The Timeless Humour of the Retarded Right

Mike Huckabee, former Arkansas governor, failed Republican presidential candidate, creationist, and general fuckwad adds "merry jokester" to his list of attributes. Addressing a group of slack-jawed yokels at an NRA convention, Huckabee adlibbed this pearl in repsonse to an unexpected offstage noise:
“That was Barack Obama, he just tripped off a chair, he's getting ready to speak,” said the former Arkansas governor, to audience laughter. Somebody aimed a gun at him and he dove for the floor.”
Huh? What does that even mean? You see, aside from the general crassness of "joking" about shooting Barack Obama, Huckabee perfectly demonstrates another curious quality of right-wing humour; namely that it's not in the least bit funny.
Watch the hilarity below...and try to control your laughter.

I didn't get the joke either. He should avoid ad-libbing.

Most of what he says doesn't make sense. He should just avoid speaking altogether.

Actually, even the audience didn't laugh at the punch line. Just a few titters.

They probably miss Charlton Heston. He was way funnier, albeit unintentionally.

The Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception of the Holy Virgin Mary is a neo-Gothic church that serves as the cathedral of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Moscow. Located in the Central Administrative Okrug, it is one of only two Catholic churches in Moscow and the largest in Russia. The construction of the cathedral was proposed by the Czarist government in 1894. Groundbreaking was in 1899; construction work began in 1901 and was completed ten years later.
