Fundies Heart Huckabee

Mike Huckabee is another Republican candidate for the Presidency (more accurately, his party's nomination). He used to be governor of Arkansas. Anyhow...

Fundie? Huckabee is an ordained Southern Baptist minister, pro-life, creationist, supports teacher-led public school prayer, etc. In other words, yes - a million times, yes.

Jingo? He supports the Iraq War and the troop surge. That, and Chuck Norris supports Huckabee's campaign. A Chuck Norris roundhouse kick of support constitutes an instant yes in the jingo category!

Pinko? Probably not. While against federally-funded universal health care, his own weight loss success might make him a health totalitarian. Taking George Foreman's cue to another level, Huckabee just might knock out America's fat, whether America likes it or not.

However, since green is apparently the new red, Huckabee's boy scout environmentalism ("leave the earth better than we found it") does seem a bit pinkish in today's false-dichotomous America.
