Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee continued his campaign to unseat Charlie Sheen as shiny media object of the moment by slamming Best Actress winner Natalie Portman for her out-of-wedlock pregnancy. Huckabee took Portman to task Monday, in an appearance on Mike Medved‘s radio show, for “glamoriz(ing)” single motherhood, an opinion he shares with Fox News colleague Sarah Palin. Like Palin, though, Huckabee also seems unaware of the existence of Bristol Palin.
Huckabee waxes statistical about the consequences of out-of-wedlock births, but like Palin, seems to prefer unwanted teen pregnancies to the choices of single, successful adult women to enter single motherhood:
Here’s one humble suggestion. Maybe there would be fewer out-of-wedlock pregnancies if there were more sex education, including abstinence and safer sex. Even Bristol knows that.
Also, stop calling it “wedlock.” Sounds like something you get from stepping on a rusty nail.
