Did you know that a woman's "uncontrollable" sex drive is directly linked to the government providing them with free birth control? Fox talk show host and former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee (or should we say, Doctor Mike Huckabee), seems to think so. Speaking at the Republican National Meeting about the new healthcare law that requires many insurance plans to cover birth control, Huckabee made some insinuating comments, including that the Democratic party's attempt to provide contraception to women was insulting, according to The Daily Mail UK. Here are his comments below (note: Huckabee refers to President Obama as "Uncle Sugar").
"If Democrats want to insult women by making them believe that they are helpless without Uncle Sugar coming in and providing for them a prescription each month for birth control because they cannot control their libido or their reproductive system without the help of the government, then so be it," he said. "Let us take this discussion all across America because women are far more than the Democrats have played them to be."
Keep in mind Mike Huckabee was trying to help re-brand the Republican party as female-friendly at the meeting. We think he failed.
And don't worry Mike, my libido has completely taken a nosedive after listening to your idiotic comments — you are my birth control now.
