What Does Republican presidential contender Mike Huckabee have to do with the Canadian National Igloo? I'm glad you asked. Canadian comedian Rick Mercer keeps Canadians laughing by talking to dumb Americans. Governor Mike Huckabee was once one of those dumb Americans.
Mike Huckabee has since emerged as one of the Republican front-runner candidates for the presidency. The Canadians are really laughing now. Cause Huckabee's foreign policy expertise is almost as stellar as that of the notoriously dumb Republican who currently resides in the White House.
Toronto Star: DES MOINES, Iowa–You don't want to believe it. You just don't want to believe that a leading candidate for the Republican presidential nomination, two steps from power in the free world, really thought that Canada had a national igloo.
When Rick Mercer comes on the phone to talk about Mike Huckabee, we expect he'll explain it was a joke. Surely, he'll assure us that the wisecracking former Arkansas governor was just playing along for a laugh in Mercer's now-iconic Talking To Americans television spots.
No, what Mercer tells us should cause shudders in all igloos across the country, from split-levels to bungalows. "He wasn't in on it," Mercer says. "The governor of Arkansas thought there was a Canadian national igloo. The governor of Arkansas would have believed the world was flat."
