FUCKING IGNORANT CHRISTIANS

I AM PISSED AS HELL.








this man is a joke.

here we go again...this country has been dragged into the shitter by a bunch of

creationist
jesusist
"pro-life = anti-you-&-me-ist"
isolationist
waterboardingist
neocon
jingoist
anti-ecological
leavemygunalone
biblethumpers.

...and the candidates with the most foreign policy experience - Biden & Richardson - can't get arrested, when we are desperately in need of a statesmanwomanperson to repair the damage done by the last batch of pinheads.

i know lots of smart, progressive Christians who are NOT aligned with this guy, thank godiftherewasagodtothank. but once more, the voices of ignorance are gathering behind the issues of guns, god & gays while we sink deeper and deeper into third-rate nationhood.

remember boys & girls...we get the government we deserve. pleasepleaseplease let it not be (again) a person of Huckabee's ilk.

If there were any doubts that Religious Right voters are still a powerful force in the Republican Party, Mike Huckabee's huge win in the Iowa Republican caucuses last night put them to rest.

Huckabee's friendly, folksy demeanor can distract attention from the disturbing fact that he and his backers essentially urged conservative evangelicals to vote for him based on his being the "right" kind of Christian.

That should make Americans very nervous.

Governor Huckabee has pledged to support every item on the Radical Right's wish list: a constitutional ban on abortion, a veto of legislation to protect gay and lesbian Americans from discrimination, support for a bill to keep federal courts from intervening when local officials violate the separation of church and state, and most importantly, a far-right Supreme Court.

When asked about what kind of justices Huckabee would appoint to the Supreme Court -- something CNN predicts the next president could get to do three or more times -- his answer was:

"I would want people who are in the spirit of Scalia. He's probably my hero in the Court."

That should make Americans even more nervous.

To find out more about what Mike Huckabee and the other Republican presidential candidates are saying about the Court, please visit www.TakeBackTheCourt.org.

And for more information on Huckabee and the Religious Right, see PFAW's report The Huckabee Surge: Why Religious Right Activists Like Mike and our Right Wing Watch Huckabee archive .

We hope that you stand with us in 2008 as we continue to expose and counter the Radical Right, and mobilize thousands of Americans to Take Back the Court.

I agree 100%, cb. Well said. But I believe the time of Republican rule is at an end. Sure, we had to slog through 8 miserable years of Bush to get to this place, but Pigboy Rove's dream of a permanant Republican majority blew up in his face and the fallout is nationwide. Just look at the Democratic turnout in redder-than-red Iowa!

Huckabee's a clown and he will fade. I don't think he's got the resources to compete long-term, which unfortunately may open the door for McCain (the only Repub who stands a chance against the Democratic nominee imho).

Maybe I'm being overly optimistic, but I don't think this country is going to let the kooky religious right frame the debate anymore. They are the minority, and a significant minority at that. But they and the rest of the Repugs will go down swinging and kicking and screaming and smearing and lying. The right wing smear machine has already got Obama in its crosshairs and they will come at him (assuming it's him) with everything they've got.

I just don't think anyone's buying it this time around.
