Open Letter to Mike Huckabee


Dear Mike Huckabee,

You need to stop talking.

In a recent radio interview, you accused Natalie Portman of glamorizing single motherhood. Never mind that Natalie Portman is engaged to her baby’s daddy, so she’s not really a single mom. Minor detail, right?

There aren’t really a lot of single moms out there who are making millions of dollars every year for being in a movie,” he said. “And I think it gives a distorted image. … 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. And that’s the story that we’re not seeing, and it’s unfortunate that we glorify and glamorize the idea of out-of-wedlock children.

MOST?! Really? Most of the single moms I know are just fine. They have jobs. They are not on government assistance. Their kids are not starving death, and they have health care. The above statement is the most ignorant crap I’ve read all week and I read a story about the Westboro Church earlier this week. Are you going full retard in a bid for the presidency? I know it worked from George W.

Also, by the way, I have to ask, do you have an opinion on Bristol Palin? Just wondering.

You know the political party that you belong to just passed a bill cutting funding to Planned Parenthood, which provides birth control to prevent single moms. They proposed to cut funding to assistance programs to help poor families. But hey, I’m sure you’re right. This is Hollywood’s fault.

One more thing, if kids are starving to death it’s because you are eating all the food. Stop lying all the time and hit a gym, Huckabee, you are getting fat again.
