Huckabee is SUCH a jokester

Yeah..uh huh.

From Huffington:

Former GOP hopeful and Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee is back in the news this week, making a splash when he took a hit at Senator Barack Obama during the annual National Rifle Association meeting.

Huckabee made an off-color
joke during his speech in Louisville, Kentucky, when a loud bang was heard off-stage.

"That was Barack Obama," Huckabee quipped, "He Just tripped off a chair. He was getting ready to speak. Somebody aimed a gun at him and he...he dove for the floor."

"During my speech at the N.R.A., a loud noise backstage, that sounded like a chair falling, distracted the crowd and interrupted my speech. I made an off hand remark that was in no way intended to offend or disparage Sen. Obama. I apologize that my comments were offensive. That was never my intention."

OMFG have I mentioned lately how sick and tired I am of the apologetic non-apology. "I didn't mean to offend you while I was offending you". When did the apology take the place of actually accepting responsibility for words and actions?

And here is the rest of it.

Republicans seem to be full of insults lately, among other things. Maybe they're getting nervous, with good reason i'm sure. They're certainly not comedians. It is nice to see them make fools of themselves. well..nothing new there huh?
