It’s a damn shame that Mike Huckabee has that whole religious nutjob thing going for him, because he seems to have a pretty good sense of humor. Examples…

Too bad he’s batshit crazy.

It reminds me of Bob Dole after losing the election in 1996. One of his first post-election interviews was on the David Letterman show. Dave asked him what he’d been up to recently, and Bob replied with “Not enough, apparently.”

I really wish we saw more of this kind of thing in politics. I’m not saying politics should be a big joke (well, ok…it already is). I just wish there was more room for politicians to lighten up and be themselves. Especially after the last 8 years (you know, where every pre-written speech sounds exactly the same as the last one, with the same pauses, inflection, and generally lacking anything even remotely interesting).
