Mike Huckabee is an idiot, and his friends are even worse

by Mike Andrew - SGN Staff Writer

Republican presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee told a Christian media convention that he wishes he could have posed as a Trans woman when he was in high school so he could 'shower with the girls...'

Huckabee's statement to the National Religious Broadcasters Convention in Nashville was made in February, but just came to light because Huckabee fans at World Net Daily posted a video of his speech on their website.

'Now I wish that someone told me that when I was in high school that I could have felt like a woman when it came time to take showers in PE,' Huckabee said. 'I'm pretty sure that I would have found my feminine side and said, 'Coach, I think I'd rather shower with the girls today.'

'You're laughing because it sounds so ridiculous doesn't it? And yet today we are the ones who are ridiculed and scorned because we point out the obvious. 'That there is something inherently wrong about forcing little children to be a part of this social experiment. I'm not against anybody. I'd just like for somebody to bring their brain to work some day and not leave it on the bedstand when they show up to govern.'

Huckabee, a Baptist minister, was Governor of Arkansas from July 15, 1996 through January 8, 2007. In 2008 he tried, but failed to win the Republican presidential nomination. In 2012 there was speculation he would seek the nomination again, but he decided not to do so.

As governor, Huckabee signed legislation banning same-sex marriage, and in recent statements, he called on local officials to refuse to comply with any future court decisions legalizing Gay or Lesbian marriages.

World Net Daily is a right-wing web site perhaps best known for insisting that President Obama was born in Kenya. WND has also called for banning LGBT groups from Republican Party events.

Apparently someone at the web site found Huckabee's puerile remarks about showering with girls to be a fitting response to media coverage of Caitlyn Jenner, and posted a video of the former governor's speech online.

The National Religious Broadcasters organization is committed to the First Amendment meme of anti-Gay bigotry, arguing that 'religious freedom' affords protection to those who want to discriminate against LGBT Americans. Huckabee's speech was right up their alley, as he attacked local non-discrimination ordinances.

'For those who do not think that we are under threat, simply recognize that the fact that we are now in city after city watching ordinances say that your seven-year-old daughter, if she goes into the restroom cannot be offended and you can't be offended if she's greeted there by a 42-year-old man who feels more like a woman than he does a man,' he proclaimed.

Huckabee is currently running fifth in both the ABC News/Washington Post poll, and in one by CNN. He shows support from 9%-10% of respondents.
