True, I already knew there are plenty of religious nutjobs in Tennessee, but it's still a little disturbing to see that there are enough—189,949 to be precise—to make that full-blown wacko Mike Huckabee the winner of this state's Republican primary.
Huckabee, God's own candidate, thinks the Earth is 6,000 years old, and he doesn't believe in evolution. (He seems not to know that humans beings are primates.) He thinks gay marriage will end civilization as we know it, AIDS patients should be quarantined, unmarried people shouldn't live together and one way to curtail illegal immigration is to outlaw abortions so that every American fetus can grow up to join the labor pool. And of course, none of this is supposed to trouble anyone because Huckabee would never, ever try to impose his beliefs on the rest of us if he's elected president. Right.
If Hillary defeated hope, as the state GOP claims
, then Huckabee defeated reason.
