If ever there was any doubt that Mike Huckabee is a Theocrat through and through then he just removed it while speaking here in Michigan before the primary:
“I have opponents in this race who do not want to change the Constitution,” Huckabee told a Michigan audience on Monday. “But I believe 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—to amend the Constitution so it’s in God’s standards rather than try to change God’s standards so it lines up with some contemporary view.”
When Willie Geist reported Huckabee’s opinion on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, co-host Mika Brzezinski was almost speechless, and even Joe Scarborough couldn’t immediately find much to say beyond calling it “interesting,”
Scarborough finally suggested that while he believes “evangelicals should be able to talk politics … some might find that statement very troubling, that we’re going to change the Constitution to be in line with the Bible. And that’s all I’m going to say.”
Troubling? Gee, ya think? After seven years of the Bush Administration I honestly thought that anything other than Bush would be an improvement. Mike Huckabee appears determined to prove me wrong. If this asshole actually somehow manages to win the White House I’ll have no choice but to seriously consider moving to a more sane country. I don’t know if I could handle sitting through four—and possibly up to eight—years of a Theocrat president.
