Did you know that Beyoncé can win a debate without even showing up? She proved this last night when her latest detractor, Mike Huckabee, went on The Daily Show to tell Jon Stewart why she is ruining America and instead reminded us that he's an irrelevant, out-of-touch idiot whose arguments are made of garbage. Another well-deserved W, Bey.


"Beyoncé is such a mega-talent. She can do anything. She doesn't have to be vulgar in order to set the trend," Huckabee began, continuing by snatching random buzz words out of the air. "...Do you know any parent who has a daughter who says, 'Honey, if you make really good grades, someday when you're 12 or 13 we'll get you your own stripper pole?'"

"You're diminishing Beyoncé in a way that's truly outrageous," Stewart replied, voicing a nation's collective eye roll.

Stewart then aired a clip of Huckabee playing bass during a live performance of "Cat Scratch Fever," a song that's widely considered to be about catching syphilis from promiscuous sex, with Ted Nugent.

"Do you see my point? You excuse that type of crudeness because you agree with his stance on firearms. You don't approve of Beyoncé because she seems alien to you... You can't single out a corrosive culture and ignore the one that you live in because you're used to it," Stewart concluded.

Look, I know we don't need to hear what Huckabee has to say about, well, anything, but can we please make him hang around for a bit to debate Senior Beyoncé correspondent Jessica Williams? Just for fun?

It's not even just that these are two examples of equally corrosive cultures. One of these people sings songs about contracting STIs and wanting to have sex with minors. The other, at least for the most part, sings songs about consensual relationships between adults that don't harm their participants beyond possibly finding everything they own in a box to the left.
