So, Huckabee-affiliated push pollers are informing South Carolina voters that “McCain voted to allow scientific experiments to be done on unborn children.” But no, slimy negative campaigners, it’s worse than that! McCain didn’t vote to allow scientists to experiment on unborn children; they’re already allowed to do that. He voted to fund such experiments. Clearly, he is the moral equivalent of Dr. Mengele.
But at least those campaigners aren’t actually a part of the Huckabee campaign. Huckabee himself, however, is, and had these kind words for gays and lesbians:
Well, I don’t think that’s a radical view to say we’re going to affirm marriage. I think the radical view is to say that we’re going to change the definition of marriage so that it can mean two men, two women, a man and three women, a man and a child, a man and animal.
Careful, Mike; surely you know what happened the last time a major national conservative politician compared gay sex to bestiality. “Huckabee” isn’t quite as silly a word as “Santorum”, but I don’t think that’ll stop Dan Savage.
