5 reasons why Mike Huckabee is ludicrous

1. Is this a joke?

2. Get your hands off me, you damned dirty ape

Huckabee was one of three GOP candidates who raised their hand during Thursday's debate when asked if they don't believe in evolution the development of organisms and species from a primitive state [sic].

[..] Huckabee said if given a chance to elaborate on the question from MSNBC moderator Chris Matthews, he would have responded: "If you want to believe that you and your family came from apes, I'll accept that....I believe there was a creative process."

3. Let's call it a cavalier attitude

LITTLE ROCK, Arkansas — In a desperate and cynical attempt to get some attention for his utterly forgotten campaign for the GOP nomination, former Governor Mike Huckabee pulled a Jim Webb on his own son and sent young David Huckabee through airport security with a LOADED HANDGUN.

The Glock .40-caliber was “loaded with eight rounds” and concealed in David Huckabee’s briefcase, which he cunningly put through the X-Ray machine.

[...] One of his sons was involved in the hanging of a stray dog at a Boy Scout camp in 1998. The incident led to the dismissal of David Huckabee, then 17, from his job as a counselor at Camp Pioneer in Hatfield, Ark. It also prompted the local prosecuting attorney— bombarded with complaints generated by a national animal-rights group—to write a letter to the Arkansas state police seeking help investigating whether David and another teenager had violated state animal-cruelty laws. The state police never granted the request, and no charges were ever filed. But John Bailey, then the director of Arkansas's state police, tells NEWSWEEK that Governor Huckabee's chief of staff and personal lawyer both leaned on him to write a letter officially denying the local prosecutor's request.

On Friday Union Advisory Board President David Huckabee paid $62.50 in city fees for two companies he owns and operates in Jonesboro. [...] Huckabee, a senior political science and speech communications major of Little Rock, paid the $62.50 fine after receiving a notice from the Jonesboro City Collector's office. Huckabee paid the fine using 6,250 pennies, which took more than 45 minutes to process.

4. Hamburglar-chic? So 1988, darling

5. Even Coulter thinks he's stupid

As far as I can tell, it's mostly secular liberals swooning over Huckabee. Liberals adore Huckabee because he fits their image of what an evangelical should be: stupid and easily led.
