Former Fox News host and potential GOP presidential contender Mike Huckabee locked horns with Comedy Central’s Jon Stewart Monday over Huckabee’s fondness for conservative rocker Ted Nugent while criticizing pop icons like Beyonce.
“Do you know any parent who has a daughter who says, ‘Honey, if you make really good grades, someday when you’re 12 or 13 we’ll get you your own stripper pole?'” Huckabee asked.
The conversation was about Beyonce because that’s apparently the only page Huckabee’s new book, “God, Guns, Grits and Gravy” that Stewart had read.
Nonetheless, Stewart chose to use a clip of Huckabee playing bass during an appearance Nugent made on his show performing the 1978 hit “Cat Scratch Fever” – basically calling Huckabee a hypocrite for playing a song with an overtly erotic theme while criticizing Beyonce’s own soft-core porn act.
Huckabee wasn’t giving ground.
“My point is, that song is an adult song, geared for adults,” he said. “But today, we have a very different kind of depiction and things that are considered perfectly OK for kids.”
Stewart pretended he didn’t get it.
He must not have seen a Pepsi commercial – or Super Bowl halftime show – in the past few years.
