Would you advertise this?

Posted By on Thu, Nov 8, 2007 at 12:50 PM

Mike Huckabee announces he's been endorsed by the hate-mongering Donald Wildmon of the American Family Association, the Mississippi preacher who sounded the alarm about Tinky Winky, the gay teletubby, and other threats to the family. I stand corrected, it was Jerry Falwell who outed Tinky Winky. Wildmon accused Mighty Mouse of snorting cocaine, tried to stop Calvin Klein from selling children's underwear and said the movie "Shark Tale" was intended to brainwash children about gay rights. Sorry for the error.

UPDATE: But what do I know. The Religious Right rules in Iowa and The Huckster is now in second place.

Back home, the wild and wacky Arkansas Republican Assembly has endorsed, not Huck, but dead man sleepwalking, Fred Thompson.
