“We the People of God, in order to form a more perfect theocracy”

Thanks to Spirula for pointing to this one:

Huckabee: Amend Constitution to be in ‘God’s standards’
David Edwards and Muriel Kane

I know we are all sick of hearing about Upchuckabee, but it’s important to keep making fun of him and making sure that he is as far from the nomination as possible because as we have seen with Dubya, we can’t take it for granted that people won’t vote for him.

From The Raw Story:

The United States Constitution never uses the word “God” or makes mention of any religion, drawing its sole authority from “We the People.” However, Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee thinks it’s time to put an end to that.

“I have opponents in this race who do not want to change the Constitution,” Huckabee told a Michigan audience on Monday. “But I believe it’s a lot easier to change the Constitution than it would be to change the word of the living god. And that’s what we need to do — to amend the Constitution so it’s in God’s standards rather than try to change God’s standards so it lines up with some contemporary view.”

When Willie Geist reported Huckabee’s opinion on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, co-host Mika Brzezinski was almost speechless, and even Joe Scarborough couldn’t immediately find much to say beyond calling it “interesting,”

Scarborough finally suggested that while he believes “evangelicals should be able to talk politics … some might find that statement very troubling, that we’re going to change the Constitution to be in line with the Bible. And that’s all I’m going to say.”

Geist further noted of Huckabee that if “someone without his charm,” said that, “he’d be dismissed as a crackpot, but he’s Mike Huckabee and he’s basically the front-runner.”

Larro sent me this yesterday. Doesn't stuff like this just make everyone want to scream...nooooooo.....it's nonsense, wake up!

tina, I can't believe that no reporters or anyone doesn't call him or any other fundies on their desires to disassemble the Constitution to incorporate their god beliefs.

Fuckabee, if he really believes this stuff, is indeed a crackpot. With him in charge, he will be all gun-ho to start WWIII to bring on the end of times. He is a nutjob.

What's American for 'Taliban'?

You guys got a passport? If not it might be worth getting one. I hear Canada is a nice place to live.....

Or Europe if you want to live in a Secular Community.... [grin].

Stardust said...

cyberkitten, we have friends in Sweden, and Sweden is looking better and better. Even Canada looks better. If the US keeps progressing in it's fundie ways, we are seriously not going to be able to stay here. It's annoying enough as it is. But like my husband said, 16% evangelicals, if they all rose up together could cause some major shit...like Islam. And if fundies started warring, we would be caught in the middle of that shit. Best to get out of the way before that happens.

Canada is looking great!

Spirula said...

Well, sorry for alerting Stardust to this horrifying Huckabilly comment. Will this "Dino-sluts" link make-up for it?


Stardust said...

Spirula, that is a parody site...click on her profile and check out her other blog Sister Nancy Beth After Dark and she explains. (Unlike Conservatipedia who insists he is not satire)

Spirula said...


I knew it was parody, I was just trying to bring in some off topic humor to a sickening subject (the Talibangical position of Huckabee. Who, by the way, will not get the nominee but will damage the GOP enough to bring out the votes for the Dems).

Stardust said...

spirula, oh...oops. LOL!

It's hard to tell via internet conversations sometimes. That is a pretty amusing site, cosmetics and Jeebus. LOL! MaryKay comes to mind...Jeebus and make up products.

I will probably check that site often. She's pretty good at satire.

I went onto Huckabee's campaign web site and checked out a bunch of bloggers listed on the campaign's blogroll to see their reaction to this, but I didn't see a single one address it.

Huckabee seems to want fundamentalism. It could never happen, even if Huckabilly really wanted to do it. I don't think he does, he just wants the votes from those who do. He's not stupid enough to want it or to try to do it as POTUS, he's just stupid enough to say it.

Huckleberry is too conservative on religion and too liberal on criminals and the economy and immigration.

Huckabye? Huckabee wants to have adulterers, homosexuals and rape victims stoned to death. He also wants to make alcohol and music videos illegal, and make women 2nd class citizens and to take all girls out of school.

Oops, my bad, that's another 'religion'.

Hey, anybody but the PIAPS!

if you’re MAD
punish your country
VOTE for Hillary

I agree with you, Starry.
The more we make fun of this guy, the more we tell people about what this clown wants to do, the less chance this diaster waiting to happen has of becoming the repug nominee, nevermind the president of Theorica!
