It's a really slow nonnews day in Tattle when we lead with an item involving . Huckabee, the diet yo-yo-ing former Arkansas governor who has as much chance to be president as Tattle does, tends not to make our radar. But he did make the radar of RadarOnline.com. Huckabee, one of leading morality voices in the GOP, was recently photographed with a prostitute in Carson City, Nev., during a campaign stop. Huckabee was on his way to the Venetian in Las Vegas for the last Republican debate.

No Bey for Obama girls! Malia and Sasha Obama 's brains will rot - and their souls will be claimed by Mephistopheles - if they continue listening to Beyoncé 's devil music. That's the gist of a sermon delivered by the nation's conscience Mike Huckabee , via People mag. Yes, it's election season, and Huckabee, the former Arkansas governor who many say is poised to run for the White House in '16, is making points with his GOP base by sizing up the White House's morals - and finding them wanting.

REPUBLICAN presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee is a secret member of Beyonce's Bey Hive. I have no proof, other than that every time he's on TV lately, the former governor of Arkansas invokes the superstar's name. To my ears, it sounds as if he's a little bit "Drunk in Love. " Not that we can blame him. By riding Beyonce's sequined skirt-tail, Huckabee's getting much-needed traction and scoring invites to programs such as ABC's "The View," where he shared a stage last week with former Destiny's Child member Michelle Williams.

Ammon Bundy and the other armed militants occupying a federal facility at a wildlife refuge in Oregon have a beef with the administration - the Teddy Roosevelt administration. "It has been provided for us to be able to come together and unite in making a hard stand against this overreach, this taking of the people's land and resources," proclaimed Bundy, son of Cliven Bundy, the Nevada rancher who led a similar armed rebellion against the government two years ago. "If we do not make a hard stand, then we will be in a position where we won't be able to as a people.

After making remarks in which he directly equated homosexuality with bestiality, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee was attacked at the San Francisco Zoo by a gay tiger. Huckabee had scheduled a campaign stop at the zoo, where he made his controversial remarks about homosexuality and bestiality, not realizing that he was standing within earshot of a Bengal tiger with a homosexual lifestyle. According to onlooker Tracy Klujian, 27, "the way that tiger started growling during the speech, you could tell that it felt like it was being taunted.

BLOOMFIELD, Iowa - Rick Perry took the microphone at a church here and lashed out at Washington elites whom he accused of consolidating power there in a "total affront to our constitution. " Perry, a former Air Force pilot, lamented the way the country had treated its veterans. As a former longtime governor of Texas, he said, "I wrote a letter a week to a mom or a dad, to a wife, to a loved one, that had lost an individual in the war against terror. We owe those individuals so much.

CLEVELAND - Not to go all H.L. Mencken on you right off the bat, but the Bard of Baltimore pretty much nailed political conventions when writing about a Republican one held here in 1924. He wrote that the convention will open with a windy speech by "some dreadful mountebank" and then "another mountebank will repeat the same rubbish in other words. " I'm not totally prejudging the Republican National Convention (OK, maybe a little), and Lord knows Democrats next week also will talk tons of trash, but some things haven't much changed in 92 years - or in 80 years.

MARSHALLTOWN, Iowa - Once they were winners. Now, in some respects, they are the forgotten men. The winners of the last two Iowa Republican caucuses - Rick Santorum in 2012 and Mike Huckabee in 2008 - are running again this year. They soldier on, visiting evangelical churches, Pizza Ranches, coffee shops, senior centers, and house parties, though the polling numbers suggest they are long shots. Even for an electoral process with its share of quirks, no past winners have ever faced off like this.

Gov. Christie on Tuesday sought to make the case that he was the best choice in the GOP presidential field to defeat Hillary Rodham Clinton, while he also swatted back attacks that he was a "big government Republican" who wouldn't rein in spending. Appearing in the so-called undercard debate, the New Jersey governor all but ignored an onslaught of criticism leveled by Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, instead deciding to answer almost every question with warnings about a potential Clinton presidency.

How appropriate that the theme from the third Rocky movie, "Eye of the Tiger," was played as the Kentucky clerk who was jailed for refusing to issue marriage licenses to gays was released Tuesday. It was perfect for the sparring for attention at the scene by Republican presidential candidates Ted Cruz and Mike Huckabee. Both politicians hope to corral the evangelical Christian vote, which has been a mainstay for Republican political success since the 1980s. And no one at the moment better symbolizes the antigay positions of fundamentalist Christians than Kim Davis, the clerk who spent five days in jail for ignoring a judge's court order.

RECENTLY, my son was happily reciting the names of U.S. presidents as he looked at their photographs. One thing that immediately stuck out to me, besides Barack Obama being the only black president, was that nearly all former presidents were rather on the svelte side. That got me thinking: Can the president be fat? Although we may have overcome race in the White House, I'm not so sure we have overcome obesity. There have been a handful of chubby presidents, but it appears that William Taft, the 27th president, was by far the most portly, weighing in at 300-plus pounds.
