Watch: Huckabee Laughs Off HRC Assertion That He's Inappropriately Obsessed with Gay Sex

Huckabee

Mike Huckabee appeared on FOX News Sunday yesterday where he was asked about his use of the term "ick factor" in referencing gay marriage

Chris Wallace presented Huckabee with a quote from Human Rights Campaign VP Fred Sainz.

Said Sainz: Ick is being fired from a job, being the victim of a hate crime or being bullied at school simply because you are lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender. And ick is certainly an appropriate way to describe Mr. Huckabee’s mind going to sex when all that we are asking for is our equality. Ick indeed.” 

Huckabee repeated his defense that he wasn't the first to use the term.

  1. I'm sorry I don't see the relevance of whether anyone else has called gay relationships "icky" or not. What the issue is is how Huckabee used it and what he meant by it.

  4. I agree with Keith... was thinking the same thing... somehow he heard this after reading a gay magazine... and repeated it. Either he is a) a closet gay (I hope not) b)fascinated with gay sex (doubtful) c) enjoys reading gay magazines for the articles (again with his views doubtful) or d) trying to cover his ass after making a horrible comment that shows his true beliefs... I think I'm going with D

  6. Reno, are you Mike Huckabee's "call boy" or are you his "rent boy"? Rent boys are popular these days.

    @JAMES BROWN, great idea! Someone with Twitter should start trending that moniker.

  9. He's a crass political whore. At least Sarah Palin believes what she says if she herself can understand what it is she says.

    This guy is a terrible man who'll say anything to stay in the public eye. A true panderer.

    Ick!

  10. well how long before we find has a baggage handler or somebody to preach to or any of the other lame excuses the homophobic,self loathing repuks use to cover their own homosexuality. i for one wish they were straight because it hurts to seee people who hate themselves so much as to project their hate on everybody. hey icky remember cameras are everywhere. you will get caught
    probably with your pants down or at least your zipper open.

  11. Why has nobody challenged him about what the "ick" factor really means? It's about that icky feeling heterosexuals get when they think about man on man sex (oh, and when their grandparents doing it), and every other reason they give is irrational and unscientific, because it's based just on an emotional response. Not a good reason to deny someone their rights. In short,

    Ick factor = bigotry
