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.
