Joseph noted that the lead suspect in the massacre of four police officers in the State of Washington was someone that former Arkansas Governor/National Kasich endorser Mike Huckabee.

This is days after Kyle Sisk said that Strickland’s political career may be over because he granted clemency (not a pardon) to a man who spent twelve years for a murder both the prosecutor and the trial judge has concluded he did not commit.

Curiously, after first removing from the post a gratuitous reference to the wrongfully convincted inmate’s race, Sisk has now scrubbed the post entirely from […]

February 15, 2008 — THE founder of the rock band Boston is enraged that Mike Huckabee is using his band’s hit “More Than a Feeling” on the campaign trail. He’s written a letter to Huckabee demanding the GOP candidate stop using it. “Boston has never endorsed a political candidate, and with all due respect, would not start by endorsing a candidate who is the polar opposite of most everything Boston stands for,” wrote Tom Scholz. “In fact, although I’m impressed you learned my bass guitar part on ‘More Than a Feeling,’ I am an Obama supporter.”

It’s a Capitol […]

Huck shows his ugly side

On January 18, 2008 By

Huck’s got a little Old Testament in him.

?You don?t like people from outside the state coming in and telling you what to do with your flag,? Mr. Huckabee, a former governor of Arkansas, told supporters in Myrtle Beach, according to The Associated Press.

?In fact,? he said, ?if somebody came to Arkansas and told us what to do with our flag, we?d tell them what to do with the pole; that?s what we?d do.?

A little reminiscent of George Wallace, no?

On of the guys who bleats loudest about the “War on Christmas” (other than Bill-O, of course) is Bill Donahue of the Catholic League. He’s now criticizing Huck for injecting too much religion into politics, specifically about his latest television advert.

Donahue, the president of the Catholic League and an ardent defender of Christmas in what he believes is a secular “war” against the holiday, told hosts of the Fox and Friends morning program that the ad had gone too far.

“The whole idea is to give the appearance of a cross,” he said, “and this is just […]

Huck: I’m Christian, damnit!

On December 20, 2007 By

Is that a cross over his shoulder? Sure as heck looks like one. Especially how it’s lit. Huck really wants you to know he’s a Christian.

Everybody loves Huck!

Did you know gay sex is a relatively new phenomenon in human history? Mike Huckabee sets the record straight.

The governor regards 1968 as the dawning of ??the age of the birth-control pill, free love, gay sex, the drug culture and reckless disregard for standards.??

Apparently the Greeks and Romans didn’t have widespread gay sex. Who knew? (Huck.) You learn something new every day!

I guess I’m not that surprised: some folks are using some underhanded push-polling to promote Huckabee.

A newly-formed group claiming to support Mike Huckabee hit the phones of Iowa Republicans tonight with an automated push-poll attacking Huckabee’s GOP opponents and praising the former Arkansas governor.

Officials representing the Iowa campaigns of Fred Thompson, John McCain and Rudy Giuliani all said that their supporters contacted them to complain about the calls. A spokesman for Romney’s campaign said they had gotten reports of calls, but did not know of anything negative being said about their candidate.

It appears this group […]

No comment needed except… 1) Wow! and 2) It will be interesting to see how this story will play out alongside the presidential primary election cycle. Surely there will be a hailstorm of commentary on that over the next few days.

DES MOINES, Iowa – A Polk County judge on Thursday struck down Iowa’s law banning gay marriage and ordered the county recorder to permit gay and lesbian couples to marry.

Less than two hours after word of the ruling was publicized, two Des Moines men applied at the Polk County recorder’s office for a marriage license, and for the first time the application was accepted. The process of granting a license to marry in Iowa takes three days.

When asked about the Larry Craig incident, Mike Huckabee had a pretty good response:

“The American people will forgive us for being sinners. They will not forgive us for being hypocrites.”

But I’d take it a step further by asking: who really cares if Larry Craig is gay?

I certainly don’t. I don’t even care if he wants to meet people in a bathroom to have sex.

Being a lying hypocrite, though- that’s a different story.

The fact is: a lot of people are gay. It doesn’t make them sinners and it certainly doesn’t make them bad political […]
