Observations on the pathetic state of American politics

Gov. Huckabee–The Fantasies Continue

Mike Huckabee‘s march through the strange world of conservative talk radio continued in an interview with Michael Medved where the Bible-thumping ex-governor offered his profoundly inaccurate thoughts about single mothers. Commenting on actress Natalie Portman, Mr. Huckabee said:

“Most single moms are very poor, uneducated, can’t get a job, and if it weren’t for government assistance, their kids would be starving to death and never have health care.”

Once again, the fallen-away governor let’s his personal judgments obscure the facts. Only about one-quarter of single mothers live in poverty and receive any form of government assistance. Nearly 80% are employed. And single moms have the same educational levels as married mothers.

So the stupendously uninformed Mr. Huckabee is wrong, wrong and wrong.  Let us pray that this nut-case doesn’t become president.
