Just in case Huckabee's bass-playing ever distracts you from his intentions to start tearing the whole place down once he's elected President, Talking Points Memo has got this post up today:

Huck: We Need To Amend The Constitution, Bring It In Line With God
By Eric Kleefeld - January 15, 2008, 1:00PM

At a Michigan campaign event last night, Mike Huckabee gave an interesting reason for why he wants to amend the Constitution to ban both abortion and gay marriage: Otherwise, the Constitution would be in conflict with God.

Huckabee first observed that some of his opponents don't want to amend the Constitution on both of these topics. "But I believe it's a lot easier to change the Constitution than it would be to change the word of the living God," Huckabee said. "And that's what we need to do, is to amend the Constitution so it's in God's standards rather than try to change God's standards."

Huckabee's platform: "I want to be president of the United States because it hasn't been destroyed enough."

Here's the link to TPM's post on the subject.

Can we afford another President who jettisons reason and logic because he listens instead to the magical word of "the living God?"
