Dream Ticket!

mike huckabee sweats jeremiah wright

I hereby nominate Jeremiah Wright and Mike Huckabee for the presidential dream ticket of the Know Nothing party. They can run the country as co-vice-presidents. Wright recently said he was open to serving in that office; Huckabee has been posturing for the spot since January.

Here’s Huckabee last month, defending Wright’s comments as “out of context” and excusing him for being “caught up in the emotion of an extemporaneous sermon”:

Many times those were statements lifted out of the context of a larger sermon. Sermons, after all, are rarely written word for word by pastors like Rev. Wright, who are delivering them extemporaneously, and caught up in the emotion of the moment. There are things that sometimes get said, that if you put them on paper and looked at them in print, you’d say ‘Well, I didn’t mean to say it quite like that.'” [source: Politico]

I wonder what Pastor Huckabee thinks about Reverend Wrights recent rants while speaking before the NAACP, PBS, and the National Press Club.
