Huckabee Offically a Whack Job

While I would have never voted for Mike Huckabee in a general election pretty much regardless of who the Democratic nominee was, I had always thought that he was somewhat respectable. I don't agree with his politics 90% of the time, but you can disagree with someone while still having some respect for them.

Well, that respect is completely gone now, and Mike Huckabee has officially moved into the Kool-aid drinking, wingnuttery end of the Republican party in my book.

It turns out that back in 1992, well after we understood how HIV/AIDS was transmitted, Huckabee advocated rounding up all of the Americans living with HIV/AIDS and detaining them until they quietly died so they could not accidentally breath on us or something and infect the entire world.

Not only that, but he also said that no federal funding should be spent on research on a vaccination or cure for the disease.

at first I figured that he would come out saying something about how his ideas had changed and that Americans living with HIV/AIDS are not the dirty little homosexual or drug shooting beasts he had once thought they were, but Huckabee decided to stick by his 1992 comments.

It is disgusting to think any leader of this country to think that way and advocate locking away hundreds of thousands of sick Americans just be cause he thinks he can catch it by touching a hand rail or using the same restroom.

But, that is what you get from the party that has brought us 7 years of Bush.

Today on the presidential campaign trail
