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.
