I’d say the funeral is a little premature — but no less welcome.
If it wasn’t for abortion they’d be Democrats.
I’ve generally found the notion of an impending Theocracy amusing. The whole fantasy rests on the ability of religious sorts to get past “you’re not the boss of me” in their reactions with each other.
I’m a religious sort and, well, you’re not the boss of me.

RE: Seems to Me….
….being an evangelical sort, myself, that Huckabee reminded me too much of the scribes some Guy warned us about around 2000 years ago.
The scribes are no longer with us, in an official capacity, but their sort are always around.
38 And he said unto them in his doctrine, Beware of the scribes, which love to go in long clothing, and love salutations in the marketplaces,
39 And the chief seats in the synagogues, and the uppermost rooms at feasts:
40 Which devour widows’ houses, and for a pretence make long prayers: these shall receive greater damnation.
P.S. In my opinion, the scribes of that time were a lot like lawyers or lawmakers of today.
I can’t figure out the draw for Huckabee. I’m evangelical and my experience has tended to show that the folks who tell you constantly that they are Christians do so because you wouldn’t know it by just watching them. I get that same sense of the remaining R candidates and their constant invocation of Reagan.

It’s akin to what I mentioned above. Or, as some Wag put it, around 2000 years ago….
A tree is known by its fruit.

I don’t think Huck quite understands low level church politics. It looks like he’s parachuted into distressed churches, rebuilt them from a clean slate start, and then moved on when things started to drag a bit. Nothing in there about keeping the little old ladies from splitting the church over the pot luck dish assignment scheme. Being a positive guy is nice and all, but Obama already has that spot staked out, and can show proof of his ability to unite.
Uniting is overrated. When Repubs unite with dems, you get things like suppression of free speech and Ted Kennedy education bills.
I’m not looking for a uniter. I want someone who will show the definitive differences between the parties and then act according to those differences. I think Fred is the only one who has demonstrated that he is of his own mind. (funny, since he’s an actor and all…) I want a fighter, not a lover.
I want dems left out in the cold (or their global heat) when it comes to getting along, after all, it’s what they’ve done to repubs for decades. Their little 100 days stunt last year proves that they aren’t will to play nice, so why should we?
This supports my theory that roughly 30% of both parties are completely fucking nuts. You have the moonbat truther “communism would work if it was run by the right people” in the Democratic party, and the mindlessly religious (as opposed to thoughtfully religious) Republicans.
