[su_right_ad]Likely presidential candidate Mike Huckabee admits that, as a young Baptist, he wrote a column denouncing dancing.

“It’s a column that I wrote for the Baptist Trumpet newspaper. It was actually even before I went to college, I was writing it when I was a senior in high school. I was 17 years old and I wrote this weekly column in the newspaper and it was sort of an advice column for teenagers who were believers,” said Huckabee…

“Well it was basically like—you know—I couldn’t say that it was prohibited but I wasn’t sure that it was good for a person’s witness. Anyway, the funniest thing, I mean, I read this and I laughed out loud and I said, while other candidates are being outed for their teenage drug use, their teenage alcohol use, their teenage partying hard, doing all sorts of destructive things like painting graffiti on bridges. The scandal with me is that I wrote a column at age 17 telling Christian young people to live a godly life. So, I mean, I just had to say, is this really controversial? I’d much rather have to defend this than say, yes, I used to regularly be apart of the choom gang. It’s just bizarre.”[su_center_ad]

    As a teenager, Huckleberry couldn’t get a date, and no one would dance with him anyway. This was his way of bringing everyone to his level.

      But to his credit he was also able to pass on to his children the skills needed to protect their virtue as well.

        that’s from Mad Magazine right? No way it’s real.

          Nope …it’s real.

        I bet the old pants were still too big back then only to be a stage prop

        Is it wrong that I think the most attractive part of the picture is the dog?

        So glad you didn’t include any pictures related to this.

    We may not have Palin on the campaign trail but, laugh-wise, Huckabee is almost as good.

    The issue is how far out of touch he is with the median. Extreme theocracy is not and will not be embraced by the masses.

    • fahvel February 6th, 2015 at 1:09 pm

      he’s beyond out of touch. He lives in a terrified hole of scum accepting some spook who, if it exists, wouldn’t like him.

        You’re too kind. Truly.

    I’m sure Huckabee had other attributes other than dance abstinence to protect his virginity.

  6. Boehner-Monkey February 6th, 2015 at 9:38 am

    Maybe we could call Kevin Bacon and hold a dance to show Huck that dancing is really okay.

    Rev. Shaw Moore approved.

    Reminds me of an old joke:

    The lecherous old Baptist minister was about to have his way with the sweet young girl.

    “Where should we do it?” She asks. “How about on a pew?”

    “No, too hard”

    “How about on the floor?”

    “No, the floor’s dirty”

    “How about up against the wall?”

    “Good Lord, NO! God forbid someone walks in and thinks we’re dancing!”

    I’d prefer a dope smoking thinker than anything close to these moronic two faced religious blind people.

    He’s not against people dancing anymore…as long as it’s not married gay couples.

    wow mike is really coming out of the closet with a lot of anti social topics.
    No wonder he had to leave tv and radio in the dust.
