The Corner

The one and only.

From a McCain Supporter


The mockers [of Huckabee] are just reminding Christians why they prefer a Christian in the first place — not so much because they want to exclude others, but because they’re afraid of being excluded by people who obviously hate them, and hate them with a passion.  (Make that ‘them’ ‘us’).

I cannot completely disagree with the line of thinking, although I do wish he’d stop swinging his cross around (figuratively!) quite so liberally when his goal is to win an election. If Huckabee is a good Christian, I’m happy for him. I want to be a good Christian, too. That doesn’t mean I can turn a blind eye to his tax-increases or support of a national smoking ban.
