'Cause assassination jokes are so funny

Former US presidential candidate Mike Huckabee was speaking to the NRA on Friday when some banging noises were heard from backstage.

Huckabee - thinking fast on his feet - decided this was the moment to try out his improvisational wit. Interrupting his speech, he quipped:
"That was Barack Obama, just tripped off a chair, he was getting ready to speak, someone aimed a gun at him and he drove for the floor."
Err, political assassination jokes are hilarious, really.


  1. He's a riot at parties, I hear. "Hi, I'm Mike Huckabee. I used to be the next candidate for Leader of the Republican Party...!"

  2. I like huntin' too!

    What a fuckknuckle.

    And he is meant to be on the short-list for VP - that's the real joke!

  4. Just another reason why I didn't think Huckabee was presidential material during the primaries. He hasn't made me one bit sorry so far.

  5. Is he really a contender for VP Cube, as Dylan says?

    Or was ... perhaps no longer?

    I only saw something about it on Hot Air a couple of days ago. Coule be an isolated report/idle speculation. Link

  7. Huckabooboo has been named as a VP choice, but so far no decision has been announced. I don't think this idiotic remark will help his chances.
