B. S. alert

Posted By on Sun, Oct 12, 2008 at 7:42 AM

Give Mike Huckabee a chance and his mouth will overload his you-know-what.

Rachel Sklar of The Huffington Post watched the latest installment of his show, complete with Chuck Norris, so you didn't have to.

Among a string of tall tales, Huckabee floated the nutty -- and irresponsible -- notion that an "economic terrorist" has been at work to cause the world market collapse. In whose interest? He didn't say. That unified conspiracy theory hasn't been perfected yet. Stay tuned for next week's show.

Sklar said:

I was struck by the carelessness with which Huckabee allowed misrepresentations, untruths and completely unsupported speculation to be broadcast unchecked during his show. As both a former presidential candidate and the host of an hour-long prime-time show, I would have expected more rigorous attention to facts and accuracy.

Not if she had lived in Arkansas.

ALSO: Gawker makes fun of Huck and Chuck.
