Breaking News: Mike Huckabee a piece of shit!

huckabee_fat.jpgDang! Was Mike Huckabee fat or what? I read Plutarch’s blog post on the lack of interest by the media in how Huckabee shed a full size human worth of weight. I obviously lack Plutarch’s sophistication but will nonetheless contribute to his call for investigation. Plutarch suggests the main stream media has shelved curiosity about Huckabee’s weight loss until he becomes more relevant…say as the Republican nominee for President. Yet, if he has profited (i.e. book deal) from a gastric bypass while claiming it was all diet and exercise, his fitness for the Presidency is pretty thin.

Certainly, it’s understandable that weight-loss is a sensitive issue for some. Star Jones took 3 years to fess up to gastric bypass helping her to lose 160 lbs., and if my memory serves me correctly, she passed off the “miracle of diet and exercise” for some time. Star Jones didn’t want to run the country though. Huckabee does. There’s a different standard.

My own interest in not seeing Mike Huckabee as the nominee has to do with NOT wanting four more years of same old, same old. I don’t want my taxdollars paying for Christian crazies like the Blackwater mercenaries for Jesus, faith-based charlatans, abstinence-only education that doesn’t work, non-science scientists, lumber guys heading the Department of Forestry, polluters at the EPA, etc., etc.

So, I’m with Plutarch on this. Voters need to know if Huckabee has told a big, fat fib. Reporters need to ask.

  2. I don’t get why people are so ashamed to admit they had GB. I have been (and am) losing weight the old-fashioned way, through exercise and healthy eating, but had I been as big as Huckabee I might have had the surgery. And if I had, I darn sure wouldn’t have acted ashamed of it or lied about it. Cosmetic surgeries are nothing to be ashamed of (unless you are Michael Jackson) and they aren’t worth lying about.

    BTW I am an evangelical Christian who won’t be voting for Huckabee. 😉

  3. Dieting doesn’t work. And neither does GB, at least not in a way you want it to (starvation much?). I wouldn’t be proud of either.

  4. He’s a hypocrite for sure. Demanding all HIV+ people be sequestered from the general public; yet his own weight loss is a result of dubious health.

  5. Once Hucklebee lost his weight, he helped legislate a program in Arkansas public schools where kids were weighed, and obesity report cards were sent to parents. It was humiliating for a lot of my kids’ classmates. I sent a note to the school basically saying, “Don’t weigh my kids.” I figured we could handle that one without Mike if it ever got to be an issue.

  6. I just signed a note denying my kid’s participation in the No Child Left Behind illicit drug survey. He’s reading Peter Pan for godsake.

  7. Diet and exercise does work. I’ve lost 70 lbs in 6 months using body for life. That said, I can’t say what Hickabee used to lose his weight, I’m just saying it’s possible.

  8. i am going to have the GB this month and i am not ashamed of it at all, anything is better the begin FAT. If you are fat and been homebond or depressed or hate urself then u know how it feels, so dont talk about what u dont know…i would never belittle an Aids victum or some one who has another ifliction, nor should you.

  9. dave, I accept your rebuke. This was more about whether or not, Huckabee was forthright. I wouldn’t make fun of an AIDS patient either….unless he had some prejudice like hating AIDS patients and was a public figure.

    Good luck with the surgery, man.

  10. Well, what a silly article. Based on pure cynical speculation, you only ASSUME that he had surgery, with no proof whatsoever. Based on blogosphere gossip, you essentially call him a hypocrite and a liar, based on nothing but a preconceived bias against the man. Wow! Yet, you call that journalism? That is sheer slander, dude. Nothing more. What a waste. As Jerry Maguire said…”We live in a cynical, cynical world.” You are certainly part of that world. Thanks for spreading the cancer of cynicism.
