The Fix - Why is Mike Huckabee criticizing Natalie Portman? (Poll)
Huckabee, fresh off saying that the President was raised in Kenya (but meant to say Indonesia) and was so influenced by the Mau Mau Revolt that he hates America instinctively. That is why he wanted to be President. Don't think about it, or then you might see the lack of logic.
But now, he is taking aim at Natalie Portman who is (gasp) pregnant and wasn't married at the time of her (gasp) pregnancy. Oh Noes! Of course, as even the Huck has to acknowledge, Portman is marrying her fiance. But the damage occurred when Portman actually had sex outside marriage. Because that is unforgivable. And an easy sell to the religious right base who is easily distracted by women having sex or gays having sex, or people thinking about having sex (see a trend here?).
David Brooks said tonight that he didn't think Huckabee would run this time. I think he is hoping, because as a semi-thinking Republican, he recognizes that Huckabee is no better than Palin or Gingrich. None of them should be allowed to govern a PTA, much less a country.
