Brief Blog Break

I have more to read, write and process than I can handle right now, and something will have to be sacrificed. Consequently, Sunclipse is going on hiatus until next week. I leave you today (imagine my Charles Kuralt voice speaking these words) with this thought-provoking quotation from presidential candidate Mike Huckabee:

I have opponents in this race who do not want to change the Constitution. But I believe it’s a lot easier to change the Constitution than it would be to change the word of the living Allah. And that’s what we need to do — to amend the Constitution so it’s in Allah’s standards rather than try to change Allah’s standards so it lines up with some contemporary view.

Quotation guaranteed accurate.

  1. True Republicans Barry Goldwater and Teddy Roosevelt warned us about injecting religion into American politics. After the decimation of our party by W and Lott and Delay and the rest of the Southern Republicans, if Huckabee is the nominee I fear they’ll be no more GOP north of the Mason-Dixon. The last Republican in NY, please shut out the lights.

  2. I keep hearing about Barry Goldwater. What makes him different from McCarthy or Reagan or the various and sundry dog-whistle theocrats of the past thirty years? People say they’re Goldwater Republicans, and then they spout off the same exact fearmongering talking points as everyone else. Just give it up, guys. When you call yourself a Republican it means you’re a Fascist or a Theocrat. Those are your options.

  3. There was a time when being a Democrat meant you called the Civil War “The War of Northern Aggression” and thought white sheets were a smashing fashion accessory to complement burning crosses. I wouldn’t be so cocky if I were you, especially since the Republicans are the only thing making the Democrats look good.

    And stogoe, you don’t understand what Fascism is. I recommend that you learn, before the real thing decides to show itself to you by taking control of your country.

  4. The cries against Huckabee among the GOP country-club set evoke little sympathy from me. The Republicans built their entire political ascent by relentlessly appealing the lowest common denominator. Now, all those years they spent courting fundagelical bigots by stoking their persecution fantasies and demonizing gays are coming back to bite them in the ass. Sorry guys, you made your bad, now the rest the laugh while you desperately try to uncrap it.
