Durwood Fincher, a former Hardaway High School teacher, now known as "Mr. Doubletalk," will be on "The Mike Huckabee Show" Saturday

Durwood Fincher, a former Hardaway High School teacher, who was dubbed "Mr. Doubletalk" by the late Allen Funt of "Candid Camera" fame, will be featured on Fox News' "The Mike Huckabee Show" at 8 p.m. Saturday. It will be repeated at 8 p.m. and 11 p.m. Sunday.

Huckabee's show is the top-rated weekend news shows, and Fincher will play a double-talking politician.

After Huckabee spoke to the Georgia Chamber of Commerce, Fincher gave him a copy of his biography, "Once You Step in Elephant Manure, You're in the Circus Forever." The biography, written by Macon Telegraph columnist Ed Grisamore, includes a DVD of Fincher's double-talk interviews.

Huckabee wrote Fincher a thank-you note that said, "I absolutely loved your material! I needed a good laugh today, and your DVD was just what the doctor ordered."

With three of Fincher's flights to New York City canceled in the past 24 hours, travel plans were iffy, but he's scheduled to be on a plane today, said his publicist.
