I guess this is what passes for humor amongst the Guns & God wing of the Republican Party:
Ever wonder why there are so few Republican comedians? It’s because this is what passes for humor During a speech before the National Rifle Association convention Friday afternoon in Louisville, Kentucky, former Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee — who has endorsed presumptive GOP nominee John McCain — joked that an unexpected offstage noise was Democrat Barack Obama looking to avoid a gunman.
“That was Barack Obama, he just tripped off a chair, he’s getting ready to speak,” said the former Arkansas governor, to audience laughter. “Somebody aimed a gun at him and he dove for the floor.”
One thing you can say about Huckabee, he sure knows how to play to an audience.
Here’s the video:
Listen to the audience laugh. Somebody aimed a gun at our first African American presidential nominee… oh man that’s funny, isn’t it?
