Mike Huckabee, Not Ready for Prime Time (Maybe the Writers Are on Strike?)


A Team Huck official assures me “the intent of the Governor’s remarks this morning was to convey ‘sympathy’ not apologies.”

They are sending around this clarification: “Gov. Huckabee while speaking at a campaign event earlier this morning in Florida intended to extend his deepest sympathies to the people of Pakistan when he used the word ‘apologies.’  He is outraged and saddened by the attack and the loss of a world leader whose life he believes was a profile in courage.”

We all make word-choice mistakes, but when you’re running for president and already have a rep for having a foreign-policy handicap … this doesn’t help.
