  • HE&OS FOR THE HUCKSTER

    Filed at 8:51 am under by dcobranchi

    With this post I throw my support behind Huckabee in the GOP nominating process and urge any Evolved Homeschoolers to support him in the primaries. I would especially urge any of my left-leaning friends who happen to live in a state with an open primary system to cross over to the dark side the aisle to support the YEC fundamentalist Baptist preacher.

    But what if your evil plan backfires and ends up as President?

    I’m with you, Daryl. I think that despite official party registrations, many people in the US are actually moderates and given the choice between the Huckster and either Obama or Edwards, most will lean to the left. It could backfire though if Hillary gets the Democratic nomination. I think a lot of people have an aversion to Hillary that could push them the other way.

    No chance of that happening. Huck’s definitely not ready for prime time.

    Why? Just because he eats squirrel cooked up in his double-wide’s popcorn popper?

    I think I’m even sicker of the southerner-as-trailer-trash stereotype than the homeschooler-as-evangelical:

    “Holy Iowa! Fear of a Huck Planet”

    No! It’s because he’s a know-nothing neophyte. Just in the last week he screwed up badly on Afghanistan/Pakistan and he crossed a picket line in NYC (or was it LA?) after saying that he supported the strikers but thought the strike was settled. And then there’s the YEC and the Fair Tax nonsense.

    JJ you know I’m a Southerner. I don’t buy into the Hillbilly nonsense. Huck’s just not credible as a national candidate. Of all of the Repub’s left standing, I worry about him winning least of all.

    I wish I had as much faith in the American electorate as you do.

    Right, Daryl – I’m mad at Huck for casting himself that way on purpose and perpetuating that disguting stereotype, to pander for the Ignorant Populist vote.
    Not at you. 🙂

    Hmmm… a southern, know-nothing neophyte. For some reason that sounds familiar, Daryl. 😉

    “No chance of that happening. Huck’s definitely not ready for prime time.”

    Does that not ring a bell?? Or, sound off alarm bells? Was ‘W’ ready for prime time…. and he was even re-elected to continue with his folly!!
    I dunno, Daryl, but you might want to play it safe on this one.

    Consider it done. I’ll vote for him in the primaries and then vote for whatever Dem we end up with in the actual election.

    I see this call much like Daryl, with Huckabee unelectable this time around. The only “R” in the current field with much chance at all, imo, is McCain and he’d probably need to be on a Unity ticket in the second slot with Obama to do it . . .

    They could use Ebony N Ivory as the campaign theme song…

    You know what I would love? To be able to cast TWO votes in the primary, or one for each party if there is a third party candidate running. And I wouldn’t waste that extra vote, I’d vote for which ever candidate I thought was the best in that party, so that if my party of choice candidate didn’t get the nomination, I’d at least have the chance that my choice for the other party did.

    And I’m fantasizing here, so don’t anybody get all lecture-y and tell me why this wouldn’t work. Let me dream..

    I’m not impressed by ANY of the candidates, and I’m really tired of voting for “the lessor of 2 evils.”

    Oh – and COD’s comment about Huck becoming president scares me, and I’m one of those Conservative Christian Homeschoolers.

    LOL! Obama would have to wear shades and get some rhythm (has anyone ever seen him move?) but Paul passed 64 already so John’s age is no problem — and McCain-McCartney, hey wait, this is eerie!
