Funnier every day. The latest comes from the Washington Post via Mike Huckabee, or maybe we should make that Mike Huckabee via the Washington Post: "81 things that Mike Huckabee has denounced" — an incomplete list, including …
1.) Dancing, in general. "Christian teens stay away." (1973)
3.) Same-sex marriage.
12.) Republicans who criticize President Obama constantly. "It's hypocritical..to question every motive of Barack Obama." (2009)
13.) President Obama, for bowing too low when he met the Emperor of Japan. "That deep bow, to the waist ... was offensive to me." (2009, spoken roughly 50 seconds after #12).
15.) Biscuits and gravy. "My mortal enemy." (2007, after Huckabee's major weight loss)
16.) Restaurants that don't serve biscuits and gravy. "How can an eating place that fancies itself fancy...not have biscuits and gravy?" (2015, in his book "God, Guns, Grits and Gravy.").
17.) This list, which is an annotated catalog of things and people that Huckabee has over the last four decades decried as unwise, unhealthy, un-conservative, un-Biblical or un-American. It runs to 81 items. Which is not all of them. But it's enough to show the risk of a life spent passing moral judgments for political gain.
The list then proceeds to itemize 64 others, which, by way of reminder, is not all of them. But it's enough to show the risk of a life spent passing moral judgments for political gain.
