Colonel Sanders once said something to the effect that he’d never trust a man who didn’t like chicken. Mike Huckabee’s found one: Mitt Romney.
Mitt Romney’s failure to eat fried chicken with the skin on is nothing short of blasphemy here in the South, according to GOP rival Mike Huckabee.
It should be considered blasphemy anywhere, but especially in the South.
Romney, of Massachusetts, dug into a piece fried chicken at KFC while campaigning in Lutz, Florida on Saturday, but not before peeling off what most would consider the best part — the crispy skin.
Is it any surprise that the phony Northeastern liberal governor would be a picky eater? I guess not.
“I can tell you this,” he said, “any Southerner knows if you don’t eat the skin don’t bother calling it fried chicken.”
“So that’s good. I’m glad that he did that, because that means I’m going to win Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee, Arkansas, Oklahoma … all these great Southern states that understand the best part of fried chicken is the skin, if you’re going to eat it that way.”
I hope you’re right, Mike. Go Huckabee!
