During an interview with Colbert on the Colbert Report, Huckabee restated his desire to have Colbert as his VP. [Smile]

Colbert's many trips to resorts in Jamaica and the Bahamas will bring the ticket the international experience that Huckabee lacks. [Smile]

I bet this will just make Chuck Norris burst into tears.

But since they cure cancer, I guess that is Huckabees health care strategy?

That interview was hilarious. Huckabee is charming, there's no doubting that, even if he does look a little clueless sometimes when it comes to foreign policy.

Huckabee/Colbert. If it were the other way around I'd consider voting for them.

But let's be serious for a minute... Jesse Ventura is a statesman.

It suddenly strikes me as funny that Susan Sarandon was in Hillary's entourage. Maybe she gave her a few acting tips.

So cynical.

And overconfident in Sarandon's acting ability. [Wink]

Another fantasy matchup is Paul and Ventura.

P.S. According to Wikipedia, Ventura moved to Mexico in 2005, but:
quote:
In January of 2008, the Associated Press reported that a new book authored by Ventura, titled Don't Start the Revolution Without Me is scheduled for release in April. In it, according to the report, Ventura suggests that he is a potential presidential candidate for 2008.[30]

The interview was great. I was very surprised Huckabee wasn't stumbling over his feet with Colbertís mocking banter as many interviewees do. He also used some sarcastic humor to go along with Colbert that was brilliant. I'm not a big Huckabee fan right now but that was defiantly an entertaining interview.

Colbert is coming to the University at Buffalo soon. Can't wait to see him in person!

I just found that interview annoying and embarrassing for Huckabee.

He avoided every question asked to him by turning it into some joke that I recall I did not find that funny, possibly because I was annoyed that he was attempting to use humor to avoid the questions. (not that humor doesn't have its place especially on colbert, but he didn't answer ANYthing)

He did take a pretty firm stand on gay marriage when Stephen made the altar joke.

See? There you go. Stephen got him to present his perhaps most controversial stances right up front (not controversial to his base perhaps, but certainly to the swing voters that will decide 2008's election). Well they didn't touch on the FairTax, but other than that!
