a unwed preggers (and "proud/glamorizing single motherhood) Hollywood "starlet".

First off, "Hollywood starlets" are generally NOT Oscar winners. And just as an aside, Mikey, Natalie is an Israeli/American who was born in Jerusalem. Just so you can have that little factoid next time you spout crap.

Anyway, Mikey tried to backtrack his comments on Friday and just made it worse.

He said
"My comments were about the statistical reality that most single moms are very poor, under-educated, can't get a job, and if it weren't for government assistance, their kids would be starving to death. That's the story that we're not seeing, and it's unfortunate that society often glorifies and glamorizes the idea of having children out of wedlock."

Good freaking gravy gopher guts, Mike!

Do you actually BELIEVE that most single moms CHOOSE to be single moms?
REALLY? Are you THAT freakin clueless???

Most single moms I know were battered wives who left the "sanctity of marriage" to save her life and the lives of her children.

Other single moms I know are war widows. Yep! Those shameful single moms whose husbands went off to war and now they are sucking at the public teets on the backs of the taxpayers.

More other single moms I know were abandoned by their "sanctified by marriage" Christian husbands for a younger, hotter and/or richer model (just ask Newt Gingrich, John Edwards, Mark Sanford, John McCain, and on and on).

I also went to high school back in the late 1960s with a sweet but quietly Christian who was raped by her Christian father numerous times and gave birth multiple times and she never graduated. She was the oldest of five daughters and her father raped the younger girls as well. And the entire family lived in a short Airstream trailer on the side of the back road not even a mile from my house. A child raped by a family member should just sit down and shut up and give birth. sigh...

Give this "sanctified by marriage" crap a rest! Christian-sanctified is a freakin joke. I know gay partners who have lived decades in solid, proven, loving and monogamous relationships. I can't say the same for the Christian families I've know for the more than half century I've lived.

Mike Huckabee, I am very impressed with your guitar skills, but your "Christian values" leave a lot to be desired. Jesus would be ashamed.

Someone intervene and take Mike's shovel away. The hole he's digging is already too deep.

Oh, Mike... How about you explain this to Sarah about Bristol....


  1. Good post.

    For years, bashing Hollywood was Republican gold. With so many out of work, these GOPer games just aren't amusing anymore. Furthermore, there is the problem of their hypocrisy - as you mentioned, Bristol Palin easily comes to mind. In fact, she is actually profiting off of her unwed teen motherhood. Natalie Portman is 29 and an established actress.

  2. thanks Linda!
    It's just insane now with the Republicans and I just can't figure out how they think they are winning hearts and minds with this nonsense.
