Huckabee Compares “Running for Office” to “Being Waterboarded”

Black Garbage FlyFrom Think Progress:

This morning, CNN ran a story “tracking the strain furious campaigning puts on the human body” for the presidential candidates. During the segment, former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee joked that his campaign schedule is not providing enough time to sleep and that, for him, is “like being waterboarded”:

HUCKABEE: I’m finding just out how long I can go sleep deprived. You know, running for office is sort of like being waterboarded, I think.

Watch it:

Can we waterboard Mike Huckabee so he can make more objective comparison?

houseflyHuckabee is quickly racking up more gaffs than Dan Quayle, the previous crowned “Republican Idiot In Political Office” before George W. Bush. Let’s never forget how the GOPFruitFly howled with laughter at the expected stupidity of Bill Clinton as governor of Arkansas. In hysterics, thanks in large part to Rush Limbaugh, they painted Clinton with the mental image of Huck Finn. Now it appears the jokes on them, because Mike Huckabee is the paradoxical reality of everything they thought was Bill Clinton. Let’s wait for him to go to Latin American and reminisce about wish he’d taken more “Latin” when he was in school…

  1. Did he mean that it was like him being waterboarded, or the rest of America for having to listen to him?
