Former fatty (and current dark horse presidential candidate) Mike Huckabee has landed in hot water (hot gas?) after joking that he lost his excess avoirdupois thanks to the slimming program of a concentration camp.
"I have just come out of six weeks at a concentration camp held by the Democrat Party of Arkansas in an undisclosed location, making a hostage tape," Huckabee said. "That's why I look that way."
Another politician might try to plead insanity from an overdose of soft drinks or cigarettes – but Huckabee's of a mind to ban both of those things. A better explanation might be that the governor, ironically, is a bit of a lightweight.
