Ask Adorable Kittens

What's the craziest part of Mike Huckabee's recent "Obamba in Kenya"  remarks?

HUCKABEE: I would love to know more. What I know is troubling enough. And one thing that I do know is his having grown up in Kenya, his view of the Brits, for example, very different than the average American. When he gave the bust back to the Brits --
MALZBERG: Of Winston Churchill.
HUCKABEE: The bust of Winston Churchill, a great insult to the British. But then if you think about it, his perspective as growing up in Kenya with a Kenyan father and grandfather, their view of the Mau Mau Revolution in Kenya is very different than ours because he probably grew up hearing that the British were a bunch of imperialists who persecuted his grandfather. 

Let's ask adorable kittens! 
Hmm? Sorry, I fell asleep halfway through! 

I think that the craziest part is that Huckabee seems to think that you have to be Kenyan to be offended by British imperialism! 

Oh, I concur! He seems to be implying that we Americans could not possibly see the British as
"A bunch of  imperialists." 

Oy, Watch what you say there, mate! You're treading on some bloody thin ice, there. You're just lucky me human is holding me back! 

Hey, what's all the racket up there? 

Seriously, you're ruining the mood!

Schmuckabee is a such a great target for satire. Even cute kitties can't resist.
