Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee says he was surprised by John McCain’s pick of Sarah Palin because he believes the only difference between himself and the Alaska governor is “she looks better in stilettos than I do.”
Reflecting on the Palin pick in an interview with the New Yorker posted Monday, Huckabee told the magazine that “I was scratching my head, saying, ‘Hey, wait a minute. She’s wonderful, but the only difference was she looks better in stilettos than I do, and she has better hair.’”
Well, kids, we now know the direction the Rethuglican party is going to take. Chuckleberry feels like he is going to have to compete with Princess Sarah next time around, and I suspect the others will follow suit (that is, if the Rethuglican party gives them shopping sprees, too!)….
I wonder if Chuckleberry will go with the beehive, the half-ponytail with the flip, or just let his hair down.
Huckabee insisted that Palin “was given a pass by some of the very people who said I wasn’t prepared.”
“It wasn’t so much a gender issue, but it was like they suddenly decided that everything they disliked about me was O.K,” he said.
The Republican seemed surprised that his name did not come up more during the vice presidential search [...]
The former governor said Palin was able to “leapfrog” the entire Republican primary field and secure her place in the spotlight as McCain’s vice presidential pick without having to get “bloodied” by a GOP primary.
“By naming her he was able to put her in a position where she didn’t have to go through the bruising process of the primaries. Many of us had been out there for 15 months,” he added. “She walks into the hot spotlight and she’s a blank slate nobody knows so Republicans are fired up.”
Oooh, Chuckleberry is making good use of those newly polished fingernails!
