Today on Quinn and Rose they brought up Mike Huckabee’s Billy Carter moment. There is a sound bit of Huck bragging about how in college they didn’t have much to do so they’d fry squirrels in a popcorn popper. Okay, I still can’t deal with his son, David hanging and gutting a dog at Scout camp – see here – but this is beyond sick. Ann Coulter talks a little about this in this weeks blog entry.
From Wonkette “How did we arrive at this point?”
And so it was that yesterday Mike Huckabee decided to let his redneck flag fly by announcing that he doesn’t only kill small animals for fun all the time unlike that poseur Romney, he eats them, too. Yes, in order to pander to the varmint-eaters vote, Huckabee bragged “I figured out you could put grease in a popcorn popper and heat that thing up, and you could cook anything,. So we fried squirrel.” OMG, people, is this what we’re coming to? Who is the biggest redneck Macgyver?
From LA Times:
In fact, Huckabee said, not only had he hunted varmints himself — in addition to deer, ducks, antelopes and, now, pheasants — but he also was an experienced varmint-eater, having downed his share of fried squirrel, biscuits and Coke as a college student.
“I figured out you could put grease in a popcorn popper and heat that thing up, and you could cook anything,” he said in an interview. “So we fried squirrel.”
