It’s fun watching the Republican establishment run from Huckabee.
John Cole has as interesting take on it. Huckabee is their own Frankenstein’s monster:
And it is JUST what the GOP deserves. Look, all you establishment Republicans, I know you werenâ€™t serious about Terri Schiavo. That is why it was so depressing watching you throw the concept of federalism out the window to pander to these guys. But they were deadly serious. The same with all the anti-gay stuff. I know a number of the Republicans I grew up with could not care less about the current ant-gay marriage jihad some want to wage. I know most of my republican friends really arenâ€™t homophobes. But you had to bend over to the religious right, and this was an easy way to get their support. besides, who were the log Cabin Republicans going to vote for anyway? The same with stem cells, abstinence only, etc. Whatever you have to do keep â€˜em quiet and keep â€˜em voting- you will accept a certain amount of ignorance, religious hokum, and bigotry, just so long as the votes keep coming.
