Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Huckabee

Posted By on Fri, Sep 22, 2006 at 3:45 PM

Once again this week, the two faces of The Huckster are on display. The governor who went to libertarian New Hampshire in moderate New England and said he could find room in his heart for a union of two people of the same sex, though none dare call it marriage, threw out red meat today at the Religious Fuhrer Dobson's family values fest up in Washington today.

People for the American Way is covering the hatefest. They said Huckabee feinted positive, but gave the yowling crowd this on marriage:

Until Moses comes down from Brokeback Mountain with two stone tablets saying we've changed the rules, let's keep it like it is!

Hotline, meanwhile, continues to suck Huckabee spin with sycophantic coverage of the same event. The Huckophant who covered claimed the Huckster wasn't pandering when the quotes indicate otherwise.
