Excuse me, Huckapostles? We need to talk.

This comment in one of the "Huckabashing" threads today made me laugh, so I decided to highlight it for everyone to see.

Mike Huckabee is the Sanjaya of the Republican Party nomination contest. If everybody could vote for the worst candidate, he'd have been tossed out in the first few weeks. But the system only allows you to register votes for your favorites, damnit.

It's funny because it's true, but it makes me think: Can anyone here make a case FOR Huckabee being the nominee of the Republican party? Ace respectfully allowed all the Paul-istinians to make the case for their man several days ago, so maybe it's time to ask for any Huckapostles out there to de-lurk and try to make their case.

With my piece about Huck's disingenuous immigration policy, and the recent piece about Huck's pledge to bring the Constitution in line with "God's Policies", this seems to be "Bash Huck Day", but I'd really like to hear a sales pitch from a Huck supporter. I can't promise that you won't be mocked, but for what it's worth, the morons here even mock our King, so please think of it as friendly banter.

I'm gonna be SO glad when the political silly season is over, and we can get back to posting links to "stupid criminals" articles, NSFW YouTube videos, and LauraW spamming the site with kitten pictures; but while we're in the soup, let's make the best of it and see what the other side has to say.


(sorry, Ace. I like that "snowclone" so much I just had to try one for myself)

Thanks to all the commenters who gave their reasons to be at least moderately supportive of the Huck. I was hoping to get the opinion of a True Believer, but I guess the AoSHQ is a "no-go" zone for those type of people. Lord knows, they might get some secular cooties from associating with us heathen.

I respect everyone who listens to Huck's strong statements on immigration & foreign policy and wants to believe, but I still think he's selling a combination of perpetual motion machines and "magic beans" to the American people. Grand promises mean nothing if the promiser changes his mind more often than legendary moron "compos mentis" has to change his jockey shorts.
