Wrong As Usual, New York Times!

The New York Times continues its losing streak in trying to tackle the truth. Not only do they miss the forest for the trees; they miss the trees because they’re too busy hugging them. Case in point of these moronics:

And some members of the council have raised doubts about lesser known candidates — Gov. Mike Huckabee of Arkansas and Representative Duncan Hunter of California, who were invited to Amelia Island to address an elite audience of about 60 of its members, and Senator Sam Brownback of Kansas, who spoke to the full council at its previous meeting, in October in Grand Rapids, Mich.

Although each of the three had supporters, many conservatives expressed concerns about whether any of the candidates could unify their movement or raise enough money to overtake the front-runners, several participants in the meetings said.

Anyone who raises any doubts about Brownback’s conservative credentials is certifiable. Anyone who backs Huckabee or Hunter over Brownback will find itself an ally at the Yankee Times:

Mr. Huckabee, a Southern Baptist minister who was the head of the Arkansas Baptist convention before becoming governor, has the advantage of strong personal ties to many council members. Many prominent evangelical Christians consider him a friend, and he has appeared several times as a guest on Dr. Dobson’s popular Christian radio program.

In an interview, Mr. Huckabee said he believed his roots in the evangelical world helped set him apart from his rivals. “I am not going to them,” he said. “I am coming from them.” He said he did not remember speaking about his opposition to abortion or same-sex marriage, “although I am sure that I must have.” He said he emphasized education, among other issues, and talked about a continuing war “with a radical form of Islamic fascism,” which he called “a bastardization of religion.”

Those paragraphs are laughably dishonest. Huckabee hasn’t got one-tenth of Brownback’s record on either Christian conservatism or on the fight against Islamofascism. Brownback was meeting with Ahmed Shah Massoud’s representatives back when Huckabee was still lending his name to moonbat movies.

Brownback is the serious contender on the Islamofascist issues, Brownback is the serious contender on the Feminazi issues, Brownback is the serious contender on restoring faith to America’s way of life. Brownback’s Midwestern Catholicism typifies an ecumenical approach to Christianity far likelier to attract swing voters than is Huckabee’s brash hypocrisy.

I realize this is an election, not a purity contest. But my point is that Brownback could win both, hands down, over Huckabee. Brownback will secure the Christian support, Brownback will secure the nomination, Brownback will secure a lease in the White House, and then Brownback will secure America.

  1. What a crock! First of all, Huckabee is the only candidate any true conservative should support. It’s dishonest of you to argue otherwise, as you even concede the point that Brownback is “ecumenical” (read: watered down).

    Secondly, Huckabee has a great record as the governor of Arkansas, far better than that of the last Arkansas governor to stop in at the White House and far better indeed than an endangered Senator from a newly-RINO’d state. When was the last time a Senator won the White House? Do we really want to field a John Kerry in 2008?

    I hate Clinton on every level. But he certainly showed us all that a successful governorship is the proper path to the Oval Office. His example was preceded by a man named Ronald Reagan. His example was followed by that of another governor: George W. Bush. Brownback wouldn’t stand a chance against any of these three men, two of them because they are more principled and one of them because he’d lie loops around the dogged dullard.

    Huckabee has the charisma, drive, and passionate commitment to values to win the nomination and the Presidency. While I agree with Brownback on many issues, to pretend that he’s not a flawed candidate running a doomed campaign is nothing less than absurd.

  2. How dumb do they think we are? How dumb? They want to put up a guy who used to do fundraisers for Ted Kennedy, or a thrice-married New Yorker who lived with his gay friends, or a guy who spent the whole year of 2000 trashing Christian conservatives…and we’re supposed to get behind that.

    Look, Huckabeeite. Your candidate is inferior. Get over it.

    How dumb do they think we are? How dumb?”

    “Pretty dumb, apparently. Then again, what do you expect from a conglomeration of RINOs?

  4. Huckleberry Hound lovers should stick with Hanna Barbara cartoons and leave politics to the adults.

    If you heart huckleberry, why don’t you marry him?

  5. I think we’ve seen the last of that Huckabee hustler, after the thrashing we’ve doled out to him.

  6. Eat a huckleberry pie, Huckawee. Go back to Hollyweird, lame-o! We already had a President from Arkansass and it wasn’t pretty. Shrillary / Huckabee? Coincidence? I think not!
