What The Huckabee: Leave Natalie Portman’s Baby Alone

What reeks of Dan Quayle slamming Murphy Brown for her show's lack of family values? Mike Huckabee, of course. The likely 2010 Repubican presidential nominee took on “Natalie Portman or some other Hollywood starlet” on The Michael Medved radio show and said that "it's unfortunate that we glorify and glamorize the idea of having children out of wedlock." Portman, who is engaged to Benjamin Millepied, the father of her child, is nothing short of an accomplished actress, academic, spokesperson, and outspoken celebrity. The only thing she’s guilty of glamorizing is a beautiful plum Rodarte dress, and if we have any advice for Mr. Huckabee, it’s this: Leave Natalie and Ben’s unborn child alone, and try picking on someone your own size.
