Let's get this out of the way

I don’t really want to talk about Mike Huckabee because I don’t want to lend his campaign any credence, especially the kind that comes from a cutting-edge political blog of this caliber. [See It’s possible I have too much time to think.]

However, I do have to say that it is most frustrating to read accounts of his New Hampshire approach that all say “he’s toning down his conservative Christian message” in advance of tonight’s primary, since NHers are considerably more socially liberal than Iowans. Excuse me. How does that work? People haven’t been listening so far and they’ll be fooled by the fact that oh, he seems like a good guy and he’s all about change and he’s not really mentioning that he’s staunchly pro-life and anti-gay marriage and believes that every word written in the Bible is literally true? Are you kidding me? I don’t even believe that every word written in The Joy of Cooking is true. That chapter on bread? Iffy.

Obviously, Huckabee will not come out ahead in NH, but either way, people—aren’t we smarter than this?

Something else that is not worth mentioning: a restaurant in New Hampshire is serving The Huckaburger, which is made with lean bison, baby spinach, sprouts, and tomato on a whole-wheat bun topped with a fried pickle. It does not get my vote.

That "Huckaburger" or whatever they're calling it, is an outcome of the ONE and ONLY thing I admire about Huckabee... he used to weigh 400+ lbs and now stays fit through diet and exercise. While I hate doing it, I guess I have to give him his props for that. Meanwhile, I had a BLT for lunch today. With mayo. Mike Huckabee would never eat such a thing.

Oh, that is admirable. I google-imaged him and found some good stuff. Check this out.
