Huckabee goes a-huntin'

Republican Mike Huckabee took his turn Wednesday, going on a pheasant hunt in Osceola, Iowa during which the Arkansas governor made it clear he is no stranger to the great outdoors.

Huckabee's team brought back three pheasants — one of which the candidate claimed he personally shot — and promised they'd be "cleaned and eaten."

Huckabee, who polls show continues to hold onto his lead in Iowa eight days before the state's caucuses — also joked the trip could serve as a metaphorical campaign message. "Don't get in my way," he said while pointing to the three dead birds.

"This is what happens…You vote for me, you live. You don't…there you go."

The CNN anchor says he has a "morbid" sense of humor....These hunting outings are pretty ridiculous and Huck certainly doesn't disappoint. I know he thinks he's very funny, but it's really a bit much...Can someone explain to me why hunting is some sort of prerequisite for the office of the president and vice president? Did Mike shoot anybody in the face? Sorry, I couldn't help myself... (h/t rasta)
