Mike Huckabee, How Very (Un)Forgiving of a Professed Christian

Mike Huckabee, darling of the Christian right, has been quoted as saying of Julian Assange: "anything less than execution is too kind a penalty"
In an article published by the UK Guardian, Mike Huckabee, darling of the Christian right, has been quoted as saying of Julian Assange: "anything less than execution is too kind a penalty". In this one statement, Huckabee has completely shown his true colors as a Washington boot licking political hack completely lacking in any Christian virtues whatsoever. Mike Huckabee ought to be ashamed of himself for this statement reminiscent of Jerry Falwell's statement that anyone who claims to have had contact with ETs should be prosecuted. In any event we can be thankful that Huckabee has shown himself to be the straw-man politician the ersatz Republican party has stuffed the wings to replace Barack Obama with the no-change, same old, same old political status qo. On the other hand, maybe Huckabee, along with Libermann and Palin, will end up as WikiLeaks political casualties, demonstrating complete mental incompetence while screaming their heads off that somehow Humpty Dumpty can be put back together - or a million cats rounded up and put back into the bag. Then again, when you build a house out of cards, what can you expect. I expect to see an end for these politicians similar to Eugene McCarthy. Madness is as madness does.
