In case you read your liberal press of late, former GOP presidential candidate Mike Huckabee was speaking Friday to the NRA, when there was a loud bang. Instead of continuing his speech, Huckabee aimed a very stupid joke at Barack Obama:
While Huckabee was speaking there was a noise offstage which he quickly quipped was Barack Obama falling off a chair. The audience chuckled and Huckabee, he of the allegedly quick wit, decided to go for what he thought might be a bigger laugh. Wrong. Huckabee added this, "Somebody aimed a gun at him and he dove for the floor."Huckabee later apologized for his "offhand remark," saying it was not "intended to offend or disparage Senator Obama." Obama, for his part, refused to comment. Yet, his liberal minions are still up in arms over Huckabee's gall. But what's funnier than joking about killing a U.S. Senator? How about when a Democrat governor from Kentucky makes a "joke" about President Bush getting assassinated just days before?
Gov. Steve Beshear, who has remained neutral during the presidential primary and who will serve as a Kentucky superdelegate at the national convention in August, avoided talking about the Democratic candidates by criticizing President Bush.Of course, if a tree falls in the woods and no one hears it, it didn't fall, right? And that, my friends, pretty much sums up your liberal press.
"When I mention that Democrats are problem solvers, I can think of only one Republican who can be a problem solver -- that is Vice President Dick Cheney if he would just take George on a hunting trip," Beshear said. Cheney accidentally shot fellow quail hunter Harry Whittington in Texas in 2006.
