Good thing there's that 2/3 majority rule thingy

Just so we remember what's at stake this year.

"I have opponents in this race who do not want to change the Constitution," Huckabee told a Michigan audience on Monday. "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 -- to amend the Constitution so it's in God's standards rather than try to change God's standards so it lines up with some contemporary view."
Republican presidential candidate (and, depending on today's Michigan returns, possibly the front-runner) Mike Huckabee.

True Republicans Barry Goldwater and Teddy Roosevelt warned us about injecting religion into American politics. After the decimation of our party by W and Lott and Delay and the rest of the Southern Republicans, if Huckabee is the nominee I fear they'll be no more GOP north of the Mason-Dixon. The last Republican in NY, please shut out the lights.

Thanks for that. Yes, the injunction to avoid mixing politics with religion has, historically, been one that has appeared across party lines. As it should remain.
