One nation, under desks ...

I know. I'm obsessed on the subject, but still fascinated about how such a rhetoric expert as Mike Huckabee could fall so in love with such a nonsensical story that he would trot it out again, at length, for the Republican National Convention. Now comes, again, James Fallows of The Atlantic to dig deeper into the mystifying Mike Huckabee desk parable. He finds -- though it's still a head-scratcher on any surface evaluation -- that there is a theological explanation. It's an evangelical  dog whistle. This link includes a link to our earlier, fuller coverage.
