Meghan McCain's unfounded attack on Mike Huckabee

Mike Huckabee was a guest on Redeye with Greg Gutfeld. Gutfeld asked Mike Huckabee his thoughts on Meghan McCain's attack of Michele Bachmann. Being the gentleman that he is, Mike Huckabee defends Michele Bachmann while not commenting on McCain.

Meghan McCain tweeted this : McCainBlogette Meghan McCain
Governor Huckabee you are a former candidate for President and now you spend your time criticizing me on a show that airs on fox at 2am.

To which Greg Gutfeld replied: greggutfeld GregGutfeld
.@McCainBlogette actually huck didn't criticize u. he was far more gracious than u have been to Bachman, Palin, Malkin, etc. #redye

As we listen to the tape, we can clearly see that Mike Huckabee defends Michele Bachmann while not discussing Meghan McCain. It is the other guests who talk about McCain, not Mike Huckabee.

We can see from a past question on Meghan McCain that it is not in Mike Huckabee's nature to criticize her. Here we have another instance where Mike Huckabee defends the conservative principles of the Republican party without going after Meghan McCain.

We know from history that Meghan McCain is not a fan of Mike Huckabee because she finds him too socially conservative for her tastes. I am sure we will see more comments from her regarding Mike Huckabee when he announces that he is running for POTUS. Hopefully next time she will have her facts straight.

First, I am reminded why I never watch talk TV and talk radio.

Second, it appears that Redeye is a very weak attempt by conservatives to regain the comedy satire of politics that the Daily Show and Colbert now dominate. In the past, when you thought about political satire you though Rush Limbaugh. Now you think Jon Stewart.

Third, Huckabee did criticize McCain without mentioning her name. But again, I really don't care.

Fourth, I agree with McCain all though I wouldn't call her the poor man's Sarah Palin. I think of Bachmann as half-way articulate Sarah Palin.

Who cares what Meghan McCain does or says?

Unless of course she's praising Mitt Romney!

Nobody cares what she thinks. John must be proud. I'm surprised this warranted a post.

ConMan said...

All she's doing is keeping her name in the media. By doing so, she may sell a few more of her books.
This post is a prime example. I'm sure Meghan appreciates it.

She needs a T-shirt that says, "My father was shot down over Viet Nam and I get to be Paris Hilton."

I do not like Meghan McCain or John McCain, for that matter. However, maybe Meghan doesn't like Huckabee for the same reason others of us don't like him. He is very thin-skinned and can be malicious. Being a (former) Baptist preacher attracts some people and repels others. It may not have much to do with being a social conservative, and it may have everything to do with Mike himself.

I agree with you AZ. I think someone is projecting their own ideas as to why Megan is not thrilled with Huckabee. I'm not even a little bit happy with everything about Meghan McCain, but I like her as a person more than I like Huck!

My opinion of Mr. Huckabee just went up. I am glad he is standing up to jokers like young Miss. McCain instead of kissing the butt of Mrs. Obama.

Just yet another "Adult" child of a failed candidate who is grifting off the last name.

Anon 9:45. Perhaps her tee shirt should say:
"Hanoi Hilton to Paris Hilton in just one Generation"

Both Meghan McCain and Bristol Palin should wear tee shirts saying "I am riding on my parent's coat tails" or "I am just a grifter." At least Huck could finish his term as Governor and he doesn't have the Palins' potty mouths. Sarah Palin would stand begging on a street corner with a cup if she thought she would get much money.

PDS much?

It’s just not right to compare Meghan and Bristol. Bristol is shy and talks about her experiences. Meghan talks about politics and the world she knows little about. And I don’t remember Bristol bad mouthing anybody ever.
