Bad Shot

The dangers of being a quick witted politician were revealed Friday when Mike Huckabee was speaking to the NRA. Sometimes, in the search for a punch line, a guy can shoot himself in the foot, which the former Arkansas governor did while trying to have a laugh at the expense of Barack:

How long do you think it will take for race obsessed liberals, in their lust for a return to their coming of age decade of the 1960's, to start kvetching over how this bad taste humor is something much more ominous than a "botched joke?" It didn't take Huckabee long to figure it out:

Republican Mike Huckabee responded to an offstage noise during his speech to the National Rifle Association by suggesting it was Barack Obama diving to the floor because someone had aimed a gun at him.

Late Friday, Huckabee apologized: "I made an offhand remark that was in no way intended to offend or disparage Senator Obama."

Meanwhile, John McCain, who hasn't always followed the NRA party line, made it clear to his pro-gun audience that he's their best protection against Hillary or Barack:
"If either Senator Clinton or Senator Obama is elected president, the rights of law-abiding gun owners will be at risk, my friends, and have no doubt about it," he said at an NRA convention in Louisville, Ky.
McCain isn't expected to get a nomination out of the group according to some insiders.
