Mike Huckabee Campaigns For For Iowa Anti-Gay Marriage Candidate

Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee went to Iowa Wednesday to support the gubernatorial candidacy of businessman Bob Vander Plaats,who is a heinous and the vociferous opponent of gay marriage and gay rights

Speaking to a crowd of about 100 like minded homophobic assholes at a fundraiser for the Iowa Family PAC, the political action committee managed by the Iowa Family Policy Center Action, a group that opposes gay rights, Huckabee called Vander Plaats an ideal candidate. (Where I would ideally call him “Satan”)

While all Republican Iowa gubernatorial candidates have sided with social conservatives who are rankled
at Democratic leaders for blocking a resolution calling for an amendment in the Iowa constitution that would ban gay marriage and reverse last year’s state Supreme Court order legalizing the institution, Vander Plaats, who often speaks about the issue at anti-gay marriage rallies, has a padlock on the issue. He’s pledged, if elected, to halt gay weddings with an executive order until the issue is decided by voters. Most analysts have said such a move would not be legal.

“Having been a governor for 10 and a half years, I think I know something about the qualities that make for a good governor. I find every one in Bob,” Huckabee said.  (I suppose that means he’ll pardon someone who’ll go out and kill some cops in the future, eh Fuckabee?)

Huckabee, a  former Baptist ministe, and current asshole does not believe gays should be allowed to serve in the military and supports a constitutional amendment defining marriage as a heterosexual union and in November, he told CBS’ Katie Couric that if you alter marriage to include gay couples “then there is really no limit” to how it might be defined and suggested polygamy would soon follow.

Huck off, Fuckabee!

(Althought the idea of being married to two guys at once is intriguing.  I call James Franco and Danny Craig!)
