Huckabee laments 'F-bomb' use by women in New York

  • WWACD: Mike Huckabee named no names when he talked about salty language at Fox News. Somehow, though, Ann Coulter came to mind. You can be trashy without cussing.
Mike Huckabee is chumming up to the religious crowd in Iowa as he runs for president and that means more than gay-bashing, abortion talk and school prayer. It also includes women cussing in the workplace. Catch this Iowa pander from a Huckster interview on a radio show in Iowa:

Appearing last Friday on Mickelson in the Morning, an Iowa-based radio show, Huckabee recounted the culture shock he experienced when hearing profanity in the workplace while working for Fox News in New York City.

“In Iowa, you would not have people who would just throw the f-bomb and use gratuitous profanity in a professional setting,” Huckabee said. “In New York, not only do the men do it, but the women do it!”

He continued: “This would be considered totally inappropriate to say these things in front of a woman.” But “for a woman to say them in a professional setting,” Huckabee went on, “that’s just trashy!”

What you bet some of those Foxy ladies take birth control pills because they "can't control their libidos" — another infamous Hucksterism.

Another win for Huckabee, if it's true there's no such thing as bad publicity.

Wonkette works out on him.

Also Jezebel. Which dubs him Mike Don't Say Fuckabee.

UPDATE: Though Huckabee's interview referred to what he'd experienced in New York while traveling there to work at Fox News, he took steps after a hubbub followed to say he was NOT referring to Fox News women but other unspecified professional women he'd encountered in New York. Said Politico:

On Wednesday, Huckabee sought to clarify his remarks, stressing that they weren’t directed at his former Fox colleagues. “I never said anything derogatory about the people at Fox News,” he said, but he has encountered “overall coarseness” while on the East and West Coasts.

Lovely as the Fox News blondes are, I'm willing to bet some of them cuss once in a while. Even Megyn Kelly says so.
