What White House? Huckabee Digs Fox News

Posted on Nov 30, 2009

Former presidential candidate Mike Huckabee could be a contender in 2012, but he has discovered that rolling out of bed once a week to tell yuck-yucks and play bass on his Fox News show is a lot more fun than glad-handing and fundraising 18 hours a day.

In his own words, “this Fox gig I got right now” is “really really wonderful.” But Huckabee also says he might consider running if the conditions are right (i.e. fundraising) and if the GOP establishment is willing to get behind him.  —PZS

What’s difference will one more bull-shiter on Fox News make, and you have to admit Huckabee is a very good bull-shitter.

As I understand it, Hucky DID pardon the recent cop-killer, back when he was Governor. I believe I read that this happened eight years ago. He has committed a major Dukakis that will follow him to his next Presidential election effort. This will be held as an example of his excellent judgement. We haven’t heard the last of this, not by a long shot, unless the Democrats still haven’t learned a damn thing about campaigning. This precise error was part of what cost Michael Dukakis the race for President, along with being made of wood.

The constitutional separation of church & state should disqualify Huckabee and other capitol hill crusaders from holding public office. And is there any truth that Huckabee pardoned Maurice Clemmons, the cop executioner.

To Huckabee’s credit, he did cut his weight by 100 lbs.

But as a practical wanabee opulent opportunist his lust
for power & money is larger than ever, & he will go for
the best deal or offer.

Huckabee is just another American Taliban.  He just wants power and is willing to exploit the ignorance and fears of others to achieve it.  It would be interesting to measure the average I.Q. of Fox News viewers.  I would guess it is about 80.

Litmus test of Religious Ideology
Are you a believer in St Johns Revelations?
Are you an adherent to an adversarial Duelistic ideology- pitting ‘good against evil’.
Do you think that only through force the ‘evil’ can be defeated- whether in the realm of the physical or metaphysical?
Do you a ‘Cleansing’ catastropic event will occur where those faithful to one side are spared, while all other parish in angish?
Do you seek to facilitate that Sorting processes? Relish the idea of vindication? Find the Concept ‘Raptureous’.
Then I don’t Give a shit what symbol you claim, your freak flag tells the Truth.
You are not a Monotheist. You don’t believe in One and Only One. You are a Duelist who heeds the opposition as much as a Force to be reckoned with, by Humanity and the other Contender.
“Gods Will” nor “Under God” have an (*)‘except when under the influence of the Satan.’
Reason Monotheism was such an advatageous philosphy for Man is the fact it obliterated the concept of conflict between deities.
And as such these folks are not practicing True Christianity in the manner taught by Christ. He never said Worship me instead of The One True God. he never even claimed divinity “So You Say”. He never took up arms, nor recruited Soldiers or mounted Armies. He not only embraced the outcast and downtrodden, he was their champion.
Huckabee is nothing more than an End of Dayer cloaked within the guise of Christianity, no different than those who seek a ‘Final Battle’ under Islam. Neither are Monotheists.
Not an issue as long as you don’t create an ‘enemy’ where one does not exist and make the rest of Us subject to the attacks or fall out.
Huckabee fails the fundemental decree of Separation of Church and State.In fact epitomizes exactly why our Founders made it a cornerstone of our Democracy.
