Huckabee Takes Swipe At Sarah Palin
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.
