“They sure did.”
“They wouldn’t dare!”
“They would and they did.”
“Your kidding me, right?”
“Nope they actually did it.”
“Well I’m a monkey’s uncle”
“I hope that doesn’t mean you believe in evolution.”
Yes, they did indeed do it. Those commie rapscallions at the Boston Globe went and took a photograph of Mike Huckabee’s $3 million Florida beachfront house. The temerity, the unbridled audacity, the colossal insensitivity. Well, what’s a MOG (that’s Man of God) supposed to do in the face of such an outrage? Mike had no choice but to cancel the scheduled interview he had with the Globe’s Matt Viser. Too bad, because Mike had ole Matt buttered up like a hushpuppy at the church picnic. But then they went and ruined it.
He has talked openly about his newfound wealth, but still appears to be sensitive about the image. Huckabee, through his publisher, initially agreed to a 30-minute interview for this article, but canceled once he learned that the Globe had taken a photograph of the construction on his new home in Florida. “The governor was very upset that the Globe sent a photographer to cover the construction of his FL home,” Allison McLean, associate director of publicity for his publisher, said in an e-mail. Approached after his sermons in Michigan, Huckabee explained that news coverage of the house concerned him because of security issues for his family. “That’s just not cool,” Huckabee said. “We’ve got crazy people that come to my house when my wife’s home alone. You wouldn’t like that. I don’t either.”
Mike’s really remarkable. He always has an excuse or explanation for the fixes he gets himself in. It’s about security (even though the story didn’t identify the location of the property, saying only that it was in Walton County, Florida). I would have gone with the 10th commandment, “Thou shalt not covet thy neighbors goods.” Isn’t this really a case of house-envy? Mike knows how to fight back. He’s a fraud and a phony, a liar and a dangerously unstable person, but he sure knows where to draw the line.
