Leave Mike Huckabee (and the fourth estate) alone!
Being a professional journalist is a tough job.

The news media establishment which did such yeoman work emasculating Al Gore and disrespecting John Kerry's service to our country has invested its energies into crafting a "Nice Guy" image for Mike Huckabee.

It's hard work creating and mindlessly repeating shallow memes until every soccer-mom and -dad has learned them by heart.

When you thought Scooter Libby should pay for his crimes like any other convict maybe even more so, because he abetted the wrongful killings of hundreds of thousands of people and helped shatter our nation's intelligence apparatus the media told you you wanted him to go free. Think of how it would have hurt their feelings if they'd looked at the polls that showed you'd come to the wrong conclusion.

How about a little compassion, folks? What are you going to do next, ask Joe Klein to read the legislation he writes about? Thoughtless bastards, you are!

Think of the heartache that professional journalists suffered when years of propping up arch-conservative John McCain as a moderate maverick when down the drain as the Straight Talk express sputtered into incoherence and Iraq War boosterism, even after the classes of 2006 and 2007 posed for their yearbook photos.

So when Huckabee claims that Jesus is rigging the polls in his favor and when he says "I feel homosexuality is an aberrant, unnatural, and sinful lifestyle, and we now know it can pose a dangerous public health risk," just remember that it all depends on what your definition of "nice is.

If he lets a serial rapist go free because he attacked a Clinton relative, only to keep on raping and killing, well you cant be much nicer than that, can you?

The definition of "nice" is Mike Huckabee. This I know, because the MSM tells me so.

To say otherwise is aberrant, unnatural, and sinful. So, get with the program, heretic! And be nice about it.

3. Ah, the power of memes
Four more of my "favorites":

"Hillary is polarizing"
"What the world needs now is bipartisanship"
"religion = morality" (Too many examples to link to)
"America is a Christian Nation" (ditto)

These guys just keep catapulting the propaganda...
