I had some qualms about the stimulus bill, but now that I hear what Huckabee has to say I think we need two of these damn things:

Huckabee: Stimulus is 'anti-religious'
Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee warned supporters Tuesday that the $828 billion stimulus package is “anti-religious.

In an e-mail that was also posted on his blog ahead of the Senate’s passage, Huckabee wrote: “The dust is settling on the ‘bipartisan’ stimulus bill and one thing is clear: It is anti-religious.”

The former Republican presidential candidate pointed to a provision in both the House and Senate versions banning higher education funds in the bill from being used on a “school or department of divinity.”

Huckabee's incredible powers of insight do not fail him:

“You would think the ACLU drafted this bill,” Huckabee said. “For all of the talk about bipartisanship, this Congress is blatantly liberal.”

One note and one question to the rightwing twits in this country.

The Note: the Party of God lost the last election. Got its ass handed to it. Totally and utterly got the stiff-arm re-j. This means the commie libs are in control, like it or not Turns out real Americans didn't want the Taliban using federal tax money to set up Baptist madrassas.

The question: why the fuck should the people who won the election be bipartisan with the rump extremist element left behind in Congress? Bipartisanship is just another word for getting cornholed. There was zero talk of bipartisanship when the Party of God was dismantling the rule of law in America and all of the various other legacies of the Bush years. I am not alone in noting that suddenly these craven piles of shit are demanding (yes, actually demanding) bipartisan consideration. Obama is too "articulate" to say it straight, but here it is: go fuck yourselves!

Then Huckabee rounds it out with a howler:

'“This is the opening round of the Democrats’ campaign for big government,” he wrote. “We cannot afford to sit round one out, because if we do, they will only become more emboldened and their grab for power more audacious and damaging to our country and our freedoms.”"
