Huckabee: "We Would Fry Squirrels in a Popcorn Popper"

Huckabee on MSNBC:

"South Carolina's a great place for me. I mean, I know how to eat grits and speak the language. We even know how to talk about eating fried squirrel and stuff like that, so we're on the same wavelength."
"Mika, I bet you never did this," Huckabee went on, addressing Mika Brzezinski. "When I was in college, we used to take a popcorn popper, because that was the only thing they would let us use in the dorm, and we would fry squirrels in a popcorn popper in the dorm room."

My sure the Democrats are praying for this man to become the GOP nominee...

Update: This shouldn't come as a surprise.
