Republican candidate Mitt Romney‘s subtle ploy to identify with Southerners by stopping for lunch at Kentucky Fried Chicken this weekend went off the rails when he was spotted gingerly pulling the skin off his chicken. And Son of the South cum faltering presidential candidate Mike Huckabee quickly pounced on the gaffe, telling reporters that “any Southerner knows that if you’re not gonna eat the skin, don’t bother with calling it fried chicken,” and declaring that Romney’s skin-pulling “means I’m going to win Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee, Arkansas, Oklahoma, all these great Southern states that understand that the best part of fried chicken is the skin.”
