While driving to work this morning, I heard an interview with Mike Huckabee on NPR’s Morning Edition. In the interview, he displayed one of the myriad reasons why I won’t vote for him.
“We don’t know who these people are,” the former Arkansas governor told NPR’s Morning Edition. “I personally wish all of this were outlawed. I think that every candidate ought to speak for himself…Candidates can’t force these … special interest groups to stop,” he said. “I wish we could, because frankly, they’re not doing me a favor by carrying out things and tactics that I don’t personally agree with.”
That’s right, folks. Citizens exercising their rights of free speech aren’t doing Mike Huckabee any favors. That means we should limit their freedom of speech by forcing them to stop. That’s great.
Apparently, you don’t have to understand constitutional law to become an evangelical minister.
