Mike Huckabee, concerned over health care, has revealed how he will restructure Medicare. It seems that all seniors really need is a good poop. From ABC News:
On MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” Friday, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee was asked about the fact that former Tennessee Sen. Fred Thompson repeatedly attacked him at Thursday night’s debate.
“I think Fred needs some Metamucil, I think it would help a lot,” Huckabee joked. “He was in a bad mood last night.”
At an event Friday night at the Sticky Fingers Rib House in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, Thompson called the comments “eighth-grade kind of potty humor kind of stuff,” reports ABC News’ Christine Byun, traveling on that Fred-riffic campaign.
Then Thompson stuck out his hand and said, “pull my finger.” (No reports on whether the finger was sticky or not.)
Huckabee defended his remark, saying that he was thinking vertically, and, if more senior citizens would poop vertically, it would reduce health costs. Opponents pointed out that there are water shortages all over this country, and if more seniors were pooping more often and, therefore, flushing more, the shortages would get worse. Environmentalists have noted that ingesting Metamucil can result in gassiness, and more farts will result in even more global warming.
As for Grampa Fred, he might have said that he was angry, but have you seen his new campaign poster?
