Mike Huckabee, who is considering running for president in 2016, offers a rare glimpse inside his head and it isn’t pretty. In a new book, he goes on a number of bizarre rants including calling rapper Jay Z a pimp for sexually “exploiting” his wife, Beyonce.

The musing and more are contained in his new book “God, Guns, Grits, and Gravy.”

Although it has yet to hit store shelves, USNews got a hold of a copy and has published some of his more sensational insights.

He also takes on everything from TSA agents at airports to same-sex marriage, which he ultimately sees leading to three-way marriages between a man, a bi-sexual partner and another man or woman. Does that seem possible?

While Huckabee’s views seem incredible, if not down-right laughable, you better take him seriously. He’s mulling a run for president after serving as Governor of Arkansas, a post once held by former President Bill Clinton before he became president.

But Huckabee is no Clinton. The former pastor’s views run from the far right to off-the-scale libertarian

Of the many ills plaguing the nation, pop culture is right at the top. But why Jay Z became a lightning rod for his self-righteousness is anyone’s guess.

Apparently, it has to do with Beyonce’s performance of “Drunk in Love” at the 2013 Grammy Awards. Jay Z was a featured performer.

Huckabee wrote:

My reaction: “Why? Beyoncé is incredibly talented—gifted, in fact. She has an exceptional set of pipes and can actually sing. She is a terrific dancer—without the explicit moves best left for the privacy of her bedroom. Jay Z is a very shrewd businessman, but I wonder: Does it occur to him that he is arguably crossing the line from husband to pimp by exploiting his wife as a sex object?

As if Beyonce doesn’t do anything without asking her husband’s permission. How would Huckabee know what goes on in their marital bed?

More likely, Huckabee is reacting because Jay Z is one of those dark-skinned African-Americans, while Beyonce is more a genteel honey-tone. So, the rapper must have some kind of pimp-like control over her.

Meanwhile, why Huckabee has a bone to pick with the TSA is anyone’s guess. But he devotes a whole chapter to it titled: “Bend Over and Take It Like a Prisoner!” (Like the rape analogy?)

Instead of searching everyone for guns before they board, Huckabee’s solution is probably to give everyone a gun. Then, let see a hijacker try to take over.

More likely, he sees a built-in Republican constituency among frequent flyers.

Fortunately, Huckabee is far more liberal on same-sex marriage than his potential GOP rival Rick Santorum. Vanity Fair notes that Santorum believes it will lead to marriages between humans and dogs. Huckabee only sees the possibility of three-way unions.

He writes:

“Shouldn’t a bisexual be able to have both a male and female spouse? Wouldn’t restricting that person access to both genders be denying the bisexual his or her marriage ‘equality?’

Because Huckabee veers more to rabid Libertarian than right-wing conservative, he also takes pot shots are far right groups that opposed him during his 2008 presidential campaign. He calls them “suicide bombers” in his book. Honest.
