Big Dan Exclusive Interview With Mike Huckabee/New CD

(CD cover for Mike Huckabee & the Huckster's "Floatin' Cross")

Big Dan's Big Blog has an exclusive interview with Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee, and we'll also ask him about his new CD: Mike Huckabee & the Hucksters/"Floatin' Cross".

BD: Nice to have you here, Mike.

Huck: Good to be here, Big Dan.

BD: Before we get into your new "Floatin' Cross" CD, I'd like to ask you about the accusations that the bookshelf in the background of your new ad looks like a cross floating across the screen. In fact, Ron Paul said, "When fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in a flag and carrying a cross." Ron Paul also accuses you of implying that the other candidates aren't "as Christian" as you.

Huck: That is absolutely false! That is not a bookshelf behind me, that is a floating cross. That's why I named our new CD "Floating Cross." Secondly, I am more Christian than the other candidates. Did you see crosses floating in back of ANY other candidate, but me? I am the only candidate with crosses floating behind him! I kept telling my campaign workers that there were crosses floating behind me, so when I shot this commercial, I suspected there would be a cross floating behind me. I'm glad the camera caught it!

BD: Can you talk about your statement that Jesus is helping you surge in the polls?

Huck: Yes. Jesus is helping me surge in the polls.

BD: Can you expand on that a little?

Huck: OK. Jesus is helping me surge in the polls...and Jesus is NOT helping the other candidates surge in the polls.

BD: Are you saying Jesus wants you to win the election?

Huck: Yes. Don't forget, I'm a Baptist minister. Me and the "Prince of Peace" are like THIS (crosses his fingers together)! A vote for anyone else but me, is a vote against Jesus!

BD: Let's talk about your new CD. The name of your band is "Mike Huckabee and the Hucksters". You do know, that the word "Huckster" is a derrogatory term?

Huck: NO! Aren't they the people who Huck corn out in the mid-west? I was trying to identify with the midwesterners!

BD: That would be corn-HUSK-ing, like the Nebraska CornHuskers...

Huck: Oh, crap! Are you kidding me???

BD: The song, (I Can't Get No) Crucifixtion, the riff at the beginning seems to be a lot like the Rolling Stone's (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction.

Huck: I thought of that riff way before those godless Rolling Stones did!

BD: And your song, Imagine (there's no separation of church & state) sounds a lot like John Lennon's Imagine...

Huck: Next you're going to say that "Floatin' Cross" sounds like Crosby, Stills, & Nach's "Southern Cross"...

BD: Well, I was getting to that...
