Huckabee Takes Swipe At Sarah Palin
http://www.riehlworldview.com/carnivorous_conservative/2009/11/huckabee-takes-swipe-at-sarah-palin.h ^ | November 9, 2009 | Dan Riehl

Posted on 11/09/2009 12:06:25 PM PST by DB9

The Huckster took a swipe at Sarah Palin and he did it with a smile. He does everything with a smile, being far from the first snake I've seen that has himself one of those. At least she isn't a Mormon. He might cut her a little bit of slack. Why am I thinking Huck has now read every Palin column Andy Sullivan has ever written?

The Hucky puck doesn't like it that he's being overshadowed by both Palin and Romney, who comes up in the interview, as well. Is Huck's real problem that Sarah may have blown him off as far as appearing on his show? Or is he laying the ground work for 2010? My guess is, it's a little bit of both. The dude should shave his legs and see how he looks in a skirt. Maybe he can compete, maybe not. But it's fairly clear that whatever bit of rock star rep Huck had because he plays the bass is destined to be overshadowed by Sarah Palin no matter what he does.

I doubt any swipes he takes at Palin are going to win him many new fans. And that's just fine and dandy as far as I'm concerned.

“Some of the people who had excoriated me and really been very dismissive of me for views that I had taken, and labeled me anything from a populist to an ignoramus — the same people have been very defensive [of] and laudatory to Sarah Palin,” Huckabee noted, adding that he’d invited her to appear on his weekly Fox show but “could never get any contact.”

“I’m glad she’s getting the props — I know I’m not nearly as attractive,” he said with a guileless grin.

Huckabee is unceasingly pleasant and mild, even in relating his grievances. The same sense of humor is there, too. But so are an obvious frustration and a barely concealed bitterness, as well as the underlying question of whether Huckabee really wants to go through with this again or, instead, succumb fully to the showbiz side that he began polishing as a teenage disc jockey in Hope, Ark.

Keep hope alive, dope. But don't let your Fox contract expire. You might find yourself having problems winning the next job you might desire.

The Huckster might as well be Mormon. He’s not going to be POTUS.

No, but he can screw up the Republican nominee in ‘12.

I have never, ever liked Schmuckabee. He is a whiny narcissist, and an extremely arrogant one to boot.

Why do people give this jerk a damn TV show?

Sheesh.

Huck is a slimeball, he’s completely disingenuous.. he and Mitt both need to be jetisonned out of the pool quickly. They are welcome in the party, but neither of them should remotely have any shot at being the standard bearer for the party. They are both two faced political whores.

Huck is nothing but a spoiler for the Democrats. All he can do is hurt a promising conservative, be it Sarah or someone else.

Never forget the deal Huck had with McCain to cut Romney and Thompson out of the race. He basically disenfranchised most Republicans.

Not for nothing, but while Sarah Palin nominated the conservative, Hoffman in the NY-23 race, the Huckster sat on his hands and did nothing. If he can’t man up now, what’s he going to do as president? The last thing we need is another man-child in the WH.

My issue with this ‘snake’ is that he doesn’t have the backbone to attack his victim face to face; he does it by innuendo. But, then any man with a penchant for sheep, young children, a moral superiority compolex and a rumored cocaine habit should be careful with what he says; because it doesn’t take a genius IQ to play his game.

For my penny's worth, the minute Chuck Norris revealed to Geraldo that Huckabee might go along with Norris' idea of granting automatic citizenship to illegal aliens for 5 years' worth of work in the states, the huck's "maybe" 2012 hopes are buried in concrete 10 feet under.

Saying Huckabe is a “Pastor” is akin to saying Tammy Faye Bakker is a make-up artist.
He is a political snake oil salesman without a sincere bone in his pudgy body.

Huckabee is a nice man, but will NEVER be a serious contender for President. At best he could be a spoiler that could produce a weaker candidate IMO.

No Huckabee, no McCain, no Romney.
Not going to fly, we nee new, bold ambitions and attractive.
None of the above cuts it or has a chance unless Democrats by 2012 give us a 14% unemployment along with a total banking and stock market crash. (which could happen)

And Huck knows it too. The minute the MSM determines Huck is more of a threat to Democrats than Republicans to his right, he'll have incoming MSM fire on him akin to that of an AC-130H Spectre Gunship.

[opinion] ... Our next president will be a "strong" Catholic (if it's not Obama), for it is only through Catholicism (via the Body of Christ, Rosary, etc.) that one can battle and win against the stronghold the devil has on America now, both through 30+ years of abortion, and our current administration. So Huckabee and Palin or anyone else ... return "Home" first, then seek the election.

I tried to watch Huck’s show once, but couldn’t take it. It reminded me of Hee-Haw without the jokes. I wouldn’t vote for him ever.

At least she isn't a Mormon.

She also does not write letters to help rapists get out of prison early. Nor does she raise taxes more than the 2 previous democrat governors did. Like the huckster did.
The huckster and cut and run Paul were the only 2 people running on the Republican side who were worse than McCrazy. If the Huckster wins the primary we can count on 4 more years of Osama.

If Huck doesn't need proof to make an innuendo; why does anyone else? These are the rules the he created, I simply have chosen to play by those rules. He threw the gauntlet down; I just picked it up.

IMHO, you play by the rules set forth by the attacker, as they are not wise enough to understand the merits of debating based upon facts and logic - why, let's Mormon bash instead. Let's attack Palin because she looks hot in a swimsuit. So, I thought it only reasonable that some baseless allegations get tossed his way too.

Just some simple yes/no questions. So, does Huckabee still beat his wife? Has he sought help for a cocaine addiction? Has he overcome his penchant for small children, sheep and hamsters?

Huckster will never get a single vote in this house— not even for dog catcher or even dog walker.

His comments about Mormons and Mitt Romney were nothing to be proud of.
I am not Mormon- nor will I ever be, but his behavior was not acceptable.
Now he is going after someone I do support.

Careful, Huckster.
Some people like me have very long memories.

I was a strong sarah palin supporter but it is time for her to come and face the media and show her knowldege on any issue or any question. She just cannot walk into 2012 primary and get the nomination for the president. I like her issues and I agree she will make a great candidate. I am fine that, she is making some money but, if she does have any interest in running for president or any other position in future, she better come out and articulate her views. Just posting in Face book is not enough

He’s an emotionally extremely needy man with an almost complete disregard for the truth, with one thing going for him: he knows how to lay on the Christianity like the wolf in the sheep’s woolen outfit.

A certain number of people are going to vote for him because of the shellacked and shiny Christianity he talks about more than displays. Just like many blacks voted for Obama BECAUSE he was black.

Huckster talks about being Christian, but he’s no conservative. He just wants to be loved and adored no matter what, like Clinton, Obama, and Gingrich.
