Evangelical Idiots Need a New Constitution!

Today's politics are all about understanding what your particular constituency specifically wants to hear. Once that has been established, the knowledge is formulated and then exploited to best serve the candidate. All politicians base their campaign strategy on that fact in order to get the most bang for their buck. Whereas I'm down with Hillary Clinton pounding my senses into submission by repeatedly claiming she has 35 years of experience doing God knows what, and how she'll use that experience to lead us around like lost sheep from day one as a result. I'm equally aware John Edwards comes from a family of mill workers. I seem to have heard along the way that Rudy Giuliani has some connection to September 11th. John McCain is a former POW and current elderly maverick. Fred Thompson is an actor thereby making him the sequel to Ronald Reagan. Willard "Mitt" Romney is whatever you want him to be at any specific moment in time. But my favorite serial suckhole hands down is Mike Huckabee.

The "Huckster" announced earlier this week in Michigan to a cheering throng of evangelical sheep on their way to the slaughterhouse, that the Huckabee Administration will push, among other things, that we change the Constitution. The Baptist Brainiac believes "it's a lot easier to change the constitution than it would be to change the word of the living God, and that's what we need to do is to amend the Constitution so it's in God's standards rather than try to change God's standards," Huckabee actually said this while referring to the need for a constitutional human life amendment and an amendment defining marriage as between a man and a woman. Huckabee often refers to the need to amend the constitution on these grounds, but he has never so specifically called for the Constitution to be brought within "God's standards," which are themselves debated amongst religious scholars. As a closing statement, he asked the room of nearly 500 supporters to "pray and then work hard, and in that order," to help him secure a victory in Tuesday's GOP primary. This is clearly not separation of church and state, but instead separation of candidate and sanity.

Huckabee also wants to seal the borders tight to possible immigrants from countries that harbor and support terrorism. I suppose this list would have included the late Benazir Bhutto had she managed to have escaped her assassins. Palestinian Authority president Mahmoud Abbas. Afghani President Hamid Karzai, as well as every single human being risking their lives to protest and effect change from within corrupt governments that provide safe haven from terrorists throughout the middle east. I truly wonder just which meds Huckabee's medical team should prescribe for him to be taking on a regular basis. You would think Huckabee would take a moment away from laying the groundwork for the Fourth Reich, to splash some cold water on his face once he extracts it from his own anal canal.

The United States is not yet the theocratic society our forefathers escaped nearly 500 years ago. It's bad enough that thus far we've spent close to $1 trillion and allowed nearly 4,000 soldiers to die in the sands of theocratic regimes. Wasn't the plan to convert these narrow minded religious zealots into democratic governments? Are we now ready to become what we have long besmirched? We're now seven years in to the dumbest, clueless and reckless administration in our history. Does all consuming religious beliefs disintegrate brain cells to a point where Mike Huckabee appears presidential? Would you sit down at a bar to drink a beer with your good buddy Mike, or would you have to drink Kool-aid laced with hallucinogenic holy water?

The former Arkansas Governor knows virtually nothing about the complexities of this earth outside a church, including world affairs, economics, uniting a diverse country or stating virtually anything that doesn't make a sane person's jaw drop or eyes roll. I know, I just described verbatim a former Texas Governor and current US president as well. What is it about religion that thrusts these drooling goobers into positions of authority? I feel certain Huckabee will NOT be elected president. But who knows, with the current crap er crop of legitimate republican candidates, I can envision Mike being selected as a possible vice presidential nominee. That would put him a heartbeat away from the oval office if God forbid, the republican nominee wins. With candidates like McCain and Thompson, that could be literally any second. What is it going to take to make Americans of all walks of life finally realize that we can't keep taking these idiots seriously enough to elect them to positions of leadership? At the rate we're going, I fear one day relatively soon we're going to find out. I can assure you all if that day does come, we're not going to like what we see....

When the religious right gets control we end up with the sort of mess that we've endured for the past eight years. Scare the hell out of enough people, sell them on the belief that the only way out is to board the Jesus bandwagon and apparently it's possible to turn the country over to a crew of greedy idiots ie Bush and Cheney. Keep up the good work,exposing the reality of the Huckabees. J.Cormac
