Huckabee Watch

So far, it was all about how Huckabee was "folksy", but now the dirt starts flowing.

In a response to a questionnaire when he was running for US Senate, Huckabee has this to say:
It is difficult to understandth e public policy towards AIDS -- it is the first time in the history of civilization in which the carriers of a genuine plague have not been isolatedf rom the generalp opuiation,a nd in which this deadlyd iseasefo r which there is no cure is being treated as a civii rights issue instead of the true health crisis it represents.

This four years after the surgeon general clarified that AIDS is not spread by casual contact.

But the saga goes on ...

Turns out Huckabee was one of the signatories of a Southern Baptist Convention ad that has this to say:
You are right because you called wives to graciously submit to their husband's sacrificial leadership.

(To be fair, the next line says that husband and wife are equal before God)

I'll keep my eye out for more zanies from Mike.
