Hot on the heels of stating that Barack Obama was raised in Kenya, former Arkansas governor hMike Huckabee may well have damaged his chances of securing the 2012 Republican presidential nomination after launching a blistering attack on Bristol Palin for "glamorising" single motherhood with an "out of wedlock" pregnancy.
Huckabee criticised the 20-year-old daughter of Sarah Palin saying "There aren't really a lot of single mums out there who are making millions of dollars every year for being famous just for being famous… 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 glamorise the idea of out of children wedlock."
AAlthough Sarah Palin’s star seems to be on the wane it is believed that Huckabee’s comments about her daughter backfire on him as he tries to secure the Republican nomination.
Oh wait it was Natalie Portman he was criticising. Heven forbid he ever meets Justine Thornton (Ed Miliband’s partner – Ed Miliband is the leader of the opposition Labour Party here. They are not married and they have two children). His head might explode
