Huckabee: God sez amend the Constitution

"It's a lot easier to change the Constitution than it would be to change the word of the living God. What we need to do is to amend the Constitution so it's in God's standards rather than trying to change God's standards so it lines up with some contemporary view of how we treat each other and how we treat the family."

- Mike Huckabee, at a campaign event in Michigan, 14 Jan 08, reported by Salon.

This man scares me.

Scares doesn't do it justice. He terrifies me, and what's almost as bad is how dismissive a lot of Democrats are -- they're hoping he gets the nomination because they think he's easily beatable.

The man's a Baptist preacher. That means he knows how to give a speech and turn on the charisma. Anyone thinking he's easily beatable isn't paying attention.

yep, very terrified. I know people who would love him for saying those very things. And I wonder who is more numerous - those terrified by him or those who love him.

I think many of the Democrats who think he's beatable, don't really know the type of people who would love him.

Yes, and then I screamed and ran away.

Fortunately, I think even my nutter in-laws won't vote for him. Alas that there are even nuttier right-wingers than them.
