Huckabee's hunting photo-op gone wrong.

Why is it that politicians try to shows themselves as good ol' boys who like to hunt and fish?
When politicians go hunting there are about five things that can happen, four of them are bad. Shooting over the heads of reporters falls in the latter column.

At one point, Huckabee’s party turned toward a cluster of reporters and cameramen and, when they kicked up a pheasant, fired shotgun blasts over the group’s heads.

This, friends, is dangerously bad hunting form.

If you grew up hunting you know this happens, someone gets tunnel vision and keeps the gun barrel swinging on their target without keeping track of the people around them. Just ask Dick Cheney.

Does this show that Mike Huckabee is unfit to be President? No, it just shows that if you go hunting as a political, go without reporters. Trying to become 'one of boys' is a recipe for disaster.

My advice for Mike, if one of the Iowa farm boys asks you if you want a dip of Copenhagen, say no thanks. If you try to 'fit in' by taking a pinch between your cheek and gum, your face will turn green and you may have an expression like this.
