Huckabee demonstrates what a wonderful man he is

Warning: Harsh Language Ahead.

Believe it or not, given the constant Bible quoting, but only one of the Republican candidates for President is an honest to goodness Minister! Bet you can't guess which one of the lying, racist misogynists it is!

Oh, right, Mike Huckabee. You can tell he's a Minister because he says loving, Christian things like this tweet about President Obama's welcome of the Pope.

Oh, snap!

In fact, here is the POTUS, preparing to spit on the Pope as he coldly greets him at the airport.

It's a wonder the Pope survived.

But lest you think Huckabee is getting soft by that lukewarm insult, he pulled out all the stops in criticizing the idea that the United States, the shining beacon on the hill, the "give us your tired, your poor, your huddled masses" country would give sanctuary to even a few of the desperate, tired, poor middle eastern refugees fleeing war and death in their home countries.
"Are they really escaping tyranny, are they escaping poverty, or are they really just coming because we've got cable TV?" the former governor of Arkansas asked. "I don't mean to be trite. I'm just saying: We don't know."  Link

There's only one thing you can say to that. 

Fuck you, you asshole, Huckabee. Fuck. You.

What's really terrifying about Huckabee is that he's not the worst!

The stupidest, yes, very likely.

But Santorum is the worst.

Indeed, the Republicans have a deep bench. Of horrible candidates.

People may not like Clinton or Sanders, but they're not terrible people. They care about other people and making their lives better. I don't think I can honestly say the same of any of the Republicans. Their only interests seem to be in making rich people richer and restricting the rights of women and minorities. All of their policies are based around these ideas.
