Presidential Candidate Cooked Squirrels in a Popcorn Popper?

A New York Times opinion piece is making the rounds on squirrel blogs this week about ex-Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee. The essay pokes fun at Mike’s full embrace of his redneck roots, and one passage in particular has squirrel enthusiasts atwitter. Yes, it sounds horrible, but I know my share of rednecks and they don’t regularly take part in this sort of activity:

“Huckabee revels in the class war. He’s Two-Buck Huck, and darn proud of it. He likes nothing better than playing the Hick from Hope. He and his wife lived in a trailer for a while, he points out. His son killed a dog one summer, “a mangy dog” at that, as Huckabee explained to the befuddled national press corps. He said he used to eat squirrels, cooking them up in his popcorn popper. Ewwwwhhh!”
