Huckabee Proves He Is A Regular Guy And Shoots A Bird

Mike Huckabee used the day after Christmas to go hunting instead of campaigning, proving he is just one of the guys. “Maybe it will show that I certainly understand the culture of being outdoors,” he said of the hunting trip. “It’s not something we had to go out and get a primer in. It’s very much ordinary to me.” This is in contrast to Mitt Romney’s claim earlier this year, where he said he hunted “small varmints” occasionally. Huckabee’s group brought back three pheasants, one of which Huckabee claimed he bagged personally. He insisted the birds would be eaten. “Don’t get in my way,” Huckabee told reporters while pointing to the three dead birds. “This is what happens…You vote for me, you live. You don’t…there you go.” I think Huck has been hanging out with Chuck to much here. Huckabee used this opportunity to reinforce his heartland roots by saying, “people in Middle America feel like folks will come and campaign in Iowa, and then they get elected and they forget that people out here in flyover land still exist. Some of us grew up in the middle of the country and still live here.”
