Oh lord, Mike Huckabee’s really imploding right before our very eyes, isn’t he?
Crazy not-birther Mike Huckabee thinks Natalie Portman is corrupting America by having been “visibly pregnant” at the Oscars without being married. On Michael Medvedev’s radio show, Medvedev talked about how “sending that kind of message is problematic.” Huckabee agreed:
There aren’t really a lot of single moms out there who are making millions of dollars every year for being in a movie,” he said. “And I think it gives a distorted image. … Most single moms are very poor, uneducated, can’t get a job, and if it weren’t for government assistance, their kids would be starving to death and never have health care. And that’s the story that we’re not seeing, and it’s unfortunate that we glorify and glamorize the idea of out-of-wedlock children.
Uh. How messed up in the head do you have to be to be unable to embrace the position, “Natalie Portman Can Do Whatever The Hell She Wants”?
Gawker has the audio, so click the above clicky if you want to hear the completely useless discussion.
But what I really want to point out here is Angry Black Lady’s reaction to this:
So let me get this straight. The Huckster is concerned about the colored kids born out of wedlock, but at the same time wants to force all women to have babies should they become pregnant through rape, contraception failure, a mistake, or rampant sluttery, and then he has the temerity to lament the poor uneducated and unemployed status of the
zombie babymakerssingle moms while at the same time preaching abstinence only.
How has his head not exploded from cognitive dissonance?
Haha, that would require movement in Huckabee’s grey matter. He’s just pandering to mindless wingnuts, is all. I do agree, though, that Mike Huckabee may have picked the wrong Hollywood starlet to talk smack about. [NSFW, but amazing.]
