Huckabee: The Perfect Mother's Day Gift

red_t-shirt

People often ask me, “Mike, what should I get my mother for Mother’s Day?”

I answer, “Friendo, you should get your beloved mom a political t-shirt, maybe a bumper sticker, preferably from some dude with his own PAC.” 

(Explanation for this post: my name is on former presidential candidate and current Fox News Host Mike Huckabee’s email list. I got an email from Team Huck last night. )

    You call people ‘friendo?’ Remind me to leave the country if you ever walk in the room with a coin in your hand…

    Hah. Heads or tails, dude.

    I was JUST thinking, “What would Mike Hastings suggest I get my mother for Mother’s Day?” and — poof! — the answer appears. Thank you, Mike Hastings, you are truly the god of gift-giving. And beware, everyone: I am now officially adding ‘friendo’ to my vocabulary.

      Yes, it’s a question I’m constantly asked. “Bombarded” is probably the word I’m looking for.

      During Christmas 2003, I got my older brother a coffee mug from the Joe Lieberman campaign, so every morning he could have a cup of “Joe-Mentum.” Like momentum, but with Joe. That same Holiday Season, I got my mom a Howard Dean wool ski cap, and my dad a George W. Bush belt buckle.

      Went over like gangbusters, sure enough.

    Ha. Huckabee believes in Life, Liberty, and Pursuit of Happiness for men alone.
    A perfect way to say, “Happy Mother’s Day!” or in other words, “I’m glad you are chained to the stove and making babies!”.
