be humble for you are made of earth; be noble for you are made of stars
Anyone seen the Family Guy episode when Brian and Stewey are teleporting to different planes of existance (ala Sliders) and come upon the Disney Universe. Everything is wonderful and serene and absolutely perfect....and then a jew shows up and you suddenly realize "yeah this place is crazy" as they all go to kill him.
Its kind of like that friend you met and began to hung out with for a while, seems cool, everything going well, then out of no where one day you head to the pool, he takes off his shirt, and there's a giant swaztica on his back and you're like "WTF".
This is Mike Huckabee.
Mike is one of those guys that on first glance and initially seemed like my ideal politician. He was rather well spoken with a "down to earth" kind of feel to it. He could speak like a preacher giving a sermon yet it was more teaching than lecturing. He had a pretty good sense of humor and was able to connect with pop culture and even laugh at himself (for example his times on The Colbert Report). He was for the Fair Tax. He seemed rather pragmatic and realistic when it came to the whole populism thing and not seeming "out for the corporation".
Then one day you hear him say some nutball extreme religious right comment and you just kind of blink, rub your eyes, and go "Huwahhh?"
Blindsided me when it first happened and now I just lament a guy that I think outside of that would've been such a good candidate.
"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
“If we must have an enemy at the head of Government, let it be one whom we can oppose, and for whom we are not responsible, who will not involve our party in the disgrace of his foolish and bad measures.”
