by Jeremy Taylor, posted Mar 8th 2011 6:10AM
'The Colbert Report'Mike Huckabee made waves last week when he called Natalie Portman out for "boasting" about being pregnant out of wedlock.

Huckabee's criticism didn't sit well with Stephen Colbert, and he explained why on 'The Colbert Report' (Weeknights, 11:30PM ET on Comedy Central.)

"What are you thinking, Governor? Look, I'm no fan of single mothers either, but it's Natalie Portman we're talking about," Colbert said of the 'Star Wars' Episode I, II and III actress. "That kid she's pregnant with, is Luke Skywalker! Think!"

'The Colbert Report'Potential presidential candidate Mike Huckabee was the guest on Thursday's 'The Colbert Report' (Weeknights, 11:30PM ET on Comedy Central.) However, it was Steven Colbert who made the dramatic announcement about his plans for 2012.

"Nation, I have a very important announcement to make," Colbert declared. "I've given this a lot of thought, I've spoken to my family, and tonight, I am officially declaring I am not running for President.

"Because I do not have a vision to push this country forward," Colbert continued. "I am not prepared to face our problems. And, most of all, I do not feel your pain. In fact, F--k, your pain.

Jon Stewart on a Weird Republican Theme -- Victory as 'Disaster' (VIDEO)

Jon Stewart on a Weird Republican Theme -- Victory as 'Disaster'Last night, the Republican Party swept back into power, reclaiming at least 60 seats in the House of Representatives. It was one of the most radical political transformations in seven decades. But Jon Stewart saw something weird about the Fox News coverage of the election.

On 'The Daily Show' (weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central), Stewart watched as Fox covered the event. Oddly enough, many Fox News pundits -- including Mike Huckabee and Sarah Palin -- used the same metaphor for the victory. The GOP triumph was described as a "tidal wave," an "earthquake" and a "tsunami."

Mike Huckabee compared the win to one of the more powerful natural disasters in American history: a 19th century earthquake which sent shockwaves across half the country, causing the Mississippi River to run backwards. Jon pointed out a common theme here: "You do realize all your metaphors for Republican victory ... killed thousands of people."

Chris Matthews Tries to Figure Out Why the Obama Administration Thinks Mike Huckabee Will Be GOP Nominee in 2012 (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Oct 14th 2010 4:45PM
On 'Hardball With Chris Matthews' (weekdays, 5PM ET on MSNBC) Matthews and Howard Fineman discussed a New York Times report that the Obama White House expects Mike Huckabee to be the GOP nominee for president in 2012.

Neither Fineman or Matthews seemed particularly convinced that Huckabee would actually emerge from the primaries, so they tried to think of reasons why the Obama Administration would want people to think that he would.

"Huckabee is probably one of the people they are least afraid of," was Fineman's theory.

Matthews had a different take:

"My producers believe that the reason they are doing this is they are setting (Huckabee) up as the reasonable conservative, so when he fails. . . when someone wilder and crazier ( is nominated) they'll be able to say, 'It's too bad they didn't run a more reasonable man like Mike Huckabee.'"

Or maybe the White House is just trying to tweak notorious Huck-a-phobe Ann Coulter.

Jon Voight is Beffudled by Mayor Bloomberg's Support for the 'Ground Zero Mosque' (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Sep 13th 2010 12:30PM
Jon Voight was on 'Huckebee' (Saturday, 8 PM ET on Fox News) and offered up some conspiratorial-sounding opinions on the so-called 'Ground Zero Mosque.'

Voight expressed his bewilderment that New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg had OK'ed the mosque project, which Voight views as a "desecration against (a) heroic burial ground."

"I can only feel that there must be some personal agenda which we have yet to see," was how Voight characterized Bloomberg's support for the mosque. "And I'm going to be waiting for it."

We hope that when this "personal agenda" is exposed, it turns out to be something really wacky -- like Bloomberg being hopelessly addicted to falafel.

Frank Caliendo Is Working on His Obama Impression (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Sep 7th 2010 2:30PM
Comedian Frank Caliendo gained prominence by imitating the voices of Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, among other luminaries. This weekend on 'Huckebee' (Saturday 8 PM ET on Fox News), he broke out his new Obama impression, though admitted it's still a work in progress.

"(Obama) begins sentences with the words 'look' or 'here's the deal,' Caliendo explained to Huckabee's audience, while imitating the President. "Now if he says both of them he thinks it's pretty important, and its probably going to cost you a couple bucks."

It's the cadence, like he talks slow at the beginning," Caliendo continued. "And-speeds-up-at-the-end."

Given the lack of good Obama impersonators out there, Caliendo's early efforts are already pretty solid. Still, it's unlikely Caliendo will become the go-to imitator of the president, because, as he pointed out "it (looks) like Cartman from South Park trying to do him."

Mike Huckabee Talks With an Afghanistan War Veteran Who Considered SuicideFormer Army Ranger captain Nate Self is a highly-decorated war hero. He has served in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Kosovo. But even the knowledge of his own heroism wasn't enough to prevent Nate from wanting to kill himself. On 'The Huckabee Show' (weekends, 8PM ET on Fox News), Self described a mission in Afghanistan which traumatized him such an extent that he wanted to die.

Captain Self was sent to rescue a missing-in-action Navy SEAL. In the course of this operation, Nate ended up fighting against enemy soldiers from before dawn until after dusk. Eventually, he located the SEAL -- but the man was already dead. Still, Ranger Self brought the SEAL's body back. However, Nate lost six of his own men in the course of the operation.

Cutting Edge Hand Transplant Featured on 'The Huckebee Show' (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Aug 12th 2010 10:25AM
Amazing medical science was on display during Thursday's 'The Huckebee Show' (Weekdays, syndicated.)

Mike Huckabee welcomed former marine corporal Joshua Maloney , who lost his hand in a training exercise, and is one of the nine people in the country who has received a complete hand transplant.

The now 24-year old was able to effortlessly shake Huckabee's hand upon introduction.

Dr. Andrew Lee, who performed the procedure, was asked why hand transplants from cadavers aren't the solution for everyone who has lost a hand. "I think ultimately it will be," Lee responded.

"Josh, do you feel like it's your hand now," Huckabee wondered. "Does it have the feeling it's yours?"

"I've never had a problem with it," Maloney responded.

Tommy Chong to Huckabee: Weed Lies Like Yours Put Me in Jail (VIDEO)

by Oliver Miller, posted Aug 4th 2010 8:50PM
Tommy Chong Does His Best to Defend Weed on 'Huckabee'Things got a little feisty on 'The Huckabee Show' (weekdays, syndicated). Actor and comedian Tommy Chong was invited on the show to discuss marijuana legalization. Chong is best known for his pothead-based performances in the 'Up in Smoke' series of movies. So, it was understandable that he'd have a different point of view about "legalizing it," as compared to the conservative Mike Huckabee. But then, Chong started to get annoyed -- and that's when the anger, the interrupting, and the use of a curse word happened.


Tommy repeatedly accused Huckabee and fellow guest David Evans of lying about the effects of pot use. Eventually, Chong just got mad and started directly fighting with Huckabee.

"You're getting paid to say what you're sayin'," Chong said to Huckabee. " ... You get paid to recite all the lies."

Huckabee admitted to getting paid for his show, but denied that he was being paid to promote any particular point of view. Which was about the point at which Tommy Chong cursed at Mike. He called Huckabee a "mushroom farmer." "... You know what a mushroom farmer is? ... You keep em' in the dark, and you throw *BLEEPED* on them."

The Daily Show"Sarah Palin: Vet This!": More of that thrilling Republican National Convention coverage. I think I either underestimated just how super-snarky the right is or I just missed a hefty chunk of all the jackassery from the convention coverage. I mean, Sarah Palin and Rudy Giuliani mocking my community service alone would probably leave me in a serious case of playground tears.

A Daily Show: February 4, 2008

Conan, Stephen, and JonOccasionally, I will watch a particularly crazy episode of The Daily Show or The Colbert Report and sit through the credits feeling very angry with myself. "I had nothing to do today," I often think. "I could have jumped onto a bus and gone to a taping to get a piece of that awesomeness." Well, I am sad to report that this happened again, but this time in the most extreme way possible. I'm itching to talk about it and let my fangirly nerves express themselves, but I need to go through this chronologically or my brain will explode.

Jon StewartJon Stewart started off by sharing the New York Daily News' list of the Top Ten Best Dressed New Yorkers... He was #10. I laughed even before he showed the photos of himself in daywear, because in just about every photo of Jon I've seen out in public or with fans, he's wearing the same grey t-shirt. Ah, no matter. Any list that honors Jon is a good list.
