Huck Jokes Of Obama Shooting

Mike Huckabee May Have Just Lost A Shot At VP:


(CNN) – 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.”

Obama supports extending the assault weapons ban, limits on gun sales, and a national law against carrying concealed weapons, with exceptions for retired police and military personnel. John McCain – whose legislative record was awarded a C+ rating by the NRA in 2004, but has received a perfect score – will address the group later Friday afternoon. His speech will include remarks "on the issue of unconditional negotiation with state sponsors of terror" that aides tell CNN’s Dana Bash are a direct response to Obama’s comments earlier Friday.

I've had a long week too Huck but this is just stupid. I don't even get the joke that he was attempting to tell. He could have stopped with the first portion of his lame joke, which somehow got him a few chuckles, but he keep marching on. Making jokes about the first black man to make a serious run at the Presidency getting shot is never a good idea. Then again, Huckabee is full of bad ideas...

Update: Here is the video...
