She won over the Academy, but Natalie Portman doesn't have a fan in presidential prospect Mike Huckabee.
The former Arkansas governor and Fox News Channel host attacked the best actress winner, 29, who's currently expecting her first child with fiance Benjamin Millepied.
"People see a Natalie Portman who boasts, 'we're not married but we're having these children and they're doing just fine," Huckabee told radio host Michael Medved on his show Monday. "I think it gives a distorted image. It's unfortunate that we glorify and glamorize the idea of out-of- wedlock children."
Calling Portman's pregnancy "troubling," Huckabee went on to say that many single parents don't have the resources to hire help, the way someone like the Black Swan star would.
Are we SURE Huckabee was talking about Natalie Portman? Because what he describes concerning the fact that her ability to raise this child as a single mother is not typical of what single mothers go through reminds me of somebody.
Wait, don't tell me.
Gee it is right on the tip of my tongue, who was that again?
Oh yeah, her!
Well isn't it interesting that Huckabee attacks a famous single mother when perhaps the most famous single mom in the country is the daughter of his most direct competition for the evangelical vote? What a coinky dink!
You don't think that Huckabee might be using a little diversion here do you? You know, attacking Portman for choosing to get pregnant out of wedlock, and then sort of using that as a cowardly way to actually attack Sarah Palin's daughter for making the raising of a child as a single mother look easy due to her personal wealth and that of her family?
I mean that would just be ugly if he were to do something like that. And he is supposed to be the nice Republican candidate, isn't he?
I wonder what the Grizzled Mama herself thinks about this judgemental tone concerning single motherhood, and its possible reflection on Bristol?
Uh oh Huck! I think you may have to watch your ass around the Fox studios for awhile. I can tell you right now that Sister Sarah does NOT pull any punches when she believes that somebody has gone after one of her children.
Now excuse me while I go to find a comfortable chair and get a big bowl of popcorn, because this is one battle I do NOT want to miss!
