Where you are held accountable for your convictions and record

Duncan Hunter endorses the Huckster.

And yes, that faint popping sound you just heard was my head exploding.

To the extent it is still a viable political entity, Rush says nominating McCain or Huckabee will be the coup de grace. Sounds about right.

Hey, it wouldn’t be that crazy, would it? They look good together.

Let the Huckster slide over to the Democratic side now – call it the “quisling ticket,” the “unity ticket” or maybe even the “dream ticket” if you want, since both men propose to fulfill our most audacious imaginings – and leave the Republican slot open for someone grounded in reality. That would balance the choice in November.

Remember that time three days ago when the Huckster decided not to pay to run his ads attacking Mitt Romney … and then held a press conference to play them for national media so the media would run them for free?

It was Huckabee at his oiliest, donning the cloak of sanctimony to pronounce himself morally superior to the rest of the political world – while at that moment doing exactly what he said he was above doing.

You might not have to be brain damaged to support Mike Huckabee – but it helps, I would imagine. If you are not brain damaged, you DO have to be mildly inebriated to find the humor in Mike Huckabee simply because there is so much to hate about the man.

Well now comes this unsurprising bit of news from FactCheck:

The ad Huckabee said he decided not to run has now appeared at least three times in Iowa anyway. It accuses Romney of being “dishonest” but shades the facts in the process.

Update, Jan. 4: The ad ran at least 10 times on four different stations in Davenport and Cedar Rapids, Iowa. The Huckabee campaign called those airings a mistake.

Apparently, sailing aloft on the wings of seraphim excuses a LOT of behavior that might otherwise have one marked as a lying sack of s–t. So he’s got that going for him. On the minus side, he’s made himself a pretty fat target for everyone who is not singing “hosanna.”

Our King Is Come

Congratulations to King David Huckabee who has surely manifested the power of G-D in Iowa this day.

King David Huckabee

I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.

Psalm 2:7

So Samuel took the horn of oil and anointed him in the presence of his brothers, and from that day on the Spirit of the LORD came upon David in power.

1 Samuel 16:13

David told the leaders of the Levites to appoint their brothers as singers to sing joyful songs, accompanied by musical instruments: lyres, harps and cymbals.

1 Chronicles 15:16

Selah.

He can probably write a rockin’ psalm when he wants to, spiritual but real folksy-like.

UPDATE: I swear by the sacred staff of Odin I had not seen this when I thought of this post. Now that is funny.

UPDATE II: Well this is getting ridiculous. But on the other hand, it makes me look even smarter in my own mind than I already consider myself – which is saying something – so I feel compelled to note it here. That, and Chuck Norris is not easily ignored:

I was thinking about these types of comments the other day when I recalled another leader in ancient times that didn’t match up in the line up: King David. Seven men were poised and paraded for the position of king, but David was left in the field shepherding because he wasn’t “a frontrunner in the polls.” They overlooked the best because they were too busy judging by outward appearance. But God appointed David king.

And so shall He do for us. Selah.

This may be the most interesting evidence yet that Mike Huckabee is, in fact, the Whore of Babylon:

They came to hear Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee speak, but first the crowd of hundreds had to sit through a soft-sell pitch on the wonders of multi-level marketing.

For half an hour, two businessmen paced the stage where Huckabee would soon stump. They never said the name of the company during their talks, but afterward some members of the crowd shared with others the good news of a company called Quixtar Inc.

Quixtar is a sibling company of multi-level marketing giant Amway – and, according to Huckabee’s public schedule, the host of the event.

“Religious” business people have had a longstanding affinity with multi-level marketing in this country, which if I was not on my lunch break I could go on and on about. Think Andy Willoughby. (And if you told me Andy was a Huckabee supporter, I suppose I would be less than shocked).

So, long story short, another reason to fear the Huckster.

Just Say No

It’s the beginning of the new year, and two established supporters of illegal immigration – Mike Huckabee and John McCain – are near the top of the Republican pecking order as the 2008 presidential primaries are about to begin.

For some indeterminate reason, I am inspired to remind all of my fellow GOP’ers to maintain a critical eye:

Just Say No To The Republican National Committee.
