Mike Huckabee: The Thoughtful Homophobe

I have a feeling we're going to be listening a lot to Huckabee in four years. I'm not familiar with Jon Stewart's show but I thought he handled Uncle Mike just fine. Thanks to jfc, my favorite blogless blogger (and friend), for the heads-up on this video.

  1. I love Jon Stewart, but missed this one. Unfortunately, at present my computer won't let me watch or hear any videos. But the show is often repeated on TV, so maybe I can catch it one of these nights.

  3. It was with tongue-in-cheek that I proclaimed Mike Huckabee "the thoughtful homophobe", lest there be any confusion. ;-)

  4. I missed this one - so thank you.

    I like Jon Stewart; somehow he usually manages to handle guys like Huckabee with grace while simultaneously making his point.

  5. Glad ya liked it, Pagan! But...

    I'm not familiar with Jon Stewart's show

    Trying to wrap my brain around this one. A good progressive like you, NOT watching The Daily Show 4 nights a week? :-0

    [My then-81 year-old mother, before she died last year, watched him faithfully. She did confess to me, however, "For the longest time, I thought his name was Jon Stewart Daily!" *LOL*]

  6. Jon Stewart really did handle the interview with style and grace while getting through some very good points about the history of marriage. It's a term that's had some very bad connotations for women for most of history and does need to be redefined. I hope Mike Huckabee took some note of what was said.

  7. jcf: I'm not much of a TV watcher but it looks like I DO need to start watching the Jon Stewart show. I'll have to look up times and channels. Thanks, my friend.

    I'm sorry about your mom. My dad passed away three years ago and I still miss him very much. Probably always will. Keep in touch.

  8. PS, thanks, I hadn't seen that.

    The Daily Show is easily found on the web, with many segments viewable at your convenience.

    And Stewart showed much more control than I'd have been able to muster. During the video I kept muttering, "Tell him it's bigotry, tell him it's the Tyranny of the Masses..."

  9. Don't laugh...I saw this clip on 'The O'Reilly Factor' on Fox last night (my cold was getting me down and keeping me up). Bill O'Reilly had a very different view from Jon Stewart!

  10. SB: I can imagine that! Bill-o The Clown; what a revolting wingding he is.

  12. Jon Stewart is a riot! You can see most of his best clips on You Tube. Lets hope Huckabee goes away.

  13. Oh man, I know I am coming to this WAY late [sorry!], but the fact that freakin' Jon Stewart hit Huckabee with more challenging questions than Rachel Maddow did is ridiculous. She needs to step up her game big time. And naw, I'm not interested in the excuses everyone created for her about why she didn't grill him. Least of all her own, which was the most pathetic ["I wasn't interested"???]

    Jon Stewart was great, though. He totally knows how to work his guests, and it's pretty funny to watch.
