Mike Huckabee is a skinny blow-hard
Now, it may be that you disliked Moore’s original blast at Ford Motors, or his election year documentary that gave the Bushes such a hard time, but Moore has been highly praised for his latest offering, “Sicko.” Even the “fair and balanced” cable news channel has bee highly positive about a film that dispassionately tells of the struggles of uninsured American families.
Mike Huckabee, who generally does manage to identify with poor folks, at least in theory, tore into the rotund Mr. Moore. The Huckster said, “Michael Moore is an example of why the health care system costs so much in this country. He clearly is one of the reasons that we have a very expensive system.”
Forgive me for bringing up facts, but I was not aware that Moore, who is clearly overweight, has been ill or filed any insurance claims. Talk about killing the messenger. All Michael Moore has done is compellingly expose a system most of us know is broke. Only the super wealthy, insurance companies, and pharmaceuticals which own the Republican Party would not see that.
So much for Mr. Huckabee.

However, Huckabee was right -- fat people like Michael Moore are part of the problem. I worked for a small company several years ago, and we had wonderful insurance. But we had to change to a different provider because our rates were increased dramatically. Why? We had several fat people with diabetes who were running up huge medical bills.
Oh, and Moore did his first docudrama on GM, not Ford.
