Mike Huckabee, who’s come under the media microscope (even more so than before) recently received more attention for his admonitions toward Natalie Portman and other single celebrity soon-to-be moms for showing a glamorized version of out-of-wedlock pregnancies and motherhood.
Huck on most unmarried mothers: “There aren’t really a lot of single moms out there who are making millions of dollars every year for being in a movie,” he said. “And I think it gives a distorted image. … Most single moms are very poor, uneducated, can’t get a job, and if it weren’t for government assistance, their kids would be starving to death and never have health care. And that’s the story that we’re not seeing, and it’s unfortunate that we glorify and glamorize the idea of out-of-wedlock children.”
Yes, this man is a potential presidential candidate in 2012.
