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.

    A rediscovered violin concerto brings an oft-forgotten composer into the limelight.
  • Donald Trump is historically unpopular — and not necessarily where you think

    My colleagues John Ray and Jesse Bacon and I estimate, in the first analysis of its kind for the 2018 election season, that the president's waning popularity isn't limited to coastal cities and states. The erosion of his electoral coalition has spread to The Natural State, extending far beyond the college towns and urban centers that voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016. From El Dorado to Sherwood, Fayetteville to Hot Springs, the president's approval rating is waning.
  • Arkansans join House vote to gut Americans with Disabilities Act

    Despite fierce protests from disabled people, the U.S. House voted today, mostly on party lines, to make it harder to sue businesses for violating the Americans with Disabilities Act. Of course Arkansas congressmen were on the wrong side.
