Just as people who should know better were seriously considering giving the Huckster the number two spot on the GOP ticket, Dukakabee himself removes all doubt about the tremendous stupidity of the idea (via Tim Watson – I’m Surrounded By Idiots – from whom I basically lifted that last phrase):
Republican Mike Huckabee responded to an offstage noise during his speech to the National Rifle Association by suggesting it was Barack Obama diving to the floor because someone had aimed a gun at him.
Hearing a loud noise and interrupting his speech, Huckabee said: “That was Barack Obama. He just tripped off a chair. He’s getting ready to speak and somebody aimed a gun at him and he—he dove for the floor.”
There were only a few murmurs in the crowd after the remark.
Ace of Spades put it well, “it’s bad enough to probably keep him off the ticket. Fortunately.” Indeed.
