Superman renounced his U.S. citizenship in the 900th issue of his comic, and Mike Huckabee was not pleased. The former governor believes this comic book is part of "a bigger trend of Americans apologizing for being Americans." DC issued a statement clarifying the move, pointing out that while Superman has shifted to a "global focus" in his fight against injustice, "he remains ... committed to his adopted home and his roots as a Kansas farm boy from Smallville." Huckabee wasn't buying it. He went on to state his fear that our country is in danger of becoming "a great big stewpot of idiocy where we forgot we are the greatest country on Earth." Yes, this tirade was inspired by a comic book.
