MADONNA's husband GUY RITCHIE has fired back at American politician MIKE HUCKABEE for poking fun at his wife during a U.S. Republican National Convention speech.
Huckabee, who was at one point among those fighting Senator John MCCain for the party's presidential candidacy, took aim at Madonna while addressing tabloid stories about Alaskan governor Sarah Palin and her pregnant teenage daughter on Wednesday (03Sep08).
Palin was named MCCain's running mate last week (ends29Sep08) just days before details of her 17-year-old daughter's pregnancy was revealed - leading to a media frenzy.
Conservative Huckabee addressed the fuss, stating, "The reporting of the past few days have proven tackier than a costume change at a Madonna concert."
Ritchie has been left defending his touring wife at the Toronto Film Festival in Canada - and he's having a laugh at Huckabee's expense.
He says, "Someone had to tell me who Mike Huckabee was. I gather he had some disparaging remarks to make about my wife... and I really like her costume changes."
