Huckabee began his Tuesday interview with Nugent by asking about "Gonzo, the wonder Labrador Retriever."
"Nobody hunts more than the Nugent family," Nugent explained. "We literally hunt anywhere between 250 and 300 days a year. And you think Gonzo is good on ducks, you should see him on squirrels and doves and rabbits and woodcock and grouse. He really is a mystical, wonderful hunting dog."
"Well, maybe we ought to turn him loose on some Democrats and see if he can hunt them too," Huckabee suggested.
"Well, there's a lot of varmints out there," Nugent agreed. "I think he would do good pointing to varmints and then we could vote them out of office. What do you say?"
"I'm all about it," Huckabee replied.
Equating Democrats with "varmints" and suggesting that they be hunted by a gun toting lunatic, does not seem like the kind of language that an ex-minister should be using don't you agree?
But then again since when did any of these Right Wing Evangelicals ever let their religion interfere with their hatred of liberals?
