Yep, it's still funny.
Oh noes, conservative bigwig and noted libido talker-abouter Mike Huckabee has been chastised for his remarks on Democrats, Uncle Sugar, and libidos by official Republican manchild Reince Priebus. However will he go on?
[Priebus] told the crowd at the RNC's winter meeting that Republicans must be "very conscious of the tone and choice of words" in communicating GOP policies.

"The Daily Rundown" host Chuck Todd asked the RNC chairman to clarify if those statements rebuked Huckabee.

"Sure. Yes, I was," Priebus said. "And the reason is that, you know, you have to accept the political world we live in, in the sense that you cannot offer up words like libido -- wherever that came from -- you don't offer up these sorts of, you know, lobs and set up passes and serves that allow the Democrats to spike the ball."

Huckabee may be a movement bigwig, in the sense that he has a radio show now and all conservatives who are anybody have their own radio shows, but it's a little sad that even he has to be reminded that maybe talking about womenfolk and their libido in front of the television cameras is not going to work out for you. It's sadder still when Reince Freaking Priebus has to tell you this.

Less clear, however, is where Reince stands on talking about "Uncle Sugar." We should probably ask him. We should probably ask him many, many times, in fact, and perhaps the party ought to have a whole session at their next how to talk to women event on the words libido and Uncle Sugar, so as to really explore this whole genre of conservative thought.

As long as we can televise it, of course.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
