Oh I will spam e-mail him til I get a response

I emailed Huckabee based on what he said, I am saddened by his distortion of Ron's views.

Formerly confused :)

Please Write the Tonight Show

Go to this website:

http://www.nbc.com/contact/general/?__status=1

You'll have to scroll down to the field labeled "Select Show", use the dropdown menu to choose "Tonight Show / Jay". Then send your message. Please be polite. It won't help our cause if you aren't. This was my message.

I'm a big fan of the show. I saw Mike Huckabee's recent appearance where he completely mischaracterized US Congressman Ron Paul's positions in a way that may be detrimental to his Presidential campaign. I think this was a cheap shot and very unfair. Would you please have Representative Paul on your show to give him the chance to set the record straight? He always provides a huge ratings boost to every show he's on. As a supporter of the show and a fan of Representative Paul, I would greatly appreciate this.

Thank You,

J.G.

My email to the show

Dear Show / Jay,
Love the show and watch frequently! I saw the bit that Huckabee gave about Ron Paul and didn't think it was very funny. I understand that it's just a comedy show but I felt slightly offended by Mike's assumptions about Paul's audience. We're actually a pretty intelligent crowd; we're just eager to be heard and understood so we can hopefully see some real change in our country. Please consider inviting Ron Paul on your show. It might be the most viewed clip in tonight show history given the obsessiveness of Paul's "grateful dead fans". Thanks for the time!

Freedom isn't free

Liberty is not free, It must be earned!

I emailed them

I think if enough of us email them, they will take notice.

I emailed NBC

Did you notice when you got the email confirming your email what it says???

"Since we cannot accept unsolicited scripts, show ideas, or other creative material, any such submission by email will be deleted without being read"

3 things

stand out to me that should be clarified.

That fact that Libertarian comes from the word LIBERTY, and that doesn't mean a "total free for all" do what you want type mentality. Who could be against liberty? It is what this country was founded on. It is the opposite of tyranny.

The fact that RP wants to LEAVE IT UP TO THE PEOPLE to decide whether they want to continue the failed war on drugs,(which has strengthened drug cartels, gangs, and violence across our nation) or look at some sensible alternatives that would undercut their market.

The fact that RP wants to STRENGTHEN the military who's morale is at an all time low,(record suicide rates) by bringing them out of this perpetual aggressive offensive war mode, and put them into a reasonable stronger stance of defense around our nation.

When I watched Ted Nugent on Huck's show the other day, talking about how "we need to kill all the cockroaches", as his audience was getting aroused, I thought of a couple of ways to describe them as well. I will refrain though.

Huckabee?

Man, F*ck-this-B! ;)

Of course Huckabee wasn't going to run, he's already fooled millions of Americans into believing that he's a conservative. If he was to run, people would actually start doing their research, he'd lose the election, he would have already needlessly cancelled his show, and he'd have to go back to selling snake-oil at some Sunday picnic in Suckersville, Arkansas.

He knows he's better off selling his endorsement to the highest bidder. (A strategy known as 'the Palin'.)

So why attack the Freedom movement? He's bitter that the Ron Paul crowd gave him a hard time when his campaign was paying lip-service to a lot of Dr. Paul's ideas, positions, and talking points without giving credit where credit was due. That and I'm sure Dr. Paul's comments which implied that a Huckabee presidency would be dressed up fascism didn't help too much either.

Who will Huckabee endorse? Who cares!

Wow, is the Huckster getting fat again?

I know the camera puts weight on you, but he looks like his next gig is going to be the Biggest Loser.

As I said in a previous post, Huckabee just dances to the tune of his puppeteers, Rupert Murdoch and his war-profiteering buddies in the armaments industries, which is why I do not believe Huckabee will ever be a friend to Ron Paul or his supporters.

Huckabee can't run for anything himself. All this even acting like he could have been a candidate is a sham. Huck's political career ended on 11/29/09.

Paul Campaign.......

......time to get on the Leno show yourself and defend the remarks. Leno was quite fair last time when Fox and their ilk were pulling the same crap......

There ya go again Golmer.

It's time to take off the gloves as far as Huckabuck is concerned. Anyone have the Tonight Show e-mail address?

See My Comment Above

It only takes a minute

I Just Posted Instructions and a Link

for how to write the show. Cheers.

What's The Problem?

As a gun owning "Deadhead" I fail to see the problem. Huckabee's soundbite logic is so weak to those of us that understand Dr. Paul's message. Unfortunately, this is the kind of B.S. the average Republican will focus on instead making an attempt to understand the principles of liberty for which Dr. Paul stands.

yeah

I felt like he was describing me... his discription of us i have no problem with... but his focus on how Ron wants to legalize drugs and prostitution is subterfuge to disenchant any R's on the fence about Ron - believe me, if ANYONE is following the race whatsoever, the main thing they know about Ron, these days, is the heroin and prostitution thing... that will change though when THE ECONOMY becomes an important issue again.

Dr. Paul is making them a little nervous

Even Jay Leno wants to inquire about Ron Paul. The GOP would obviously wish Dr. Paul to go away. They're all programed to "dismiss" our good doctor, and they're probably leaning on the media in a big way too. Just like last election. I think it will be ultra important for Ron Paul to show some strength early on in Iowa and New Hampshire. If he doesn't, the media will go along with the "dismiss" attitude. Mitt's toast, so they're rushing around trying to establish another "front runner", just like McCain.

Bad publicity is good publicity

Ron Paul was just thrown under the bus, but continuing to focus on the negative is not gonna help. The Leno audience is mostly a liberal audience- I imagine. It's an audience that likes the grateful dead. Within it, there's also a gun owner or two.

From my perspective, I've been hearing this word "libertarian" being thrown around more than ever. Libertarian is a household word these days. In these times, independent voters, like those who watch Leno, are so sick of both parties that they may be drawn to this "new" libertarian thing. They don't like Bush, and now they can't stand Obama.

Maybe the Huckster, in his ill will misrepresentation of Dr. Paul, just helped our cause. At this point, with events as they are, all I can say is: "In the end, Love always wins."

God Bless the movement.

In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot.

Ron Paul, Not A Republican?

After winning 11 elections to the congress of the US for the republican party, I am surprised to hear that Ron Paul is not a republican! That is quite a statement. Maybe we need to check out the other candidates running for the republican primary to see if they are republicans? Huckabee is a joke.

I do like some of his analogies though, like: When you through a rock over your neighbors fence, its only the hit dog that yelps. I think we just heard the hit dog yelping!

It's sort of weird how he has

It's sort of weird how he has so much hatred for liberty...

by the way, I never have and never will go to a gun show or a grateful dead concert. All this has done is confirmed beyond a shadow of a doubt, that Mike Huckabee is a giant douche- or maybe the offspring of a giant douche and a turd sandwich... that's the thing about huckabee, he has the dickish attitude of a douche, and the cultural aroma/appeal of a turd sandwich.

Mike Huckabee

is a prostitute, except he does not sell his body, he sold his soul. So Mike I guess you could say you are pro prostitution also, because you have whored out your country at the expense of it's countrymen.

Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom must. like men, undergo the fatigue of supporting it.-Thomas Paine

The R3volution requires action, not observation!!!!

Hukby deserves it,

thanks. Dr.Paul is a decent man and he would never stoop to the level of Huckabee. this joker is a liar who unjustly defames Ron Paul.

And, Hukby pretends to be a religious $cholar. Oh, how man succumbs to the religious confusion, when it$ priests take-over the house/pulpit or mike, after embrace of bankster wars these devils quote scripture.

Hear, hear...:)

Hear, hear...:)

yeah we like gun shows

At least we show ours! cant say as much for your son mike. He seems to like hiding his.

See mike your a failure ars a parent also. Ill take the greatful dead gang over your terrorist son any day. And he should be put in gitmo and never let out. I mean it is your belief right. Oh thats right you neocons make it up as you go. I see you do your religion the same way. Pretty pathetic isnt he.

who believes this propaganda other than the dumbed down?

But I guess there are tens of millions of those, so it's worth repeating the misrepresentation.

I hate Huckster.

His Christian "conservative" following is a testament to the grand ignorance of America. We deserve what we have.

Paul on Huckabee show?

I heard that the Dr. was supposed to be on the Huckabee show last weekend, but never saw or heard of it? Any news?

Also, out of kindness, please don't call Huckabee "Huck", it's my son's name and it makes me feel bad to see it used in that context ;-)

Success Face

Ole Huckster got that 'success face,' meaning, when a dude starts making the big bucks, he can afford to eat out every night and his face gets full and fat. So much for his weight loss initiative and that P90X endorsement deal.

Huckster: Preach Jesus without compromise...until a better paying gig comes along.

Huckster is...

1. A Neo-Christian
2. A blood thirsty war-monger http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S3EORyIoMsM
3. A fraudulent front man
4. Without real morals
5. More interested in making money than serving his country
6. A master of distraction and deception
7. Right out of the movie "V" - a front running government con-man
8. Right at home on Faux News
9. One of the "Ten Most Corrupt Politicians 2007"(Judicial Watch http://www.judicialwatch.org/washingtons-ten-most-wanted-cor...)
10. An instant case of nausea for me when he speaks.

He shouldn't even be allowed to say the name Ron Paul with his fork-tongue, sewer mouth.

Huckabee ranks with Obama, Pelosi, and Reid - Judicial Watch

Thanks Daddy, for the link to Judicial Watch's, "Ten Most Corrupt Politicians 2007".

Along with brief explanations, they list Mikey with Obama, H. Clinton, Pelosi, and Reid, in alphabetical order. No wonder neo-cons love him at Fox!

Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have the exact measure of the injustice and wrong which will be imposed on them. - Frederick Douglass

Another point

Is this yet another attempt by Fox News to marginalize Ron Paul. Huckabee never mentioned how Ron Paul never voted for a tax increase, returns his government salary, does not want to police the world, and wants to return to constitutional principles. He brings up the red meat issues for Fox viewers, legalizing heroin, prostitution, etc. Ron Paul does not think these are good behaviors but wants the goverment to not legistlate morality and regulate the activity.
Huckabee and Paul had a good relationship on the campaign trail in 2008. But now Huckabee is employed by Fox News and he must do his job and marginalize Ron Paul and his supporters by trying to make him look radical. Fox News will pick the GOP nominee.
