First it was Republican Congressman J.D. Hayworth (AZ) embracing Henry Ford and refusing to distance himself from Ford's anti-Semitic theory of Americanization. Even more, reports are now swirling around the blogosphere that a Hayworth surrogate speaking at an event in Scottsdale, AZ stated that Hayworth is "a more observant Jew" than those present. After the crowd booed the surrogate and began to walk out, another Hayworth surrogate commented, "No wonder there are anti-Semites."
And how can you forget Republican Congresswoman and Senate Nominee Katherine Harris (FL) when she said that voting for a non-Christian would constitute "legislating sin"?
Now we can add Arkansas' Republican Governor Mike Huckabee to the growing list of Republicans in need of Sensitivity Training 101 for his tasteless comments making light of the travesties of the Holocaust and terrorists taking innocent people hostage.
While appearing on Imus in the Morning today and discussing his recent weight loss, Huckabee told Imus:
"I have just come from six weeks at a concentration camp held by the Democrat party of Arkansas in an undisclosed location, making a hostage tape. That's why I look that way."Seriously, we can't make this stuff up. Watch it for yourself!
