Big Boobs Do In Mike Huckabee Producer

large boobs

Yes, you read that headline right. Former Arkansas governor as well as former and possibly future Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee fired his radio show producer over a guest's rather buxom figure. Magic Mike has a problem with talking about the human body. Female breasts, specifically. That's quite an amazing self-indictment made by the Huckster considering he's also a former pastor -- the very person a member of his flock should be able to freely discuss anything with, especially personal issues. Where else would you go for advice if not the solace of your ecumenical leader?

The problem began when the cultural conservative, on his radio talk show, became uncomfortable when one of his show's guests claimed to be victim of a peculiar bit of discrimination. According to this Huckabee interview with POLITICO:

“It was a woman who got fired because she said that her boss thought that her breasts were too big. And I’m not making this up,” Huckabee told Politico. “So I’m sitting there having to interview this woman about her boss thought her breasts were too big.

I’ve had conversations with a lot of people, public and private, but this is just not one I want to have on a national radio show. It was bizarre. It was absolutely the most awkward, uncomfortable conversation I think I’ve probably ever had.”

“That’s one I've tried to forget; unfortunately I’m unable to,” he said of the interview, which he described as “the most awkward, uncomfortable conversation I think I’ve probably ever had.”

Well, as awkward as this may have been for host, it became even more problematic for the radio show's producer.

Huckabee said the guest was scheduled by a producer who “didn’t last very long with the show," suggesting that the interview may have played a part in his short stint.

So there you have it. Mike Huckabee has a thing for big boobs. He's so embarrassed by them and has even fired his show's producer over them.

Putting the outrageous Mike's actions on a back burner -- justifiable firing or not -- is this the kind of person we want handling the reins of the US government? A childish, right-wing nut-job Tea Party wackadoo who can't even discuss a legal matter without tittering ? (yes, that was intentional, I could of used snickering) If he can't discuss an actual discrimination suit, how's he going to govern over the rights of women's reproductive issues? This guy is truly considering running again for president. I can just see his campaign slogan this time around -- "Vote for Mike. A chicken in every pot and two boobs in every bra"

Oh, and this little news piece from today, New Year's Eve day, 2013 -- The Hill is reporting:

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R) leads the field of potential Republican presidential candidates in early-voting South Carolina, according to a new poll from Gravis Marketing.

Doesn't it make you wonder?

Leading Cause Of Murder In American? Gays -- Dean and McMillan

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

Sons of Liberty radio

EDITED TO CORRECT:

I’m not sure if I should laugh or cry hearing Sons of Liberty Radio, hosts Bradlee Dean and Jake McMillan from last week. Among their jaundiced claims are that gay people are responsible for half of all murders committed in large US cities, among other crimes.

Don’t take my word for it. Save your souls. Listen to this yourself so I’m not accused of misquoting:

Snarkatude, cynicism, sarcasm—they’re all part of my arsenal in handling things that seem so outrageous. I’m faced with great alarm when radio outlaws promote violence and retribution. I’m pretty calloused when it comes to right-wing stories and opinions. Anger is something that takes a little more motivation.

Well, I’ve got anger right now.

There’s way too much discrimination and distrust going on within all communities. To propagate such hatred with lies and fabrications is nothing new – for haters. But how is it we can give a forum to such zealots? The answer sadly is they have an audience. People who eat this crap up for lunch and poop it out to their friends and neighbors post-dinner.

The best way to show your displeasure with these hate-mongers is to find out who sponsors their shows – then avoid those products. Advertising money is how these programs succeed. So I visited the Right Wing Watch to see who sponsors them. And here’s the interesting part. There are no sponsors. None listed, that is. So they are deep-pocketed by alternative means.

That most likely is the 501-c at work -- maybe Mr. Issa should look into this.

AUTHOR'S NOTE: Thanks to @Pattibbs for the correction on this post. DG

Cumulus Radio planning to drop Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity

I'm not breaking out the champagne until the deal is done, but I'm guessing there's not as much money in Hate Radio as there used to be.

In a major shakeup for the radio industry, Cumulus Media, the second-biggest broadcaster in the country, is planning to drop both Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity from its stations at the end of the year, an industry source told POLITICO on Sunday.

Cumulus has decided that it will not renew its contracts with either host, the source said, a move that would remove the two most highly rated conservative talk personalities from more than 40 Cumulus channels in major markets.

The decision comes after negotiations between Cumulus and Premiere Networks, the division of Clear Channel that distributes Limbaugh and Hannity's shows, broke down due to disagreements over the cost of the distribution rights, the source said. Cumulus is known to drive a hard bargain on costs, and Clear Channel is known to seek top dollar for big names.

(snip)

Back in May, a source close to Limbaugh told POLITICO that the host was considering ending his affiliation agreement with Cumulus because CEO Lew Dickey was blaming the company's advertising losses on Limbaugh's controversial remarks about Sandra Fluke, the Georgetown law student. On an earnings call two days later, Dickey reported a $2.4 million first-quarter decline in revenue related to talk programming, which he attributed, indirectly, to Limbaugh's remarks about Fluke.

Unfortunately I think people are paying more attention to what Ted says these days, so it might be interesting to see what happens next time he shows up in my area to "perform". Interesting indeed. Via.
