In a straw poll yesterday at the Values Voters Summit, Mike Huckabee won 29 percent of the vote as their most preferred Republican candidate for president in 2014.
Huckabee, who promised a squirrel in every pot, also promises plenty of religiosity, courtesy of his Southern Baptist minister training.
You see, folks, the Republican party is now all about the Deep South and their creepy, racist, Christian fundamentalist world view.
Get a load of yesterday's conference break-out meetings for Value Voters:
-Global Warming Hysteria: The New Face of the "Pro-Death Agenda"
-Obamacare: Rationing Your Life Away
-Activism and Conservatism: Fit to a (Tea) Party
-Thugocracy: Fighting the Vast Left-Wing Conspiracy
Yep, this shit was the popular subject matter for the tighty righties.
Never mind putting an end to war, finding health care solutions for all Americans, improving educational standards or balancing the budget, the Party of No just wants to bitch about conspiracies and plan attacks against issues they are too ignorant to understand, and too incurious to learn about.
Whew, I was hoping a group like this wouldn't endorse Mitt Romney and his magic underwear. He actually looks like the kind of bland white dude these hicks could envision as a leader.
But nope, they want the fat Southern preacher with squirrel breath and a wife who rivals Barbara Bush in the style department.
Let's forget all about reviving Camelot, with an attractive young president and an adorable family.
With Huckabee, we'll get HeeHaw and all the fixins'.
Where do I send my campaign contribution? I have a whole shoebox filled with Confederate money I want to send the huckster.
