Yes, Mike Huckabee said he was "troubled" by Natalie Portman's pregnancy this week.

And, yes, he accused the Oscar winner of boasting about her unmarried, expecting state; and, yes, he said the actress is setting a "distorted image" for girls across the country.

But the likely 2012 Presidential nominee has an explanation for these seemingly random, misguided allegations: it's the fault of the damn mainstream media!

  • Pregnant Natalie Portman

How dare Natalie Portman glamorize pregnancy by... being pregnant!

"These people should read my book and they would know what I said instead of what some left-wing partisans are attempting to put forth," the politician said in a statement.  "I do appreciate the attention to the book as it is sparking interest in it dramatically."

Hey, any way we can help, you hypocritical, pandering, judgmental jackass.

Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee has made it clear: he has an issue with unmarried, unashamed, wealthy women who tell the world about their pregnancy.

It's clear to whom he's referring, right? Incredibly, no.

The likely 2012 Presidential candidate went on Michael Medved's radio show Monday and somehow called out Natalie Portman, not a certain daughter of a certain reality star who has raked in seven figures by posing on tabloid covers with her child.

2011 Oscar Winner

"People see a Natalie Portman who boasts*, 'We're not married but we're having these children and they're doing just fine," Huckabee said. "I think it gives a distorted image. It's unfortunate that we glorify and glamorize the idea of out-of-wedlock children."

(*Note: Portman has never said this. She has, however, had the gall to appear on stage with a baby bump and tell the world she loves her fiancee, Benjamin Millepied.)

One is a sexy Hollywood starlet.

The other is an aging actor who, according to the Internet, once sold his soul to the devil in exchange for unparalleled martial arts skills, then - in an ironic twist - roundhouse kicked the devil in the face and took his soul back.

So what do Scarlett Johansson and Chuck Norris have in common?

They both backed winners in Thursday's Iowa caucuses. Yes, with a little help from their celebrity fans, Democrat Barack Obama and Republican Mike Huckabee emerged victorious in Iowa's first-in-the-nation vote.

While Chuck Norris, 67, stumped for Mike Huckabee in December and was with him last night, Johansson, 23, was by Obama's side, speaking at a rally for high school and college-aged "Barack Stars" in Coralville, Iowa, this week.

Scarlett Johansson urged younger Democrats in Iowa to help deliver a Barack Obama victory, and they obliged as the Illinois senator won the caucus.

"She actually seemed a little shy when she started speaking," audience member Jason Millsap said. "But she warmed up to the crowd ... It was pretty exciting and inspiring to see someone as big as her come and talk to her peers."

"[Scarlett Johansson] was asked a question as to why she chose to support Barack Obama and answered it very well, in my opinion," added high schooler and caucus goer Peter Caroll. "She [explained] how she did research him and found Obama to be [passionate about] most of the issues she deemed important."

Young voters, like Johansson and her fellow Barack Stars, may have been a key to Barack Obama's victory over John Edwards and Hillary Clinton. Obama took an estimated 57 percent of the under-30 vote, according to CNN.

Everyone has an opinion on this week's huge celebrity news: the Jamie Lynn Spears pregnant story. It's even spilled over into the presidential campaign.

Republican presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee, a former Baptist minister and the former governor of Arkansas, recently picked up the endorsement of Chuck Norris. Now he's entered the fray on the Jamie Lynn Spears situation.

And while the candidate has been notably caught off-guard by breaking news in recent weeks, he passed this test of pop culture with flying colors.

News of Britney Spears' younger sister's pregnancy broke early this week and is in all the tabloids, including OK! Magazine. On the campaign trail in Iowa, Mike Huckabee was asked how he felt about - what else - pregnant Jamie Lynn.

Even White House hopeful Mike Huckabee is weighing in on Jamie Lynn.

While Huckabee's answer may have fit any out-of-wedlock teenager in the same situation as the younger Spears, the candidate commented with confidence:

"In my mind it's a tragedy when a 16-year-old who is not really prepared for all the responsibilities of adult life is going to be now faced with all of the many responsibilities of honest-to-goodness adult life," he told CBS News.

"Apparently, she's going to have the child and I think that is the right decision, a good decision, and I respect that and appreciate it," Mike Huckabee continued. "I hope it is not an encouragement to other 16-year-olds who think that is the best course of action. But at the same time I'm not going to condemn her."

"There'll be plenty of people in line to do that and I always look for the shortest lines. I just hope that she will make another right decision and that's to give that child all the love and kindness and care that she can."

What do you think? Should Jamie Lynn Spears keep the baby?

We know who's leading in the polls (or at least we did, two hours ago when we last checked), but which presidential candidates dominate the celebrity gossip world? Who would be the next president if online searches were votes?

In a race that mirrors recent Iowa and New Hampshire polling data, Barack Obama has narrowly edged out fellow Democratic senator Hillary Rodham Clinton as the top-searched presidential hopeful of 2007 across the Internets.

Obama's slight victory over Hillary Clinton may be thanks to a relative unknown status at the beginning of the year, as well as his huge support from many females - ranging from hot and nude (Amber Lee Ettinger) to all-powerful (Oprah).

If celebrity and online buzz were votes, Barack Obama would be president!

Ron Paul (R) came from nowhere to claim the #3 spot. While his numbers are about half of Clinton and Obama for the year, he took a web lead in November.

John Edwards (D) didn't lag too far behind at #4, while Fred Thompson's late entry, TV credentials and spouse helped his online attention surge above his fellow GOPers Mitt Romney (R), Rudy Giuliani (R) and John McCain at #5.

Expect the candidates' celebrity gossip buzz to change in 2008 - as searches already have for Mike Huckabee (R), thanks in part to a new sidekick.

The Top Searched Presidential Candidates in 2007:

  1. Barack Obama (D)
  2. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D)
  3. Ron Paul (R)
  4. John Edwards (D)
  5. Fred Thompson (R)
  6. Mitt Romney (R)
  7. John McCain (R)
  8. Rudy Giuliani (R)

Oprah Winfrey loves Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama. So do countless former stars of The OC and other celebrities from film and TV.

Well, another upstart political contender has gotten his own boost of star power - from an actor and martial arts master whose chief export is pain.

Governor Mike Huckabee, a 2008 Republican presidential candidate, has made a hilarious campaign ad with Chuck Norris called HuckChuckFacts.

In it, Mike Huckabee refers to several "Chuck Norris facts" - the tall tales about Norris that have become an Internet phenomenon in recent years - while Norris tells real facts about the former Arkansas Governor and his plans for America.
