Mike Huckabee: Look Over There at That Activist Reporter Who Made Me Compare Gays to Drug Addicts!

Oh we are sorry we missed this entry into the Mike Huckabee Is A Closeted Bigot Tour! The former Arkansas governor showed up on Sean Hannity’s television program on Friday night to get in the last word against the huckster Rosie O’Donnell, who caught him in one lie after another. Needless to say, Mr. Hannity did not bother fact checking Huckabee’s statements, like the one he continues repeating the line about how he doesn’t want gay adoption to be a big issue. Or about how that mean college reporter made Huckabee say those mean things!

Huckabee’s defense against his terrible remarks, like where he compared gays to drug users as among “behaviors” this country shouldn’t tolerate? That Michael Tracey, editor of the College Of New Jersey’s newspaper The Perspective, and the guy who interviewed him, was once arrested at an Ann Coulter speech. See, he’s a radical activist! And he’s only focused on getting himself attention!

All of which, of course, ignores the fact that after Tracey released the full audio tape of his interview with Huckabee, and everything that was reported about Huckabee’s views on gays is not only true, but actually far worse.
