Gun advocate, and GOP presidential hopeful, Mike Huckabee says abortion is the “most important issue in the country”. Not the economy. Not the two wars. Abortion.
Sideshow Mike on “The sanctity of human life”:
“I proudly own a variety of firearms . . . My own membership in the NRA is something I cherish and value.” – Mike Huckabee’s blog
Other GOP presidential hopefuls have stressed fiscal and economic issues, but not sideshow Mike. According to him other issues are sooooooooo insignificant by comparison.

Doesn’t Fall Far From the Tree?
As reported here in December 2007, during the 2008 presidential primaries, it came out that, at age 18, Huckabee’s son David had been fired by the Scouts as a camp counselor after he and another counselor captured a stray dog, hanged him by the neck, slit his throat and stoned him to death. The elder Huckabee, who was governor of Arkansas at the time, later fired a local prosecutor who had investigated the matter with the aim of filing animal cruelty charges against David Huckabee and the other boy.
