Mike Huckabee’s rapidly becoming the most written about politician. As we predicted, the Republican presidential candidate’s meteoric rise opens him up to all sorts of criticism, analysis and examination.
The Advocate gets in on the fun with a comprehensive look at the Southern Baptist’s historically anti-gay stands. Taking a closer look, however, and Huckabee may not be as conservative as he’d like voters to believe. Professor Jay Barth tells Bernice Yeung that while Huckabee supported anti-gay marriage legislation, he did not lead the charge:
He now really does tout the fact that he was leading the charge for a marriage amendment for Arkansas, but that’s just not accurate. The record indicates he supported it, but he was not leading the charge. Those who were leading the charge were those who were actually saying that Huckabee was not conservative enough; it was a moment of interparty politics.
Mitt Romney should put that on a postcard and mail it around Iowa. That’ll thin out Huckabee’s ranks a little – and further split the Grand Old Party.
Ugggh, I’m tired of hearing about Huckabee all over the place. He’ll probably win Iowa, he won’t do well in New Hampshire. I just wish I didn’t have to hear about him all over the place. I’m voting Republican in the primaries to try to stave off worst case scenarios like this guy from getting on the main ballot.
(fanning myself like Scarlett O’Hara) Mah, mah… all this attention on lil’ old ME! Goodness, everybody tryin’ to prove they hate me most! Now, boys… don’t hurt yourselves fightin’ over me.
BOY SCOUTS KILL DOG!
ACTION NEEDED: DEMAND INVESTIGATION
(Miller County, Arkansas) Two boy scout counselors, 17 year old Clayton Frady and 18 year old David litickabee, the son of Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, have admitted to catching a stray dog during their summer session at Camp Pioneer in Hatfield, AR, and hanging the dog by his neck, slitting his throat and stoning him to death.
Camp officials, who did not report the crime to law enforcement officials, have admitted that the act did occur and have fired the boys from their positions. However, no charges have been filed against the young men.
Arkansas State Police conducted a perfunctory investigation, but did not attempt to locate witnesses to the crime.
