You're not THAT skinny
Gov. Huckabee got himself in a sticky situation late last week when he made a joke Jewish groups considered to be insensitive.
Jewish groups aren't laughing after Arkansas' governor quipped that he lost 100 pounds after staying "at a concentration camp."Governor Mike Huckabee was on the "Imus in the Morning" show, where the host told him he looked "emaciated."
That led Republican Huckabee to joke that he'd been held by Democrats for six weeks at a concentration camp. The National Jewish Democratic Council calls it "insensitive" and thinks the governor ought to apologize. But Huckabee claims he wasn't referring to the Holocaust. He also says it's "far-reaching" to think he was, and calls it the "type of allegation that makes people cynical."
The relevant reason for posting on this today? KWWL (Waterloo, Cedar Rapids, Dubuque) ran this story on their nightly news yesterday. You can see for yourself here.
Shouldn't those folks be focused on whether or not Bruce Braley is a communist this close to Election Day?
