Mike Huckabee is an Awful Human Being and Needs to Go

Mike Huckabee did not distinguish himself last night on The Donald Trump Show, otherwise known as the GOP debate. He was barely noticed and contributed little. I suspect people, even in his own party, but certainly at CNN, have drawn the correct conclusions about the former Arkansas governor: he is an intellectual lightweight.

He demonstrated several degrees of “out there” after Obama’s announcement about taking in Syrian refugees by suggesting Monday at the Eagle Forum that the Syrians fleeing the violence in their homeland just want to come here for our cable TV:

“Are they really escaping tyranny, are they escaping poverty, or are they really just coming because we’ve got cable TV? I’m not trying to be trite, I just don’t know.”

If you don’t know, it’s because you are a dumb*ss. But then you’ve already demonstrated this by claiming Kim Davis imposing her religious views on other people is a demonstration not of religious tyranny but of religious freedom. Last night you asked,

I have an answer, and it comes out of the mouth of Thomas Jeffersion: that if “our civil rights have no dependence on our religious opinions,” how much less do they depend on another’s religious opinion?

Unsurprisingly, Huckabee found himself tweeting for cash last night for his foundering campaign:

Look: arguing that Syrian refugees are only here for our cable TV – well, you can’t say that’s higher ground. You just can’t. Syria is being torn apart by civil war. These people don’t want cable TV. They want to keep breathing. They want to live. They want their children to live, just like you’d want your children to live.

In fact, the ground Mike Huckabee is standing on can’t be lower. He’s even talked himself into believing rejecting Syrian refugees is the Christian thing to do. The verdict is clear: Huckabee, as well as being an intellectual lightweight, is an awful human being.

Do you remember this episode of M.A.S.H., Dr. Pierce and Mr. Hyde, which aired in 1973? The photo below really says it all:

Let’s face it, the last person a presidential candidate should want to be compared to is somebody who thinks the Chinese and North Koreans were fighting us to get our modern toilet facilities. Yet that is what Mike Huckabee has done by saying Syrian refugees want our cable TV.

That’s sitcom material. Not a political platform.

Huckabee’s critical tweet last night went right over his own head, when he said,

That person last night was Mike Huckabee. There are easily a baker’s dozen who were on that stage last night who didn’t belong there and they all proved it, but some are clearly beyond their expiration date.

Mike Huckabee has amply demonstrated has lack of presidential bona fides over the span of two debates and appalling comments in between.

I’ve already suggested that Rick Santorum missed his cue to exit stage right. After last night, Scott Walker must immediately join him. Huckabee needs to tag along like the afterthought he is.
