  • HAPPIER DAYS: All were smiling when the Huckabees rallied with Kim Davis and husband. That was before a lawsuit over his unuthorized use of a Survivor song at the event.
Of course. Mike Huckabee is being sued for playing the song "Eye of the Tiger" without permission at a rally he staged with anti-gay-marriage Kentucky clerk Kim Davis and HE is the victim.

ABC reports on the Huckawhine.

“The lawsuit makes it sound like I went and picked out music to say 'hey, play this song,' and obviously that didn’t happen," Huckabee said.

He said his campaign tried to settle the matter by offering an unspecified amount of money and an apology.He said he though the copyright owner was trying to make publicity at his expense.

"When the person made a complaint, there was an offer made to pay him and issue an apology," said the presidential candidate, who continues to struggle in the polls and was demoted to the undercard debate in Milwaukee. "We don’t want to run somebody’s music who hates my guts. I get that."
....
"Unfortunately, this person seems to be more interested in suing us for an amount of money more than the average American worker makes in a year and it just seems a very vindictive and almost unbelievable kind of thing to do," Huckabee told ABC News on Thursday at a campaign event in Centerville, Iowa.

PS: More incredibly stupid shit from Huckabee, this time on the deaths in Mali.

    The conversion of a national debate on race is an apt commentary for the 60th anniversary of the Little Rock school crisis and the city's effort to sell it as an occasion to laud progress. Progress would be someone talking about the elephant in the room — the white establishment's takeover of the majority black Little Rock School District.
