Mike Huckabee’s latest manifestation of the scandal of the evangelical mind:
There’s a sense in which all these years the evangelicals have been treated very kindly by the Republican Party. They wanted us to be a part of it. And then one day one of us actually runs, and they say, Oh, my gosh. Now they’re serious. They don’t want to just show up and vote. They actually would want to be a part of the discussion, and really talk about issues that include hunger and poverty and things that ought to be really a concern to every American, Democrat or Republican, liberal or conservative.
I guess copying nanny-state policies and identity-candidate politics from the left also means trying to grab a corner of the mantle of victimhood.
