Democracy in America

Ladies and gentleman, the man who is going to save us from the grim harvest of hair product that would be a Mitt Romney presidency, Mike Huckabee.

"Still, there is a new sense of possibility in the Huckabee campaign. It has been fueled in large part by evangelicals, including a politically active home-schooling population, dissatisfied with his better-financed competitors ... He is an ardent proponent of the “fair tax,” which would scrap the national income tax for a national sales tax."

I just wrote out a crack about how conservatism ought to be recategorized as brain damage, but I thought of a better joke -- the image of a generation of home-schooled historians, trying to make sense out of the bizarre political cleavages of our times, but unable to wrap their spelling-bee-winning brains around anything more complicated than Veggie Tales.

Remember. School only makes people stupid. And going to school with only your parents and seeing only a select few other home schooled kids teaches you all the lessons you learn at public school.

Don't you even think about knocking Governor Huckabee. The man is part of a rock band that calls itself "Capitol Offense."
Also, I'm pretty sure he wrote a self-help weight-loss tome entitled "Quit Digging Your Grave With a Knife and Fork."
I'll take a Baptist preacher with a whimsical sense of his place in this world over Romney or Giuliani any day of the week and twice on Sunday.

In terms of being anally violated at the polls on election day by the democratic candidate, I will definitely take him over Romney and Giuliani.

He does seem like a very nice guy, I'll give him that. I still don't think you should get to command the nuclear arsenal if you believe the earth was created in 6 days, however.
