Mike Huckabee's comments about Democrats and the female libido are likely to be soon forgotten, but they do reflect a broader problem the Republican Party has when it comes to women.

The Rep party is using women as part of their agenda, and it is so irritating! If it were not for a woman, they wouldn't even be here.Do they ever mention all their extra curicular activities outside their marriages??? And it is happening all the time.
Noted Carrie.

I signed a petition, earlier today, to the Boehner thing, urging him to spank Huckie, fat chance.
With enough time,a nd some common sense(!) the GOP might just alienate every woman except for Phyllis Shaffley!
Loving Jesus, but can't act like Christians to (literally) save their souls! Bunch of buffoons!!

Thanks Carrei for the link to the article by Mr. Blake and Mr. Sullivan. Great video and Huckabee's words will come back to bite him next election round. Read, viewed and noted.

The scary part is that Republican groomers are coaching these clowns to keep their mouths shut about women's health issues so as not to repulse female voters. In other words, there is no move to modernize their approach to women or renounce patronizing women and their ability to make decisions without male guidance. They just want them to fake it long enough to get elected. Then they can do what they please.

This guy is sick. He should be locked up in an institution.

Thanks,Carrie, that got a big laugh from me, because with jokers like this the only thing you can do is laugh.

@Elizabeth, the GOP is trying to use women as part of their agenda, but of late is failing miserably at it. Every time one of them gets caught in the spotlights of the TV cameras, he forgets all the coaching to keep his mouth shut he had and out comes all this utter nonsense.
As the article concludes: "Huckabee is generally one of the GOP's most gifted messengers. If even he is falling into this kind of a rathole, that doesn't suggest great things ahead for his party." So let us be thankful for every new 'blooper' the GOP makes, it'll be their downfall in the end.

Lona is in the right here. Every time this kind of thing happens Dems start a petition to them to apologize, or party leaders to disavow them, or both. I sign, but I secretly hope they will persist even more loudly in their idiocy so they will lose more elections.

Mike Huckabee....Who He.?....Hummmm.... Me thinketh he be a Pat Buchanan copy cat........be it by design or just like Pat...in fear of losing his income as a political candidate who isn't in it to win ...but for that income until he lands some outside gigs after his campaign funds are down to their last drops. Kind of like $arah Palin also, actually. :-)

He is, to me, like a dog who finally catches his own tail and runs around in circles until he lets go of his tail or drops dead from dizziness ..and that's what pathetic ol Mike should do...let go of his Fox tail .....metaphorically speaking that is......while he still has his self induced illusions of leaving this ol life with a shred of dignity.........

Loved Louie Gohmert,s description of the female plumbing! Then I had a serious thought.Who, in the face of the earth would vote for such an idiot????.Had a sobering thought. !
He is from TEXAS.!.
As the saying goes. "No sign of intelligent life there"
