The Huckabee Show

I have to admit that this bothers me just a little…


KDFW is our local FOX affiliate, the same station that brings us “The Simpsons” and “Family Guy.” It is public broadcast television. It does not require a cable or satellite subscription.

KDFW, beginning next Monday, will be airing “The Huckabee Show” from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.

It just seems to me that political talk shows, particularly extreme right wing political talk shows, should be restricted to the cable network — you know, FOX News. That’s what it’s there for, right? I mean, what’s next… Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity? All in all, though, I believe I am taking this rather well. Can you imagine how the Republicans would be screaming if KXAS, our local NBC affiliate, starting airing Keith Olbermann or Rachel Maddow?

  1. Do what I do. Send links to the customer service department like this one:

    Huckabee is another Hope full shill.

    There are many here among us believing life not a joke.

  2. Isn’t there a rest from these poorly, or barely educated blowhards? These fundamentalist creatures with such a limited outlook? Give me a break!

  3. LOVE the new Huckabee Show!!! Look forward to sharing with MANY of my friends that appreciate a man of integrity. Blessings Big-Time

  4. @ Suzan:
    Really? You enjoyed that? I had somebody record it for me and just finished watching it. I won’t make that mistake again. While I was thankful that it was not purely political in nature, there were some unmistakable… let’s call them “hints” (for lack of a better word). His insistence upon being called “Governor,” for example. There was also no doubt whatsoever of his religion.

    I don’t know if you’re old enough to recall the old Dinah Shore show, but that is what he reminded me of: a male version of Dinah Shore, but without the talent or entertainment value. Sorry, but it was just bad. Bad, bad, bad. I hope Mr. Huckabee is able to land a day job somewhere — far, far away from any television cameras. (I also hope, for his sake, that he is able to lose some of the weight. Again.)

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
