First Lady Janet “Rambette” Huckabee (c)
During an afternoon tea party at the elegant governor’s mansion in the capital of South Carolina, former Arkansas first lady Janet Huckabee told CNN she is pretty handy with a grenade launcher.
Huckabee, the wife of Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee, said in an interview that she once shot a grenade launcher at a National Guard training camp in Arkansas.
“I have fired a grenade launcher and hit the target two out of three times, so I think that’s pretty good odds for me,” she said, noting that she had a special interest in military matters and has also jumped out of an airplane, flown in an F-16 and shot an MP5 submachine gun.
Bonus points to the commenter who can come up with the photoshop.
Why isn’t she in Iraq?
That shit’s all sport for her but not for those guys who are getting shot at in Iraq and Afghanistan. They’re not having nearly as much fun.
If Huckabee becomes Prez, we need not worry about any kind of sex scandal involving his daughter. ‘Nuff said.
you wanted a photoshop?
This immediately reminds me of that movie f”Pass the Ammo” filmed in Eureka Springs (beautiful country I miss it, and the “Christ of the Ozarks” is there…
In a way, I love that kind of crazy, as long as it stays there..pleae don’t let it go national.
grrr photobucket code doesn’t work.
here’s the link.
Plus, I’m pretty sure she’s flashing a gang sign in that picture.
So (not that I want this), we could in theory have a first lady with more military experience than President B43.
I don’t know much about grenade launchers, but I would think that they work similar to grenades, in that hitting the target isn’t really, you know, necessary. “Close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades” and all that.
Well, golly, forget the lousy Mideast wars. Put her in charge of the vaunted Missile Defense system or whatever the hell they’re calling it these days. You know, the one that’s going to protect us from all those scary incoming Iranian nukes and so far can’t manage to hit the broad side of a barn, so to speak. If she could get two out of three, she’d be better than the Pentagon’s record.
here ya go.
well, so long as Huckabee doesn’t invite fellow Arkansan Big Dog to the WH, he kinda has a thing for chunky chicks, ya know.
so far the competition’s between me and mr. euro-for-an-e
and i wouldn’t be so cocky about the sex scandal thing. She’s not bad looking, and there are plenty of plus-sized women with loose morals
watch it bucko; before long, that’s going to be ‘mr. 2-bucks-a-euro-for-an-e’ to you…
Renato beat me to it–Dukakis in a tank is the way to go.
He also managed to suggest that it’s all Clinton’s fault in a post that I never would have conceived it’s possible. Damn, shit like this makes me sympathetic for Jenna Bush; I never imagined that would be possible.
before long i’ll be living in europe and couldn’t really care less!
Ha! This cracked me up. Somebody just Photoshop in a speech bubble having her say “Gs up hoes down while you muhfuckas bounce to this.”
i couldn’t resist, either.
Now if I had any skill with photo shop I’d do the traditional, American thing that would instantly remind people of the name “Huckabee” or what the name would remind them of. Ma in the middle with a big brown jug and a shot-gun (or grenade launcher), daughter armed and same for the old fart next to her. Ya know, all Hatfield And McCoy like.
Punchy, don’t be a dick. There’s plenty to pick on about Huckabee and his wife WRT their attitudes. Picking on his daughter for her appearance? That’s Limbaugh-style shit — you’re better than that.
i tried applying in gitmo, but they had no use for someone with a management degree.
Yeah, I was going to call him on it as well. Picking on someone because of their appearance is easy, if you’re going to go for a partisan insult use a better imagination. No cookie for you.
Actually, I’m not really sure why this is even a story. So she fired off a couple rounds of grenades and thought she was a pretty good shot. Whoopee for her. Maybe she can install a grenade launcher range behind the white house when she’s first lady.
I am reasonably sure he was not discussing the appearance of their daughter (do they even have one), but rather was stating no one is going to screw around with someone’s daughter when the mother is popping off rocket propelled grenades.
At least that is how I interpreted his comment.
she once shot a grenade launcher at a National Guard training camp in Arkansas
I hope to God the Guardsmen returned fire!
Good point. If that’s how the comment was meant, then I’m sorry, Punchy.
It just always gets my dander up when I see how the daughters of politicians have their appearance scrutinized, whereas the sons rarely have to put up with that crap.
I was going to echo Krista, but I suppose JC’s explanation makes sense. Better phrasing might help a little next time, Punchy.
Is she flashing some sort of “gang sign” with her hands? Her fingers seemed oddly positioned although maybe she’s just showing off her trigger finger.
I think she’s just half-vulcan, myself.
Maybe she’s got the electrodactly?
Not that I support the making fun of the appearances of the children of political candidates, but how come only right-wingers get to do this?
The playing field really is unlevel.
“I have fired a grenade launcher and hit the target two out of three times”…the third time I hit myself right in the face.
Those other people in the photo are meteorologists, not family members.
Shouldn’t she be shooting it at, say, an Al Qaeda training camp, rather than attacking our troops? Hopefully she didn’t kill anybody.
I didn’t know she was cheney’s sister
Well, clearly she is, under the radar, flashing the Folk Gang sign. Here are the Gang signs in question.
Now, why she is signaling allegiance to the Folk Nation, ya got me.
She serves on a lot of corporate boards, maybe she’s simply on the Folk Nation Gang board…
Cut to First Lady Huckabee, in the Oval Office, loading her shotgun.
First Lady Huckabee: I’ll tell you one thing, they ain’t gettin’ the TV.
who’s the cute plumper in the green shirt?
““Close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades” and all that.”
Horseshoes, hand-grenades, and…liberal talking points.
Oh…and BTW, everyone…
Liberals are so tolerant and peaceful.
The woman on the left is Tabitha Bray, and I think she’s very attractive.
When I read the post i said to myself, “self, how long before Punchy makes some crack about the appearance of a woman in this photo?”
And the answer is: three comments.
If you haven’t noticed by now that Punchy is typically the firstest with a salacious remark, then you are not paying much attention.
