The evil "Christian" heart of Mike Huckabee
Posted by Jill | 12:09 PM
Perhaps it's unseemly to post this during Senator Kennedy's funeral, but I think it's important to keep in mind the kind of vile, mean-spirited people that populate the Republican political establishment...and to vow to never, ever, ever let these pieces of shit ever gain power over our lives again.

Today's "honoree": Mike Huckabee:
The 2008 Republican presidential candidate suggested during his radio show, "The Huckabee Report," on Thursday that, under President Obama's health care plan, Kennedy would have been told to "go home to take pain pills and die" during his last year of life.

"[I]t was President Obama himself who suggested that seniors who don't have as long to live might want to consider just taking a pain pill instead of getting an expensive operation to cure them," said Huckabee. "Yet when Sen. Kennedy was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer at 77, did he give up on life and go home to take pain pills and die? Of course not. He freely did what most of us would do. He choose an expensive operation and painful follow up treatments. He saw his work as vitally important and so he fought for every minute he could stay on this earth doing it. He would be a very fortunate man if his heroic last few months were what future generations remember him most for."

That's the Republican meme now: Barack Obama would have killed Ted Kennedy.

There are no words for these people.

UPDATE: Let's not forget the maverickyness of John McCain, as he snubs Sen. Kennedy's widow last night:

Oh, there are words. Mostly, though, I shy away from using them, since they summon demons.

is there something going on there? or is he just deaf and old and on his way out...?
Its possible that he didn't get that he was supposed to hug her because he is senile and cancer riddled?

Or does he hate her?
I missed any mention of Joan, that's for sure....not that it was warranted, but she was the mother of his kids, so just wiping her from history is sorta strange.

I missed his speech and am hard pressed to seek itout...

Joan was there. I was watching on a channel that kept pixilating, but the commentator mentioned her.

I understand the transformative influence Vicki had on Ted; still, I thought Joan was short-changed. My dad had a great second "mature" marriage, but my mom genuinely grieved when he died. She was the mother of his four children.

John McCain gave the impression he really wasn't an intimate friend of Ted's, or maybe they had been boozing, womanizing pals before Ted sobered up with Vicki. Orrin Hatch did seem to have a special, oddball relationship & a deep affection for Ted.
