Huckagoguing

The only surprise is that it took the governor a full 24 hours to join the gay-bashing chorus on the Supreme Court ruling on foster parents yesterday. But he clearly got his quote from the same talking point factory other Republicans have used. The chant is that  the court had placed the interests of gay people ahead of children.

Read the opinion, governor, A$a, Jim, Gunner, et. al.. It was precisely because the state failed to consider children first that the rule was struck down. And the little matter of separation of powers.

The good news is that -- while Huckabee can talk all he wants about what the legislature should do in January -- he won't be around to help.

He's having reporters in to the Mansion at 3 p.m. today to talk about his Asian trip. Drop by if you have anything you'd like to ask him.
