Huckaphony

Now the Casanova is no fan of former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee. When he first emerged on the national stage following an impressive showing in Iowa, the public was intrigued by his folksy charm and quick witted humor. But upon examination of his record, the former Governor holds very little conservative credentials, raising taxes in Arkansas on several occasions during his tenure. This man labels himself a Republican but apart from his Bible thumping speeches, does not possess a conservative portfolio.

Huckabee was running for the nomination during a time our party needed a strong commander-in-chief. Sadly he conducted himself in debates and campaign events as the court jester.

Thus the term "Huckaphony" was coined by one of my favorite pundits, Mark Levin.

But why bring this up now?

Because Governor Huckaphony found his name in the headlines today when he labeled the stimulus bill as "anti-religious".

Huckabee tries to justify his rather absurd accusation by pointing to a clause that would ban federal funds from going to any “school or department of divinity.”

The Governor is engaging in tactics that are destructive to the party's image and serve as roadblocks to the process of returning to conservative roots. He is employing a divisive strategy focused on separating the shrinking Religious Right from mainstream conservatism.

Huckabee knows his time in the spotlight is dwindling. His neighborly persona that was once refreshing in a tough political landscape has become an annoyance and a distraction to fixing America's problems.

I have been following you for a longtime Casanova. And I cant believe you actually got something right today.
I enjoyed listening to Huckabee speak during the campaign, but Im liberal so it was more for shock value.
The man is a pretty unstable individual.
