    Huckabee is even more of a nut than most people thought based on these comments

    OMG. If Obama doesn't win and the Democrats don't take another 20 house seats, just pack it up.

    The AP version doesn't mention laughter at his idiotic remark.

    LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Republican Mike Huckabee responded to an offstage noise during his speech to the National Rifle Association by suggesting it was Barack Obama diving to the floor because someone had aimed a gun at him.

    Hearing a loud noise and interrupting his speech, Huckabee said: “That was Barack Obama. He just tripped off a chair. He’s getting ready to speak and somebody aimed a gun at him and he — he dove for the floor.”

    There were only a few murmurs in the crowd after the remark.

    The Obama campaign had no comment.

    Huckabee, who sought the GOP presidential nomination, won the leadoff Iowa caucuses and seven other states. But he dropped out after Sen. John McCain, the likely nominee, piled up a series of big victories. An ordained Baptist minister, Huckabee attracted strong support among religious conservatives.

    He and former GOP candidate Mitt Romney addressed the NRA convention Friday as did McCain.

    "Who told Huck about the plan?"

    "It wasn't me."

    "I bet it was Whitey."

    It sure didn't sound like laughter to me

    Sounded more like an embarrassed titter.

    Boy, what a nincompoop.

    As somebody stumping for a VP gig or Cabinet appointment, Huckabee just shot himself in the foot.

    Nothing says "responsible gun ownership" than a joke about pointing a gun at a candidate. Wow.

    Quality and ad-lib just doesn't mix there, does it?

    I hope Huckabee gets an extra-thorough body cavity search from the SS.
