Caution: Huckster humor at work

Posted By on Sun, Jun 20, 2010 at 4:54 PM

I think I mentioned a while back that Ariel Levy, a writer for the New Yorker, was in town working on a profile on former governor and Florida tax shelter Mike Huckabee, the rising media star. The piece is out. it's already landed a squib in the New York Post gossip column, quoting from the article:

"At times, he seems unable to resist the force of his own funniness. I joked with him once that I would write about his [fictitious] affair with Nancy Pelosi. He e-mailed back, 'The only thing worse than a torrid affair with sweet, sweet Nancy would be a torrid affair with Helen Thomas. If those were my only options, I'd probably be FOR same-sex marriage!' "

Yes, us Banana Republicans remember.

Sorry, the New Yorker piece isn't on-line yet.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
