Mitt Romney insults a Southern tradition

Posted By on Mon, Jan 28, 2008 at 7:28 PM

Mitt Romney is headed to catastrophe, according to Mike Huckabee, because of his blasphemous removal of the skin from a piece of fried chicken before eating it. CNN quotes Huckabee:

"I can tell you this," he said, "any Southerner knows if you don’t eat the skin don’t bother calling it fried chicken.

"So that's good. I'm glad that he did that, because that means I'm going to win Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee, Arkansas, Oklahoma … all these great Southern states that understand the best part of fried chicken is the skin, if you're going to eat it that way."

CNN responds by asking Huckabee himself a troubling question. The full story's here.
