Geez. Tough to say exactly. Lame-o is Chris Matthews-wise politically obsessed, but does no investigative work, shows no individuality or independence, and pimps for the dreaded Politico . .
Let’s say he’s a huge hack to begin with, and then we’ll move on from there?
Ol’ Hick Muckabee says President Obama grew up in Kenya? How very retarded of an adult. Ben Smith, to the rescue!
Huckabee didn’t mean it
Mar 1, 2011, | Politico
Mike Huckabee, who has never indulged paranoia about Obama’s birth — and who has generally chided vitriolic attacks on the president and First Lady — pretty clearly misspoke in a radio interview today . .
Huckabee is a proud political side of bacon, come ’round for a second intellectual scalding. He’ll say anything for any reason — ergo, the predictable outrage he earned today. Non-whackos don’t pull this crap. Apologists are too smart to do shit like this as well. What they do is different: they try to rehabilitate hide-torn spastics like Hick-Muck.
It was all a goober!
“Governor Huckabee simply misspoke when he alluded to President Obama growing up in ‘Kenya.’ The Governor meant to say the President grew up in Indonesia.”
Of course! The two countries are indistinguishable. And Huck’s just yer Reggeluhr ‘Merican D00d. What the fuck does he really know?
HUCKABEE: What I know is troubling enough. And one thing that I do know is his having grown up in Kenya, his view of the Brits, for example, very different than the average American.
OOPS. The British were the colonial masters of Kenya. Hick seems to be oddly hot on the heels of a “misspoke.”
HUCKABEE: When he gave the bust back to the Brits –
MALZBERG: Of Winston Churchill.
HUCKABEE: The bust of Winston Churchill, a great insult to the British . .
OOPS. The President didn’t return it, he moved it the residence. For simply misspeaking, Ole’ Mick Huckabee remains quotably loaded for our Commander African Bear.
. . his perspective as growing up in Kenya with a Kenyan father and grandfather, their view of the Mau Mau Revolution in Kenya is very different than . .
OOPS. Britons/Mau-Maus/Kenyans/The Fifties.
BREAKING (and totally unrelated): When not in Hawaii, Barack Obama grew up in Indonesia, the fourth largest country in the world.
