More Huckwit*

Pharyngula expands on Fixer's post:

Huckabee is a raving lunatic


We have a candidate who openly wants to make the US a religious state, and he's the frontrunner on the Republican side. There are a large number of people who want this demented fuckwit to run the country. And the pundits of the news media are sucking their thumbs and watching; here's what one commentator had to say:

Geist further noted of Huckabee that if "someone without his charm," said that, "he'd be dismissed as a crackpot, but he's Mike Huckabee and he's basically the front-runner."

Popularity excuses all affronts, I guess. Did your mother ever ask you, "If your friends jumped off a cliff, would you?"

I'm feeling a bit like I'm watching a whole country merrily running towards that cliff right now.

Note to lemmings: Flying's fun, and the fall won't hurt you. It's the sudden stop at the end, such as if we get this as-bad-as-the-half-wit-we-got-now-only-different clown as the next resident of the White House. .

*With a name like Huckabee, it's almost too easy. Thank you, Lord.
