Saturday night line: Mike Huckabee confronts big boobs — and more

Posted By on Sat, Dec 28, 2013 at 5:24 PM

Here's a place for comment. Since I was last here:

* MISSISSIPPI FUGITIVES NABBED IN BRINKLEY: Sounds like some bad guys crossed the big river.

Two Mississippi fugitives were taken into custody this afternoon (December 28th) by Arkansas State Troopers and a U.S. Marshal.

Cody A. Eggemeyer, 26, and Michael D. Manis, 33, were arrested without incident about 3:15 PM outside the Crown Inn at 306 North Main Street, Brinkley.

Both men are wanted in connection with a crime spree that began Christmas Day and continued into the next day involving crimes of kidnapping, home invasion, robbery and gunfire directed at police officers in Sardis and Batesville, Mississippi. The two are also suspected of an armed robbery in West Helena, Arkansas on December 26th.

The Arkansas State Police Criminal Investigation Division is continuing to work with Mississippi and federal authorities in an investigation involving both Eggemeyer and Manis.

* CAR HITS RUNNERS ON CHENAL PARKWAY IN EARLY AM: Police have distributed report of a paper carrier who accidentally hit a group of four runners on Chenal Parkway near Serian Circle shortly before 6:30 a.m. this morning. Injuries were not life-threatening. No citation filed at the time of this report. 

* 'FARMING' SUBSIDIES: DId you know you didn't necessarily have to farm to receive farm subsidy payments? It's a tangled story. It may come to an end. Washington Post reports. A lot of this money flows into the Arkansas Delta, as an accompanying map shows.

* RADIO HUCKSTER SIGNS OFF: Mike Huckabee talks to Politico about why he discontinued his radio show. I think you can read between the lines clearly enough — he didn't get the guarantee for big bucks he wanted for the time he was investing. Doesn't every wage slave sympathize? It's all about the Huck, as per. Most awkward moment?

Along with interviewing people as varied as Nelson and Mitt Romney, “The Mike Huckabee Show” also provided the former governor with what he called “the most awkward, uncomfortable conversation I think I’ve probably ever had.” His producer, who he noted “didn’t last very long with the show and maybe this was why,” had booked the guest and Huckabee found himself unprepared for the content.

“It was a woman who got fired because she said that her boss thought that her breasts were too big. And I’m not making this up,” Huckabee recalled. “So I’m sitting there having to interview this woman about her boss thought her breasts were too big. I’ve had conversations with a lot of people, public and private, but this is just not one I want to have on a national radio show. It was bizarre. It was absolutely the most awkward, uncomfortable conversation I think I’ve probably ever had.”
