Mike Huckabee, Esq.

Posted By on Mon, Feb 11, 2008 at 11:55 AM

Speaking at Jerry Falwell's church in Virginia Sunday, the candidate offered advice on the law:

Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee has won electoral contests by focusing his pitch to religious conservatives around the country. And in a Sunday visit to the church of the deceased Rev. Jerry Falwell, Huckabee threw that base some more red meat.


 "We really don’t need a lot of law if we’re people of morality," Huckabee said at the Thomas Road Baptist Church in Lynchburg, Virginia, according to a report in the Lynchburg News Advance. "There are only 10 basic laws that we need … the reason that the law is more complicated is because we try to find clever ways around those 10."

Additional reports at CBS News showed Huckabee taking his statement a step farther.

"I hope you know Jesus Christ personally…because the level to which he rules you and governs you, you need less and less of man’s law to tell you how to live and that is what our Founding Fathers understood and we must understand," he preached.

ALSO: Huckabee got the endorsement today of conservative bigshot Paul Weyrich, who had been a Romney backer. Another good reason to support McCain.

Some quick ideas on that:
