Huckabee Needs a New Day Job

Ted Nugent, Reverend Huckabee's role model for Republican childrenSo, we all know that Former Governor Mike Huckabee is part of Fox’s Newsertainment Industry.  Tonight, he announced that his heart wasn’t into running for president.  It’s more likely he’s been enjoying the money in his pocket.  Let’s just remind ourselves  that Mike Huckabee is a complete kook.

First, he made his announcement sitting next to Ted Nugent just one week after Fox News spent the week tut-tutting the Obamas for  inviting Poet and Rapper Common to the White House.  I’ll just let you see one of Ted Nugent’s finer moments.  Remember he not only is the one hit wonder dude of “Cat Scratch Fever”.  He’s a  gun fanatic and right-to-lifer only in this concert moment, he seems to be more gun crazed than pro-life.  Yes, he’s telling then Senator Obama to suck on a machine gun and then Senator Clinton to ride it into the sunset and he calls her a worthless “bitch” and “whore”. I guess suggesting suicide for Senators is a Republican Family Value.  And this language and gun worship would be different from gangsta rap lyric hows?

Yup, he’s certainly an uplifting addition to a show hosted by a baptist preacher! Which gun would Jayzuz choose?

Then there’s this enterprise via Political Animal.

This week, Huckabee launched a new educational company called Learn Our History. As the Fox News personality sees it, mean liberals have destroyed history lessons, and he intends to put things right. “America’s youth aren’t excited about our past because they’re being taught history in a way that minimizes what has made America a beacon of hope around the world for over 200 years,” Huckabee said in a press release.

As part of the Learn Our History approach, kids will follow the wacky adventures of the Time Travel Academy, an animated group of kids who offer lessons by riding their bikes to the past. Those who buy Learn Our History’s shameless, nationalistic propaganda lessons will finally get “historically accurate and unbiased education.”

You may either want to drink something or sit down before you watch this.  Steve Benen rightly called it Beyond Parody.  I don’t remember any black disco dancers going on shooting sprees back in the late 70s. Do you?  Was that some problem I missed because I lived in Nebraska? Oh, and is there some reason why the know it all girl looks like Eva Braun?

I’d say we dodged a bullet here but I don’t want to incite Ted Nugent any more.  However, if any of your schools consider Huckabee’s version of American History, I think I’d pull your kids out pronto!

Which brings me to another question.  If they’ve decided the rapture is later this month,   why do any of them even bother?

      I always stop just short of saying that you have to be mentally ill to believe in any of that nonsense. However, …….those who believe in “the rapture” and “that they know God’s will” are almost certainly mentally ill. In my opinion, Huckabee is either a hustler or he is completely insane. Either way, it is very troubling that many people listen to this guy.

    The Nugent video does not play.

    This is amazing in terms of what his sales volume will be. There ha to be a sugar daddy some where either putting up the investment or funding it all.

    music is nice. I never understood what the appeal of Huckabee was.

    Huckabee’s wallet is named heart??? Yup, not surprised and since when is he a history authority….

    I didn’t know all Common’s work, but not surprised at the back tracking.

    I think we need to Divest From Misogyny, that there is no mistake that it isn’t an acceptable notion to attack women, then expect to be given a pass. WOMEN are human beings too!
