Quote# 32411

Gov. Mike Huckabee says he's surrounded by the devil, prompting some Arkansas lawmakers to wonder if he was referring to them.

In an article from a church publication, Mr. Huckabee was quoted saying that "as a pastor, I was surrounded by the things, the people, the language and the architecture of God. As governor, I'm surrounded by the devil."

It is frightening that such an ignorant bigot could even consider running for President.

It is terrifying that there people who would even consider voting for him.

Mike, Mike, Mike. Those are Republicans. They just look that way.

I seem to be surrounded by delusional idiots.

"I weep for you," the Walrus said:
"I deeply sympathize."
With sobs and tears he sorted out
Those of the largest size,
Holding his pocket-handkerchief
Before his streaming eyes.

I am not American, but I really hope this deluded fool is not elected president of the United States.

You're an idiot unable to asume the consequences of your acts. As a pastor, that is not flattering.

12/15/2007 5:19:47 PM

cui bono

why would any person vote for someone who is obviously non compus mentis. Surely he should be committed to some institution not running an institution.

12/15/2007 5:44:29 PM


But if he was completely surrounded by a single person, then that would mean he'd have to be INSIDE the devil.

And I think we can all see where this is heading...

12/15/2007 5:46:20 PM


And this guy has supporters.

Then step off of politics and go back to the pulpit. Actually, I'm not sure you should do that either.

Y'know there's a funny story...

I was recently involved in a debate over here at the college I'm in. We were discussing who was going to be the best candidate for presidency... The person who was arguing Huckabee said that his moderate religious attitude, tempered by reality, made him a prime and pragmatic contender.

... Fortunately, I had pretty much every quote of Huckabee's that has been listed here at FSTDT printed out and with me. Ye Cthul'hu, it felt good to expose that pile of fail for what he is.

Oh course you are surrounded by the devil, you are among right-wing republicans.

Wait, I refreshed this and got a doublepost out of it.

Good luck, America.

If it were anyone else, I'd think it was a joke.

Lewis Black said, circa 1999, in reference to Bill Clinton, that we shouldn't elect another person from Arkansas president for a hundred years.

Personally, I trust Lew.

12/17/2007 3:12:48 AM


Madman! And people actually consider voting for this guy!

12/17/2007 5:22:13 AM


Between this guy and Ron Paul, America is screwed.

12/17/2007 2:07:35 PM


"As governor, I'm surrounded by the devil."

Uh, that would be Arkansans, Mike.

12/17/2007 8:22:14 PM


Maybe he should quit politics and become a pastor! This guy scares me.

1/10/2008 3:09:07 AM


Could he be speaking of a corrupt political process and not necessarily a literal devil?

What, I can't ask?

3/6/2008 7:14:43 PM


Hopefully the morons learned the first time and they won't elect this idiot.
