God and rock'n'roll were invoked by the Republican Mike Huckabee in his final campaign rally in Iowa, with quotes from the Book of Isaiah and calls for tonight's caucus-goers to get on their knees to ask for God's wisdom.

The former governor of Arkansas and Baptist preacher then strapped on a bass guitar to join bad actor with bigoted viewthe Boogie-Woogers in Sweet Home Alabama, Twist and Shout and Blue Suede Shoes.

shit, that sounds awful.

Chuck Norris doesn't go hunting. That implies the risk of failure. Chuck Norris goes killing.

When Chuck Norris was born he immediatly shagged the mid wife. That was the second women he had sex with.

I'm also going for the following, Mary didn't have an emaculate conception, Chuck Norris's sperm is so powerful it managed to impregnate some broad 2000 years before he was even born!!

Hey that's my believes, respect em!

On a more serious side is there anyway we can ignore america if he wins? (yes i know he won't but...) i mean it would be kinda embarrasing hanging round em

As an Iowan who will be at the caucus tonight (my first one), I can at least assure everyone here I won't be voting for Huckabee.

I dunno, a small part of me kind of wants the next American president to be some sort of Christian comedy figure. If someone sensible gets in we'll be losing some great satire on the TV over here in Britain. I don't think I'd be happy with any of them as the next US leader, to be honest.

Huckabee is part of a battle for a new direction for the post-Bush Republican party.

What new direction would that be: downward or very f#cking downward?

Mike Huckabee is an idiot, but Chuck Norris is an even bigger one for supporting his campaign. Great way to insult everyone and bring in the vulgar by pimping your faith and performing a rock concert. Again, faith is not a virtue nor is it adequate criteria to pick a president. It reqires the suspension of reason and the suppresion or flat our ignoring of evidence. If we're electing Presidents on this criteria, we might as well elect them based on stupidity or leave the dolt that we already have in office.

I hope I still live in a Britain in which a campaigning politician would be savaged for this.

Huckabee, who believes in creationism - that the world was created by God in seven days
And that.

"I am not asking to rule but to serve. You are the ruling class."
Hang on...:

quotes from the Book of Isaiah and calls for tonight's caucus-goers to get on their knees to ask for God's wisdom.

So, God's to make all the decisions and the people are to respond to His wisdom. Just what sort of responsibility does Huckabee see for himself in his presidency? Strumming his gee-tarr and cuddling Chuck Norris?

Ah well. It's all entertainment, I suppose. But if he gets in, I'm moving to Gliese 581c .

Hey theantitheist,
it's worth knowing that the immaculate conception wasn't the conception of Jesus - it was the conception of Mary (according to Catholic dogma). Them fruitcakes reckon we are all born into sin due to two people in a garden thinking that they might like to better themselves and learn some stuff, but the big bad dog turns around and says "no - I want you to remain ignorant and stupid" and so punishes humankind to be forever with sin.

Due to the immaculate conception Mary was without sin, so when god got her knocked up at a party, after he'd given her a few drinks and slipped some rohipnol in there, Jesus too was without sin.

Don't ask me to explain this stupidity, it's not my make believe friend. I can understand why somebody not of the religion might not know the difference between the immaculate conception and the virgin birth, but the funny thing is that most religious people aren't aware of the difference.

zenmite's Avatar Comment 26 by zenmite

I told my wife a couple of weeks ago; I like Mike Huckabee, and that scares me. It scares me because that may mean he has more of a chance at actually winning the nomination or even the presidency. Unlike Bush, Huckabee can put two sentences together and he has a certain degree of self-depracating charm, even clintonesque in some ways. He appeared on Bill Maher a few weeks ago and seemed to charm that (presumably) hostile audience. Remember, in america, it's all about the charm and confidence...the guy / gal you'd feel comfortable having a beer with, etc. Never mind any substance.

Don't get me wrong. I'd be horrified if Huckabee wins. I disagree with him on nearly everything. But he shouldn't be taken lightly.

Sorry, that's just crazy, however due to the even wierder stuff they believe i did check it out with my fundamentalist catholic boss who's studying theology (I know it's not a proper study). If it was Mary who was immaculatly conceived and Jesus was through the whole Joseph not being the daddy thing then it would be incest on a cosmic scale. Though let's face it that's minor when it comes to religious crimes.
