Ok, so he's not a math guy, but GOP presidential contender Mike Huckabee proved on Saturday Night Live that he can take a ribbing as well as anyone. “Weekend Update” host Seth Meyers pointed out to Huck that even if he wins every remaining delegate, the candidate would still fall 200 short, and a nomination would be a "mathematical impossibility."

“I’m afraid you overlooked the all-important super delegates,” Huckabee said. When Meyers told him super delegates only voted for Democrats, the deflated candidate responded: “Uh-oh, that’s not good news.” Huckabee conceded he’s “more of a miracle guy” than a "math guy," but "when it’s time to go, I’ll know." The former governor then stayed seated as the audience applauded, apparently oblivious to cues to leave the stage. (Read more Mike Huckabee stories.)
