Okay, I'm Done. I Don't Heart Huckabee
By: Mark W Adams


Yeah, I admit. It was a casual flirtation. Nothing more serious than checking out a pretty girl's legs then averting your eyes. I'm over it now.

Face it. Huck is irritating ...

Gomer Pyle is all testy, because people have the gall to keep asking him about his religious beliefs all the time:

[Huckabee] bristled Tuesday when asked if creationism should be taught in public schools.

Huckabee — who raised his hand at a debate last May when asked which candidates disbelieved the theory of evolution — asked this time why there is such a fascination with his beliefs.
Because you want to legislate them, dipshit. That makes them kind of a need-to-know issue for the rest of us.
The former Arkansas governor pointed out he has advocated for broad public school course lists that include the creative arts and math and science. Why, then, he asked, is evolution such a fascination?
... and downright ignorant ...
Huckabee sat down last night with reporters, and it turns out he still hadn't heard about the National Intelligence Estimate showing that Iran suspended its nuclear weapons program in 2003. Not only that, but Huckabee continued speaking about Iran in terms of them being about to acquire nuclear weapons, even after reporter David Paul Kuhn summarized the official findings for him.

"I don't know where the intelligence is coming from that says they have suspended the program or how credible that is versus the view that they actually are expanding it ..." Huckabee said. "And I've heard, the last two weeks, supposed reports that they are accelerating it and it could be having a reactor in a much shorter period of time than originally been thought."

Sorry, I'm not buying the excuse that he can't afford advisers to keep him up to date (ie. tell him what to parrot) the way other candidates can. You don't need a death harbinger like Norm Podhoretz to feed you talking points when a story is this big -- and you hadn't even heard about it. Come on, really? It's everywhere. Pick up a paper. Tell the Mrs. to switch to CNN (or even FOX) between Oprah and The View so she can keep you from looking the fool. Oy!

There was always something fishy about the guy literally coming out of nowhere. He was somebody's (Rudy's) stalking horse, and I think his services are no longer required.

It really is pretty obvious when you think about it. The guy is a Republican after all. It was never going to work out between us. The customary fee is on the bedside table. Thanks for the hummer, Hucky.

Please Mike, don't cry. We can still be friends. Really. It's me, not you. You'll find someone new to cuddle with. There are a lot of clueless Ron Paul supporters out there who will need a hug soon. I'm just not ready to commit . . .

. . . to a stupidly delusional goofball.

He appears to be pious, self-confident, funny, relaxed and -- unlike Bush -- articulate. No wonder he's getting a second look.

What we're seeing with that second look is that he's a crackpot creationist and (worse for the Republicans) soft on immigration and taxes.

In other words, the worst of all possible worlds.

Now he's got to deal with his own personal Willie Horton moment.

P.S. Is he raising any kind of money?
