Oh noes!

I can't believe Huckabee actually said this:

I have opponents in this race who do not want to change the Constitution. But I believe it's a lot easier to change the Constitution than it would be to change the word of the living God. And that's what we need to do is amend the Constitution so it's in God's standards rather than trying to change God's standards so it lines up with some contemporary view of how we treat each other and how we treat the family.

I'm gonna make a burqa out of a bedspread, just in case.

Just to remind you, when Huckabee says "family", he means a very specific kind of a family, with a man-priest leading the little flock and the woman gracefully submitting to his leadership. And no homos marrying, naturally. But the deeper reading is also important.

Some Republican heads will now explode, because the plan was to use the fundamentalists and not to actually turn the party over to them.
