Taking Christ out of Christmas
ABC’s Note seems a little perplexed by Mike Huckabee’s recent ad:
Tomorrow in Iowa, New Hampshire, and South Carolina, former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee launches a new TV ad called “What Really Matters.”
Watch it HERE.
With “Silent Night” strumming as soothing background music, Huckabee tells voters he doesn’t blame them if they’re “worn out” from all the political ads.
As the camera pans to reveal a Christmas tree behind him, the former Baptist minister says that at this time of year “what really matters is the celebration of the birth of Christ and being with our family and our friends.”
I cannot remember a presidential candidate ever invoking Christ in a TV ad before.
I hope ABC is as amazed when a candidate mentions Martin Luther King Jr. in an ad on Martin Luther King’s birthday.
