Mike Huckabee's a Pig

I used to have some measure of respect for Mike Huckabee, I really did. He seemed like a genuinely good guy, despite being someone I disagree with completely. I actually used to think he was a real electoral threat, since he was so nice and reasonable and personable.

Yeah. Not any more.

"I think this is not about trying to create statements for people who want to change the basic fundamental definitions of family," Huckabee said. "And always we should act in the best interest of the children, not in the seeming interest of the adults."

"Children are not puppies," he continued. "This is not a time to see if we can experiment and find out, how does this work?"

Even after box turtles, man on dog, the end of marriage as we know it, that's is still one of the more disgusting, wrong-headed and bigoted statements I've ever heard. In any right and reasonable country, this would end his aspirations to higher office. Someday I hope to live in a right and reasonable country.

Wow, I too had some respect for Huckabee even though he is someone I disagree with completely. This article completely changes that. His opinion on gays being foster parents is completely prejudice. That is always going to be in the best interest of the child as long as anyone can show they can be a legitimate parent by caring and nurturing a child; regardless of the parents sexual reference.
