My Response to Mike Huckabee

Corrupt News Media Rule #42: “Whenever a Republican says something we consider untoward, every other Republican is required to respond to it. Whenever a Democrat says or does something patently corrupt, destructive or idiotic…  Look over there!  Transexuals!”

So it is with Governor Mike Huckabee, who recently discussed President Obama’s Iran deal with Breitbart editor-in-chief Alexander Marlow. Huckabee said: “This president’s foreign policy is the most feckless in American history. It is so naive that he would trust the Iranians. By doing so, he will take the Israelis and march them to the door of the oven.”

Since everyone who has ever voted Republican will be asked to give a response to this remark, here’s mine:

“I am absolutely shocked that Governor Huckabee would make reference to the Holocaust when discussing a deal that endangers the lives of six million Jews. Why, it’s so absurd — Jon Stewart ought to make one of his funny faces about it. God, I love those. Are they hilarious or what? Just because the president wants to virtually guarantee nuclear weapons to a regime dedicated to Israel’s destruction, that’s no reason to go around getting all Holocausty about it. It’s a completely ridiculous comparison. For one thing, these are totally different Jews we’re talking about killing here. And for another thing, Adolf Hitler was evil. President Obama is just narcissistic and morally obtuse. So when these Jews die, it’ll be different. Okay, not for them, but I mean for us, later, when we make excuses about it. Governor Huckabee should apologize at once. Especially for those music segments on his old Fox show.”

That’s my opinion. And I mean it to sting, by golly.
