Wiener of the Week

This week the wiener of the week is Mike Huckabee. Stupid Huckabee just couldn't leave well-enough alone. Mitt Romney had succeeded with his speach last week in stirring up all of the necessary doubts about his religion - but Huckabee just HAD to put his ignorant two cents in.

I asked Huckabee, who describes himself as the only Republican candidate with a degree in theology, if he considered Mormonism a cult or a religion. ‘‘I think it’s a religion,’’ he said. ‘‘I really don’t know much about it.’’

I was about to jot down this piece of boilerplate when Huckabee surprised me with a question of his own: ‘‘Don’t Mormons,’’ he asked in an innocent voice, ‘‘believe that Jesus and the devil are brothers?’’
Now, understand that I'm no Huckabee fan - I'm a Ron Paul guy. But talk about taking gold and turning it into mierda. For abject stupidity in the face of a gift horse, Mike Huckabee is my wiener of the week.
