Today's sign of the apocalypse

Arkansas ex-Governor Mike Huckabee is nearly tied with Rudy Giuliani among Republican candidates for president.

Huckabee is a right-wing pro-life Bible banger, but from a policy standpoint he's Jimmy Carter with darker hair. He wants to raise taxes (the Fair Tax, that will absolutely hammer lower-income Americans), is weak on defense and frames issues in a left-wing Carterian manner (see his Foreign Affairs article), and is far more of a religious zealot than the worst portrayals of Pres. Bush. As a candidate for office, he's awful. As a Republican, he's an abomination.

Hopefully, he'll be exposed soon as the fraud he is and will collapse in Iowa like Howard Dean did in '04.
