Bob Barr hammers the Baptist Mullah

This past Friday, the Baptist Mullah, former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee was speaking to the NRA when there was a noise offstage.  He said it might be Barak Obama running because someone pointed a gun at him.  As a true man of the millennium, Huckabee apologized that afternoon.  Obama had no comment, but Bob Barr did.

From the Bob Barr campaign

Bob Barr, former Member of Congress from Georgia and current candidate for President for the Libertarian Party, today issued the following statement in reaction to Gov. Mike Huckabee’s recent remarks at the National Rifle Association’s National Convention:

“Mike Huckabee showed incredibly poor taste when he joked about a gun pointed at Senator Barack Obama. His words were reckless, callous and harmful to the sports men and women of America and to those of us who fully support the Second Amendment.

“Every candidate for public office inflames the passions of people who fervently disagree with them. To suggest, as Governor Huckabee did, the misuse of a fire arm toward a political candidate is reckless. His attitude toward proper, legal and safe use of fire arms was demeaning to all of us who advocate the right to bear arms. His reprehensible use of a threatening and violent scenario involving a firearm at the NRA’s National Convention was beyond belief.

“I call on all supporters of the Second Amendment and all supporters of civil discourse in our political races to demand a public apology from Governor Huckabee.”

    I cannot understand how anyone who calls themselves a conservative republican can even think about supporting Huckabee whose record is more like a Christian commie than even a RINO.

    I am doing my best to rationalize support for McCain but the closer he moves towards Huckabee the farther I move from McCain..I believe in that old adage about birds of a feather flocking together..and with the two birds it might be Fxxxing us together

    They both have a bit too much totalitarianism for me. BTW, readers – GUYK gave Huckabee the handle of Baptist Mullah.
