Huckahasbeen

I'm angry enough to violate one of my personal policies against mocking someone's name. I didn't like him before, but now there is no way I would ever vote for the man. No way.

I understand what he is trying to say. I agree it would be nifty if we all lived by the Golden Rule. But we don't. And I can't help but think that what he means by God's law is not what I mean by God's law. One thinks immediately of Prohibition and blue laws when Baptist preachers start talking about God's law. I'm all for faith informed voting decisions, but being able to buy liquor at a liquor store has more to do with palliating congregations than following Scripture. And if you think you can legislate people into loving God and loving their neighbour, then your brain is broke.

Huckabee has a lot going for him. Unfortunately, his biggest negative is his own mouth.
I am disappointed at how much he sounds like he is campaigning for High School President instead of US President.

Granted.

"And I can't help but think that what he means by God's law is not what I mean by God's law. One thinks immediately of Prohibition and blue laws when Baptist preachers start talking about God's law."

Ah, I see...

It's a bit of a stretch isn't it? And where's the restraint? (Over there, in a box)

The Hukster has a record that is easy to review, and easier to find room for disagreement. Is there a need for resorting to stereotypes?
Where's that objectivity? (In the box? No the restraint is putting on weight)
