...I caught myself thinking: Hey, this guy doesn't seem like a total dickhead. I can almost see him as president. . . .
Then I woke up and did some homework that changed my mind. But I confess: It took a little while. Huckabee is that good.
But Huckabee is also something else: full-blown nuts, a Christian goofball of the highest order. He believes the Earth may be only 6,000 years old, angrily rejects the evidence that human beings evolved from "primates" and thinks America wouldn't need so much Mexican labor if we allowed every aborted fetus to grow up and enter the workforce. To top it off, Huckabee also left behind a record of ethical missteps in the swamp of Arkansas politics that make Whitewater seem like a jaywalking ticket.
All of which begs the question: If this religious zealot's rise represents the end of corporate dominance of the Republican Party, is that a good thing? Or is the real thing even worse than the fraud?
Phony christians v. a batshit crazy fundie zealot who's convinced he's a real one? As President? Give me the phony every time!
