Huckabee appears on Leno, crosses picket line

yeah, this is my second post regarding the writer's strike, but i felt this deserved a new post. perhaps my other post can be merged with this one?

CNN Political Ticker: All politics, all the time Blog Archive - Huckabee appears on Leno, crosses picket line - Blogs from CNN.com

Quote:
MASON CITY, Iowa (AP) Republican Mike Huckabee, a presidential candidate sounding a populist theme, appeared on the "Tonight Show" with Jay Leno on Wednesday despite the strike and picketing by the show's writers.

Earlier Wednesday, Huckabee said he supports the writers and did not think he would be crossing a picket line, because he believed the writers had made an agreement to allow late night shows back on the air.

"My understanding is that there was a special arrangement made for the late-night shows, and the writers have made this agreement to let the late night shows to come back on, so I don't anticipate that it's crossing a picket line," Huckabee told reporters traveling with him Wednesday from Fort Dodge to Mason City.

In fact, that is true only of David Letterman, who has a separate agreement with writers for his "Late Show."

Told he was mistaken and that writers had cleared only Letterman's show, Huckabee protested:

"But my understanding is there's a sort of dispensation given to the late-night shows, is that right?"

Told again that he was wrong, Huckabee murmured, "Hmmm," and, "Oh," before answering another question.


The former Arkansas governor faced an unfriendly reception.

A picketer outside the Burbank, Calif., studio where Leno tapes his show held a sign saying, "Huckabee is a scab." Another picketer carried a sign saying, "Huckabee, what would Jesus do?"

"I think it's just another reason not to vote for him," said Allan Katz, a veteran TV writer who was picketing.

Huckabee said he stood with the writers.

"I support the writers, by the way. Unequivocally, absolutely," he said. "They're dead right on this one. And they ought to get royalties off the residuals and the long-term contracts."

"I don't think anybody supports the producers on this one," he added. "Maybe the producers support the producers, but I think everybody in the business and even the general public supports the writers."
yeah, that's exactly what America needs

Huckabee is showing his own gross incompetence. He isn't smart enough to have someone on his staff to keep him out of such situations. He looks a little less intelligent every day.

.... people who cross picket lines.

Guys, this is Mike Huckabee. Since when has a Republican ever cared about unions and labor disputes? Of course he crossed a picket line while trying to make it look like he's not crossing a picket line. He's a campaigning Republican.
