Like about 33 percent of the people who comment on shoddily-written political humor blogs, I have pretty much no capacity for determining what is intended as satire and what is an actual earnest piece of journalism or opinion.
Therefore, I can only assume that Slate.com hacked into the president's Facebook account and published the results. And that, to me, seems like it might be some kind of treason. You should ashamed of yourself, Slate!

In Slate today, John Dickerson asks the burning question is Mike Huckabee "Too Funny To Be President?" We won't spoil the article by telling you the answer, but here are a few of Huckabee's zany one-liners, as cataloged by Dickerson.
- "If you think that Medicare is expensive now, wait until 10,000 aging hippies a day find out they can get free drugs."
- "I may not have any foreign policy experience, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night."
- and his imitation of a 1960s Arkansas car mechanic confused about seat belts: "You wanna do what? You wanna put in a strap so you tie yourself down in that car?"
For a special thrill, listen to the podcast version of this article to hear Dale Willman do his impression of Huckabee's impression of the mechanic.

No idea why we're just seeing this video from our friends at Slate now, but, man, are we glad we did…
What did this commercial cost to make? $75? And that money certainly didn't go toward the actors. Hey, and now Ron Paul can make 57,333 more just like it.
