You Know, I Used to Think Mike Huckabee Might Run For President Again

I don't anymore, and this sort of ignorance is exactly why:



What the hell is "taxpayer-funded abortion pills"? Taxpayer dollars don't fund any kind of abortions under the Hyde Amendment.   Now, because he is ignorant, he might have the singularly stupid idea not unpopular with   fundies that birth control pills are abortifacients--they are not. They are contraceptives in the sense that they prevent conception, which in turn means they actually prevent abortions. And yes, those are provided by government dollars under Title X  and without co-pay as a part of insurance plans under the ACA. But even somewhat anti-science, also strong social conservative LA Gov. Bobby Jindal just recently published an op-ed endorsing over-the-counter birth control.  Now, of course Jindal's op-ed is for the purpose of divorcing the birth control issue from government altogether so tax dollars are not even second or third hand involved--but at least he isn't calling them "abortion pills".

But listen again, and this is a very short clip, but packed dense with Kulturkampf dummkopf-ery, he is talking about things we "used to call disorders", that we "now call normal"--whatever could that be?  I am pretty well-persuaded by my general knowledge about Huckabee's bullshit that he's talking about LGBT* people. It's sinful that gay and trans folk are treated as regular human beings, he's saying. That's what I think he was getting at.

I know I've said this before, but really, ginormously hump a bunch of Mike Huckabee. But this time, I think I mean, there ain't no poll numbers in 2016 gonna support no kind of Mike Huckabee. He is reinforcing his FOX Mushroom Farm cred, but really at the expense of anything in the way of political viability.  And if that is the way he feels, well--

Good. Happy death of political career to you. "Godspeed" you to irrelevance. Happy trails. And don't let the door hit you where the good Lord split ya, because that is probably some kind of sodomy, and stuff.And I care about Huckabee just enough to want to preserve his ass from understanding just how sinful he really is as a gluttonous grasping hypocrite to continue providing me with glurgy blogfodder. Forever and ever. Amen.
