Huckabee: Sheer Genius

Never mind that he tried to turn a tragic event into a political opportunity. But Huckabee also misstated the number of Pakistanis who have entered the country illegally in a clear attempt to add more fear into the mix. I mean, nevermind that the U.S. has propped up a dictator who illegally took power in Pakistan, let's concern ourselves with the number of Pakistani nationals who are trying to come here, overturn our republic and install a Sharia-based, islamo-Fascist government. And with 660 of them so far (a made up number) we should be waking up any day now to blasphemy charges....

By the way, the article I've linked is a must read. It finishes pretty strong with CNN analyst Bill Schneider essentially calling Huckabee supporters stupid.

But CNN senior political analyst Bill Schneider said the debate over whether Huckabee has command of the nuances of the Pakistan crisis would have little impact on his support.

"Mike Huckabee is a populist. His comments on Pakistan reflect a populist understanding of the crisis, which, is to say, not much," Schneider said. "Sure, the political establishment is snickering, but I doubt that his misstatements bother his supporters much."

His supporters are the same dumbasses who helped to elect Bush

Along with the virtual chaos in nuclear armed Pakistan (to be made worse by this morning's allegations that the Pakistani govt is covering up the details about the assasination), we here in the US should be just as worried about the liklihood that Huck's ignorance doesn't bother his supporters much.
