Mike Huckabee: The candidate who is conservative per abortion and gay marriage, liberal per everything else, sees foreign policy as a wonderful chance to treat homicidal maniacs like your sibling or best friend, and doesn't understand the concept of separation of church and state.
THIS MAN WON THE IOWA CAUCUS BY 9 FREAKING POINTS?!?
To any Republican-primary-goer who may chance to read this: Do you realize that if Huckabee becomes the Republican nominee for president, we will lose? Not only lose, but lose badly. Are we really so invested in identity politics that we'll vote for a guy just because he's a Baptist preacher?? 'Cause really, that's all he has going for him (other than a fantastic oratory presence. Gotta give credit where credit is due).
The man pardoned or otherwise helped to free over 1,000 criminals while governor of Arkansas-- more than his four predecessors combined (including Bill Clinton). And some of the most loathsome, dangerous criminals he helped because they had "found Jesus" in jail.
He's a taxer.
He isn't strong vs. illegal immigration.
He thinks people like Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Kim Jong Il should be treated like siblings or close friends.
He's running as the anti-Mormon candidate.
He's a liar.
Fellow GOP-ers, if this man is your choice, be afraid, come November. Be very afraid. Not only will he go down spectacularly, but the entire party will go with him.
