What The Huck?!

The Huckster does it again! Either he is still the most uninformed man in politics, or he has adopted the ease for lying that the last man from Hope had.

Early in the day on Wednesday, Huckabee expressed complete support of the Writer's Guild of America strike when he said, "I support the writers, by the
way. Unequivocally, absolutely. They’re dead right on this one. I don’t think anybody supports the producers on this one. Maybe the producers support the producers, but I think everybody in the business and even the general public supports the writers.”

Wednesday afternoon, however, Huck appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. This show, which is owned by NBC, is currently a target of the WGA strike.
When questioned on why he crossed the picket lines, especially after giving the WGA absolute support, Huck responded that he thought there was some special agreement with late night shows. When he was informed that there was not, he responded, "Oh."

Of course, Huck may have noticed the picket line if, as is being reported on Deadline Hollywood, he had not snuck onto the NBC lot via the unpicketed Telemundo gate. I wonder why he used that gate...
