'Huck shoots own foot'

Posted By on Wed, May 21, 2008 at 7:20 PM

Brummett tomorrow replays The Huckster's Obama assassination joke, his propensity for juvenile, crude and stupid remarks and what it might mean to his chances to be vice president.

Look, if Dan Quayle can be vice president, so can Huckabee. If George W. Bush can be president, so can Huckabee. The bar hasn't merely been lowered; it's been submerged.

But if I were McCain, I'd think long and carefully about whether I wanted to share such a life-memorable occasion as my prom with this particular date.

Somebody else writing on the same subject said McCain just might decide the Huck lip is part of the package.
