Your Republican Front-Runner, Mike “Pol Pot” Huckabee

Conservative non-scholars (redundant?) like to praise conservative crackpot David Barton and his fantasy-fiction as history. Plus, we all know there isn’t a conservative politician alive who doesn’t proclaim the Second Amendment the greatest single piece of over-compensation ever given to poorly endowed ‘Muricans by the hand of God (hey…kinky).

Most importantly, when you are able to combine these two dementias into one sound bite, you are clearly worthy of being the Republican front-runner:

“I just wish that every single young person in America would be able to be under his [Barton’s] tutelage and understand something about who we really are as a nation. I almost wish that there would be something like a simultaneous telecast and all Americans would be forced, forced — at gun point no less — to listen to every David Barton message. And I think our country would be better for it. I wish it’d happen.”

I suppose it is possible to argue (after all, see above) that wishing Americans be indoctrinated at gun point was somehow taken out of context (as opposed to being plainly fucking nuts) which is why it was later edited out of the video. Better get CNN’s Joe Johns on this one.

Nice interview: Ron Paul and Tavis Smiley



In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
