Sorry, Sarah. Mike Huckabee is taking the First Lady's side in your spat over healthy eating.
The ex-GOP presidential candidate and former fatty defended Michelle Obama after Sarah Palin threw a punch at the First Lady's anti-obesity campaign.
"With all due respect to my colleague and friend Sarah Palin, I think she's misunderstood what Michelle Obama is trying to do," Huckabee said during an interview on the "Curtis Sliwa Show" on Tuesday.

Huckabee, who currently hosts a show on Fox News, has faced a public battle with the bulge himself.
