Big Gomer's Deadly New GOP Gig

Failed GOP presidential wannabee Mike Huckabee took a cheap shot at Barack Obama during his speech at this week's annual National Rifle Association meeting.

As Huckabee was speaking at the Louisville, Kentucky meeting, a loud bang was heard off-stage.

"That was Barack Obama," Huckabee quipped, "He just tripped off a chair. He was getting ready to speak. Somebody aimed a gun at him and he...he dove for the floor."

Wow. It looks like Huckabee has accepted the assignment of rousing the gun toting GOP hatemongers who'll be the most likely goons to try to assassinate Obama if he gets too close to the Oval Office.
It's not funny and I'm not kidding.
I have been saying for as long as Sen. Obama has been in this race, like JFK, RFK, MLK and other inspirational Democrats, he stands a frightening chance of being murdered by the GOP and their operatives if he gets elected.

For Huckabee, a so-called man of God, to make a joke like this is inexcusable.
Of course he quickly issued an apology, but the damage was done. The seed was planted.

Let's please not pretend it takes more than just one "harmless joke" about shooting Obama to get some gun-toting cretin's mind turning. And it looks like Rove or whoever is serving as Rove's stand-in has suckered Huckabee right into the master plan.

I present myself to you all here.

Shameless maker of horrible jokes, even sarcastic ones sometimes... Ok more often than I would care to admit.

Also, someone who lives with integrated feet in the multiplicity of my words - meaning I am deeply spiritual and I drop f-bombs all the time too.

So having said all that, I will say this now...

Huckabee is a f*cktard of impossibly f*cktardian proportions.

And while I am loathe to judge another's spirituality, the way he speaks of this (and has made other such "jokes-hehehe") is about as un-Godly as I can imagine.

It is this very sort of cruel, deliberate joking that is the cover for hatred, prejudice and all manner of cruelty.

And often death.

Fran, the Republicans co-opting Christianity as a justification for their evil agendas surely will be smited like crazy once they reach Hell.
I think the real Christian clergy should file a class action suit against them for fucking up their brand.

Distributorcap said...

this is NOT funny....

and of course the lame ass MSM says practicaly nothing

and where is his 'apology'

and i hear gomer is angling for the veep -- oh please please please give it to him

karenzipdrive said...

D-cap, he apologized five hours later but the bell cannot be unrung, if you ax me.
I'd love for McBush to select him as his veep but I think I'd like Mitts Romney even better. With all this FLDS/ Warren Jeffs stuff in the news, he'd be a great choice.

FranIAm said...

Having an abundance of experience with abusive types I can tell that along with the "just joking" fucktardery and assholery they are also quite adept at the lame, slightly later apology.

It is pure b.s.!

There's nothing like Repugnican humor.


bigsis said...

McBush, GOOD ONE Zip. May I use that name from now on?

karenzipdrive said...

Sure, sis, but I'm not at all sure I coined the phrase. I mean, I may have but it's not that big a leap to come up with it.

Dusty said...

FranIam...awesome fucking comment. And yes, you are very spiritual dear lady :)

As I said on my blog...its complete and utter bullshittery that Huck even thought it...much less opened his piehole and said it out loud.

These 'people' want to be President? WTF...the Secret Service must of winced and cussed ol Huck when they heard about it. I wouldn't want that job for a million bucks an hour.

CLD said...

I still can't believe he said that out loud -- and actually thought it was funny. He is seriously deranged. And the Secret Service should be knocking on his door to begin a long-ass debriefing right about now.

dguzman said...

I always knew Fuckabee was a complete idiot, but I had no idea he could sink to this level. And as many have said, no one would make a joke like this in public unless they regularly made jokes like that in private as well. The guy is complete scum.

karenzipdrive said...

Huckabee announced over the weekend to anyone who'd listen how much he'd love to be the vice president.
With McBush teetering on the edge of death from old age and whatever illnesses he's concealing from us, I'm sure Pork Chops Huckabee would love to ascend to the thrown and just haul off and change our name to the United States of Jesus.

Dusty said...

United States of Jesus-Touche' Karen! ;)

I hope he sunk himself..I really do. The MSM is of course giving him a free pass on his disgusting remark...but they always give the Rethugs a pass.

karenzipdrive said...

I dunno, Dusty, the news of Huckabee blowing the whistle signifying open hunting season on Obama hit the media only moments after he said it, and his apology followed only 5 hours after that.
Anyone who hasn't yet connected the dots between rational fears about Obama being assassinated and NRA proponents fanning the flames is either in denial or rooting for the bad guys.

Greyseeker said...

Boy... He's SURE been chowin' down in the last few months, I didn't even recognize him, I thought it was just some anonymous fatso instead of the morally challenged Repug that he IS.

karenzipdrive said...

Well, I have to admit I mined the Internet for these photos which were taken before he lost weight.
It's just a matter of time before they are accurate again, though, mark my words.
