Radio and Fox News Personality Mike Huckabee, former Governor of Arkansas and former GOP candidate wannabe, is running for President ... again. And Uncle Sugar is crazier than ever, spouting all kinds of nonsense. God has called him to be President . . . again. This should be fun!
Huckabee once again feels he is The Chosen One, ordained by God, unlike the other fifteen GOP guys (including Santorum, Romney, Bush, etc) and gal (Sarah Palin) who believe THEY are the chosen ones.
. . . whether it is me or someone else and I do ask people to pray because for me... this is not just a political or financial decision, it is a spiritual decision. The only thing worse than not being elected president would be to be elected president without God’s blessing; I can’t think of a worse place in the world to be than in the Oval Office without God’s hand upon you. I’d rather not get near the place. But if that’s a purpose then so be it and that’s my prayer.

And he's tossing around some new terms to show his cognitive dissonance, like "secular theocracy" to describe the United States. Huh? That's an oxymoron, moron!
From Talking Points Memo
"We cannot survive as a republic if we do not become, once again, a God-centered nation that understands that our laws do not come from man, they come from God," he said on the show "Life Today."
When Huckabee added that he wasn't demanding a theocracy, host James Robison said, "We have a theocracy right now. It's a secular theocracy."
"That's it!" Huckabee said, describing the current political order as "humanistic, secular, atheistic, even antagonistic toward Christian faith."
Update: Here is Huckabee spouting nonsense at the Iowa Freedom Summit last weekend:
"Washington D.C. has become the Roach Motel - people go in, but they never come out"
(But he wants voters to send him there, right?)
And at 3:42 on the video, he rambles about killing pigs and making sausage. huh?
. . . governing America isn't always easy. It has been said that there are two things you should never see. You should never see a law or a sausage made. I have seen both. But I can attest to the fact that neither are very pretty. And in the case of a sausage, you in Iowa get this the way no one else in America does. But if you want some sausage, you gotta kill some pigs. And folks, there are alot of people in America who want the sausage, but they don't want to kill the pigs. We need to do some pig-killin'. To get to the sausage.
Huckabee just wrote a book called God, Guns, Grits, and Gravy. No, that isn't a joke or a parody from The Onion. In this alliterative tome, Huckleberry apparently rants about the singer Beyonce and her husband Jay-Z, both personal friends of the Obama family. What a great way to start a Presidential campaign - offend all the Beyonce fans in the world, and most of the black voters in the world, and anyone who believes that kids should listen to music they like. Yeah, that will work out well for him.
Huckabee may have a point, though. Remember all those Presidents who were elected after telling parents to burn Elvis and Beatle records? Oh wait . . . that never worked. But please, proceed, Chosen One!
From Atlanta Black Star
Huckabee slammed Jay-Z as a “pimp” for “exploiting” his wife, referred to Beyonce’s music as “trash” and said their performances together were nothing short of “foreplay” that needed to be saved “for the privacy of their bedroom.”
Huckabee’s new book titled “God, Guns, Grits, and Gravy” will be hitting the shelves soon, and it’s already garnered a lot of attention for his decision to dedicate quite a bit of space in the book to sharing his opinion of Jay-Z and Beyonce.
For those still trying to figure out why the presumed presidential hopeful for the Republican Party even decided to comment on the couple, it’s his way of slamming President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama’s character because they are friends with Beyonce and Jay-Z.
That alone is an interesting choice and train of thought on Huckabee’s behalf, but his criticisms of the superstar couple are really what has most people scratching their heads.
“Does it occur to him that he is arguably crossing the line from husband to pimp by exploiting his wife as a sex object,” Huckabee wrote of Jay-Z.
He then took aim at Beyonce, writing that she, “must have been confused when she agreed to humiliate herself by performing in a way that prompted this comment from author Charlotte Hays …’Honestly, I didn’t want to watch Jay-Z and Beyonce’s foreplay.’ ”
In a recent interview with People magazine, Huckabee skewers President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama’s parenting skills because they allow their teenage daughters Malia and Sasha to listen to the “Drunk In Love” singer.
After conceding that the Obamas “are excellent and exemplary parents in many ways,” the conservative former Arkansas governor said ”I don’t understand how on one hand they can be such doting parents and so careful about the intake of everything – how much broccoli they eat and where they go to school and making sure they’re kind of sheltered and shielded from so many things – and yet they don’t see anything that might not be suitable for either a preteen or a teen in some of the lyrical content and choreography of Beyoncé, who has sort of a regular key to the door [of the White House].”
But, but . . . Uncle Sugar is good friends with insidious Obama-hater and Gun Nut, Ted Nugent, and has even played "Cat Scratch Fever" with him on the guitar.

Jon Stewart called Huckabee out on this on The Daily Show. But Huck shrugged it off because he is a colossal hypocrite!
“Young girls want to be like her,” said Huckabee. “Do you know any parent who has a daughter, that says, 'Honey, if you make really good grades, some day when you're 12 or 13 we'll get you your own stripper pole?'”
“I think that's diminishing to Beyonce in a way that's outrageous,” said Stewart. “All this stuff about the culture, and it's so insidious—you don't have to do that.”
That was Stewart's cue to play a clip from Huckabee's recently ended Fox News show, where the erstwhile presidential candidate accompanied Ted Nugent on a rendition of “Cat Scratch Fever,” a typically unsubtle Nugent love song.
“You excuse of his type of crudeness because you agree with his stance on firearms,” said Stewart. “You don't excuse Beyonce because she seems alien to you. Maybe the problem is Bubba is in a bubble.”
Huckabee was ready for this. (He should have been; the “what about Nugent?” counterattack is almost a cliche.)
“When Ted Nugent did that song, 1978, never got nominated for Grammy, never performed it on national television,” said Huckabee. “In fact, do you know what the song of the year was? It was a tie between 'Evergreen' and 'You Light Up My Life' and John Denver hosted the Grammys.”
Huckabee again defended himself on ABC's The View, but an old friend of Beyonce's just happened to be there - Michelle Williams, her band-mate from Destiny's Child. And she called Huckabee out on his remarks in a much kinder way than he deserved!
