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.
