Talking Points Memo brings us a bizarre excerpt from a speech Mike Huckabee gave Tuesday night in Iowa.
You see, I have a concern that one of the reasons we lose battles we should win is because we wait to see whether or not the crowd is going to be with us. … Because the fact is we don’t like to do things by ourselves. We really don’t. Guys like to go fishing with other men. They like to go hunting with other men. Women like to go to the restroom with other women. I don’t get that. I can tell you this much: if I ever say, ‘I have to go to the restroom’ and some guy says, ‘I’ll go with you,’ he ain’t goin’ with me. That much I know.
So real men should be willing to take political stands on their own, just like they go to the bathroom on their own? The two are similar? That explains a good number of recent Republican political stands.
