Huckabee, Back in Iowa, Brings Christmas Message – New York Times

http://www.nytimes.com/2007/12/21/us/politics/21huckabee.html

Oh, Mike Huckabee. Politics is the reason for the season! The Presidential hopeful uses the tactic of pretending religion trumps politics to score political points with believers.

What’s wrong with our country, what is wrong with our culture, is that you can’t say the name Jesus Christ without people going completely berserk,” Mr. Huckabee told a crowd in Dike, a tiny farm town about 80 miles northeast of Des Moines, where people also stood to applaud… berserkly.

(Ironically, in Dike, Iowa, you can’t say the word “dyke” without people going totally berserk.)

I also loved this quote – which is why I stole the Stumble from MmmPi in the first place:

“Who is your favorite author?” Aleya Deatsch, 7, of West Des Moines asked Mr. Huckabee in one of those posing-like-a-shopping-mall-Santa moments.

Mr. Huckabee paused, then said his favorite author was Dr. Seuss.

In an interview afterward with the news media, Aleya said she was somewhat surprised. She thought the candidate would be reading at a higher level.

“My favorite author is C. S. Lewis,” she said.
