    Re: She could've just had the abortion, asshole

    He's a loon.

    His ideas on marriage - like reinstituting fault-based divorce and the power of "covenant marriage" options in state codes - are pure idiocy and based in fantasy, not fact.

    He also thinks the president grew up in Kenya.

    This will be remembered as the week when Huckabee talked himself out of contention. He's done.

    Well, that's no way to get Sarah Palin's endorsement.

    If there's one way to win votes in this country, it's trashing a beautiful pregnant woman who appears madly in love with the father of her child and who has described motherhood as the height of her career. Solid move there, Huck.

    I guess it's nice to hear that someone besides the gays are ruining marriage for once.

    Huck loves, loves, loves traditional marriage and the restoration of it. He thinks that modern laws have destroyed it. He's 100 percent dead wrong (in fact, traditional marriage is a lot stronger than it was in the '70s, for example). But he's pretty steadfast.

    Hey, at least he's criticizing a real person instead of a TV character's mating choices. Things have improved the past 19 years.

    Furiously "clarifying" his statements today.

    Oh, don't bet on it.

    First, consider the competition.

    And also, remember his target audience: simple farming folk.

    The common clay of the new west.

    You know ....

    I thought after 2008 that Huckleberry had the best chance of any mainstream Republican for 2012; he was going to get his own show on FOX and could've approached the economic crisis in terms of a public-morality issue. (Regardless of the merits of this argument.)

    Instead, it's back to the ol' culture war slop bucket. Yawn.

    I've read speculation that this was a veiled dig at Palin.

    In this day and age he needs to get a grip.

    I'm guessing if Portman could do it all over again, she'd do things in a different order, but she is marrying the guy.

    Never been a Huckabee fan.

    So here's the thing.

    Several red states have instituted a "covenant marriage" option - Huck had a big ceremony where he and his wife put on a show about converting to a "covenant marriage" - that makes it almost impossible to get a divorce, among other things meant to "strengthen" the marriage bond.

    Almost nobody - seriously, statistically almost nobody - elects that option.
