Huckabee's Serbian Heritage

Funny story written by Rob Bruce

Wednesday, 21 November 2007

Arkansas USA -- Mike Huckabee is turning on the juice in the run up to the first primaries in January. Every one in his campaign is upbeat as Iowa is within reach. "If we can take Iowa, Romney's done," smiled a staffer who declined to give his name. The candidate is finding positive responses everywhere he stops

His most recent campaign stop was in Des Moines with Iowans of Serbian Descent where Huckabee was warmly received by a heavily partisan crowd. "I didn't realize he was Serbian, it was the name thing that threw me off. I'll totally vote for Mike."

Huckabee told the crowd that his paternal grandfather, Slobidan Huckabij was the first to emigrate to America shortly after World War II, but had his last name changed by immigration after it was deemed too hard to pronounce. The original name, Huckabij (pronounced Huck-A-Bitch) is much less English friendly than the current Huckabee.

One angry Serbian at the rally thought Huckabee should change his name back to the original. His wife, however, chided him, saying, "Come on, are you kidding me, in English it sounds like a swear, who would want that name?"

Mr. Huckabee was not available for comment.
