Are you one of the many Americans who can't get enough of Mike Huckabee's weekly Fox News show on... whatever day it's on? Because he's trying out a new show that will air six days a week! It's all happening.
Huckabee, the former Arkansas governor who made his name by being fat and then losing lots of weight and writing a book about how he was not fat anymore, is one of the very top contenders for President of the United States in 2012. He's a good conversationalist and he plays bass! He's also a devoted member of the Fair Tax cult, thinks that "gay" is a term for humans who bone farm animals, doesn't really know what the world's other countries are, is hated by the economics-minded wings of both parties, and has a vicious temper and loud mouth that physically cannot be shut. But he talks like you 'n' me, see? And he plays bass!
So will he forgo a run for the presidency to keep this newest daytime Fox News soap opera? First he's got to try out:
Former Republican presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee — who already hosts a weekly Fox News show — is getting a six-week tryout for a daily gig.
"The Huckabee Show" will start July 26 at noon. According to his political action committee's website, the program—which will be taped in New York on certain Fox syndicates— will tackle the "tough political issues of the day".
"His common-sense conservative message resonates with Americans, and now, new audiences and new fans will begin to realize what makes Gov. Huckabee so popular," said the committee's executive director, Hogan Gidley.
God, please do resonate, Mike Huckabee. Resonate your ass off every day for these six weeks. Then you won't have to run for president!
