(Newser) – 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.
