Huckabee Makes Palin Coke-Snorting Joke
<Mike Huckabee is living proof that just because you're an ordained Southern Baptist minister, it doesn't mean you can't crack a joke about snorting cocaine. The former Arkansas governor appeared on Fox News' Red Eye to talk about Sarah Palin's views on marijuana use. He wrapped up the segment with a smoothly delivered punch line:

After Sarah Palin made these comments she then produced a gram of coke from her purse and did line after line on the glass table.

The moment those words left his lips, Huckabee knew he would hear of them again from the blogosphere.

This is gonna be on YouTube. I can feel it coming on. >

3. What is wrong with the world? Sarah Palin expressing a lefty opinion...
...a great majoritory of us agree with? I know even a stopped clock is right twice a day, but this is beyond precedent?

I'm also sure that her prioritories for what to do with all that freed police time, and space in jails will differ radically from ours.

Recent studies have shown that (in a simulator environment at least) the only significant measurable effect pot smoking has on driving ability is a very strong tendency to reduce speeds. By about 20% IIRC. My experience (personal and observational) is that pot significantly inhibits the riskest types of behaviour associated with alcohol and/or late adolesence/early adulthood.

4. I see nothing wrong with what she said.
From a comedy standpoint, I'm just tired of seeing politicians butcher jokes.

6. Absolutely true. I've encouraged my (now adult) children to choose pot over booze.

8. A lefty opinion?
A lefty opinion would be supporting legalization. Not "it should be illegal but you should still be allowed to do it."

11. Nothing wrong with legalizing pot, but...
given the fact that the statement only further highlights failin's plunge into the depths of libertarianism.

You know the definition of a libertarian, right?

a pot smoking repuke.

Cheers!

2. Anyone really think that is a real news story?
I wonder if they got some drug usage information from some of the patriot act spying done on people?

I probably shouldn't judge things as worse or better, and this comment is not about Palin, but I think on things like people doing drugs, having done drugs in my life.

And although there is a bad part of where that money goes, and I do not think drug use is the best choice for people in life. I often think what is worse in life.

People kicked out of their homes, deception and PR on TV, wars for profit, economic control over groups of people for profit for a few,

or someone doing drugs, that mostly hurts themselves.

It seems so common a thing to grab something that has a social negative impact and make that a story, and then to avoid other topics being done every day that do not help society.


Then there is also the issue of over prescription of things like Ritalin to children, and Prozac to anyone that begins to think on issues that can cause some emotional strife. Yet some how people don't talk about that as a drug issue.

7. Wasilla is best known for its meth heads.
She acts kind of like a tweaker. Paranoid. Talks goofy. Weird, out of touch from reality look in her face. In explicable weight loss.

But Huckabee's probably right. She's too educated to do meth. Coke is more like the woman who went to 6 different colleges to barely get a degree in communications, or some such.

9. Heh. That went over like a lead balloon in Freeperville.
Hopefully, that sank what little chance he had of future office-holding.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

words cant describe the disdain that I have for Mike Huckabee.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Huckabee is such a dip-wad.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Cheap shot. At least hell have his music....but not higher office.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I've seen him do this kind of crap before, he's trying to sow doubts about her "drug use" and then quietly walk away saying there's nothing to see here, he would never imply such a thing.
He's such a phony.

Huckaphony.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

youve got no class Huckabee... no class!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Huckleberry Hound at his worst.

What a pathetic basket case.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Huckabee disgusts me.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Huckabee is a real jerk and it was clear from the 2008 primaries.

He has no class at all.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Lol. He's gonna ratchet it up and claim she's a coke snorting sleep around type that secretly wears her cross upside down...........
But he never said that.

:-)

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I cant stand huckster. The social cons force huckster down pur throat and many of us are gone.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hes an idiot....I absolutely cannot stand him and the only way I would ever vote for him is if he by some remote chance ended up being our nominee in Nov 2012! Hopefully that will NEVER happen!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I sure hope so, and will possible end his show on FOX.
"""""because you're an ordained Southern Baptist minister, it doesn't mean you can't crack a joke about snorting cocaine.""""""

Because he is an ordained Baptist minister, HE SHOULDN'T BE MAKING SUCH REMARKS, EVER. HE IS SPREADING GOSSIP, AND THAT IS HIS SIN, NOW. He knows better than that, and yes he can apoligize, but that does not stop what is really in his heart.

And that is jealousy, he is jealous of her success, he covets her success and now he has added another sin. Just unbelievable for a minister to make such remarks about anyone.
