His state is nearly $17 billion in debt, and the State Assembly has just declared the local use of pornography to be a “public health crisis,” but dissatisfaction with bundled triple-play services apparently weighed most heavily on the mind of Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee on Monday morning.
Taking to the preferred transom of the conservative ruling class, Huckabee tweeted, “Is @comcast the United AL version of cable/internet/phone? Has anyone else had DEPLORABLE dealings with @comcast? #tincans&string.”
Next, with U.S. relations with North Korea now playing out, as terrifyingly described by The New York Times, as a “slow-motion Cuban Missile Crisis,” Huckabee followed up with, “@comcast is now operated by the N. Korean missile launch team. Epic failure!”
He kept going: “@comcast customer service? Faster than cold molasses pouring out of pinhole; makes gov't look efficient; as fun to deal with as root canal.”
Finally, after also comparing Comcast to organized crime, Huckabee wrapped up the Twitter salvo with what is perhaps a conservative lawmakers ultimate denigration: “How bad is @comcast service? I'd rather have Obama back as President than have Comcast.”
Six minutes after Huckabees’ final tweet, the “ComcastCares” social media team sprung into action, tweeting, “@GovMikeHuckabee I'd be happy to assist with your account concerns. Please send me a DM with your address or phone # to get started. - SL”
Five hours later, Huckabee's service issues—which were not specifically defined—were addressed.
The governor took one last shot: “@comcast came late today-fixed the stuff-thanks! They made appt 3 wks ago and didn't show and didn't care...until the "Twit" hit the fan!”
