In an interview on conservative talk radio yesterday, Mike Huckabee, potential candidate for the presidency, leaned in close to the microphone and said in a hushed tone, "I have it on good authority that Barack Obama's mother was an anthropologist!"
Huckabee: "Yes! It's hard to believe but it's true!"
Host: Are you sure?"
Huckabee: "And you know what they believe, don't you?"
Huckabee: "That we all came from monkeys! They sit around all day in a dark room and look at pictures of apes and baboons that look like men! Not a pretty picture, is it?"
Huckabee leaned in closer to the host as if it was just the two of them that were privy to the conversation and whispered, "His mother came from Kansas!"
Huckabee: "Do you know what that means?"
Huckabee: "The Wizard of Oz.! The flying monkeys! The wicked witch! Got it?"
Host: "Yes, I guess."
Huckabee: "It all ties together. The fact is that the president of the United States, of our beloved country, is probably an anthropologist too!"
Host: "Oh my God!"
Huckabaee: "The apple doesn't fall far from the tree, you know. I think we know what apple we are talking about here."
Host: "Yes Mike, I pray to God, and to our Lord and savior that this is not true!"
Huckabee: "Ever vigilant, Glenn." He paused and said in a whisper, almost inaudible-----"ever vigilant, my friend."
