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.
