Couric and Huckabee

Strange but true: Even after leaving office this summer well before her term as Alaska’s governor was over, Sarah Palin’s “executive experience” still strikes Mike Huckabee as valid evidence of leadership that would put her above Barack Obama in the former Arkansas governor’s estimation, were he to be faced with those two choices at the polls. Here, Huckabee sits down with Palin’s onetime newsy nemesis, Katie Couric, for a chat about Palin’s political future.  —KA

Re: Purple Girl

Your comment: “Well golly gee yeah, they have seats next to each other on the Rapture bus too. She’ll be bringin some wolf foreleg stew and he’ll bring his banjo.”

Good one.  Sadly, this isn’t hard for me to imagine.  It makes perfect sense that Huckabee thinks Palin has “executive experience”, I think so too….. the difference must be in our interpretation of “executive experience”.

Of course, Huckabee would vote for magic underware guy as well as pricey thong lady.  Those christian repubs…. what IS their preoccupation with intimate apparel.

How do you like the idea of having Glen Beck as Sarah’s V.P. Now that’s a partnership made in hell.

Manson liked Hitlers ideas too. So what.
And Realistically they are all spewing basically the same shit.Nothing essentially different than the Muslim extremeists. In fact they have the same recruitment slogan “Guns and God”.
Jihad/ Holy War same shit different century. Pure Unadulterated Idol worship.
As their philosophies clearly state - neither are Monotheists. But at this point neither really are the Jews (who’s Star is that?)
What I find intriguing is that ‘Yeweh’ is cool with ‘Christians’ but ‘Allah’ makes them crazy.
You can’t claim to be of a monothesitic religion and worship any one else. Or fear someone/thing else for that matter. Because they are irrelevant, all things are under the One and Only One’s control. There is no ‘son’ (sun) god, nor a god of the underworld, unless they are also under the command of the Almighty.
The Sequence and the repetativeness of the first three Commandments must mean they are the top Rules. When in doubt refer to commandments 1-3 in most versions.There is No (*)following any of them excluding sons, or prophets from out ranking ‘Him’.
So for True Monotheists, the Commandments outranks everything else that comes after it. Not the other way around.K.I.S.S.
