Liberals are so helpful with suggestions for cheap airfare

Mike Huckabee is sneering at those Hollywood liberals at the Oscars.

Rather than slapping back, look at this…Betty Bowers gives him ideas for inexpensive flights to Europe.

I think I like her.

    I doubt there is enough water in the solar system to flush the shit out of Huckabee.

    I like it — but it is a repurposed Hitchens quote: “If you gave Falwell an enema he could be buried in a matchbox.”

  3. Ichthyic says

    Why must some people make not watching the Oscars a political thing?

    It’s the constant drumbeat of dehumanization and tribalism that is necessary in order to maintain a stranglehold on the right wing authoritarian personalities.


    that’s the entire reason for it.

  4. Ichthyic says

    ok, that’s the entire reason people like Huckleberry say the things about it they do, anyway.

    *looks at PZ’s political complaints*


  5. chigau (ever-elliptical) says

    *Give enima, bury in shoe box* pre-dates Hitchens’s use by quite a few years.

    Don’t dump on Huckabee. After all, he is a fine Christian and a Baptist ordained minister and likes to tell us of this situation. He even likes to provide advice to the rest of us. Sorta like roughly 100% of the so-called-but-oxymoronic “religious right” ever since Reagan.

    Right wing intellectual.
    Jumbo shrimp.
    Military intelligence.
    Religious right.
    And lately, “well-informed and sane and never racist Drumpfheteer.”

    Celebrities are spewing ignorant political venom? Dear god! Don’t they know that that’s the job of right wing politicians?!

  8. chrislawson says

    chigau@7: Until this tweet I’ve only ever seen it as a Hitchens quote. Now that I’ve looked into it, it certainly seems to predate Hitchens by a good few decades (and was generally directed at Texans).

    I liked Will Wheaton’s (I think?) reply best. It was basically : “You’ll have to remove your head from your rectum first”
