In Defense of Last Night's Rant

In support of yesterday’s controversial rant point of view comes an article in today’s New York Times about Mike Huckabee’s supporters. I could not come up with a better example of someone who should NOT vote.

“I have not been super-active in politics over the years, and so I am not current with all the issues and position papers…But with Mike Huckabee, I know he’s a Christian. So I know he sees the world the way I see it.”

I left the name of the person who said it out because it is not my place to call this person out, but the article can be found right here.

Here is another winner of a quote from another person:
“Beyond all that, a lot of people are tired of the fact that we can’t say Merry Christmas any more, and that ‘God’ is removed from every public place…Here’s a guy, Mike Huckabee, who comes along, and he’s not mad about anything, but he’s just saying, ‘Hey, let’s take another look at what’s happening here.’”

We are electing a political leader for this country, not a spiritual guide or moral compass. If you cannot be bothered to learn something about politics then your opinion about politics does not matter and should not count. Bush already served two terms because these people felt the same way about Bush that they feel about Huckabee and look at all the damage Bush has wrought.

Insanity is doing the same thing and expecting different results. Can I call these people insane yet?

You know what scares me about Huckabee? It's that with the real threat of "right" supporters rallying around him thinking they're escaping the bonds of the Bush administration, this country may be in danger of becoming something of a theocracy.

You're right, we need a strong leader, not a guru or a Westernized dalai lama.

Personally, I think they're too stupid to be insane...

Turns out good ole' Pastor Mike "I have a degree in theology" Huckabee is a liar and has no degree in theology. He did attend Seminary school, but it seems he dropped out after one year to work for a televangelist.

And the campaign manager yells "iceberg; dead ahead!"

Ah, those holiday scenes of the precious urchins in elf costumes jumping little old ladies who dare utter, "Merry Christmas" and pummeling them within an inch of their lives. Ah, the traditional holiday trimmings.

Where the hell do these people live? Heck, I'm no longer a practicing Christian and I wish people "Merry Christmas."
