Unlike with the Iraq War, the Republicans undoubtedly have a Plan B re: Mike Huckabee. And he for them.

Right now, there's a full-on freakout in the national GOP about the Huckster's ascendancy.

Peggy Noonan, who once thought it was irresponsible not to transubstantiate, literally says "bleh" to Huck's appeals to heavenly authority. (h/t C&L)

But let's fast-forward to Lourdes, or wherever the Republicans are holding their convention.

If Mike's deity has delivered him the delegates, do you seriously imagine anything other than the biggest authoritarian circlejerk this side of Stalinville?

Do you expect party leaders to do something other than rally around their latest vehicle for flying rich men through the eye of a golden needle at NASCAR speed?

Do you expect Mike to be the fiscal liberal (i.e., humane and budget-balancing) he's being made out to be? Do you expect him to be a thorn in the side of the neo-cons?

If you do, I've got some ancient Middle Eastern myths I can sell you....

They may hate each other, but if they spot us, they'll put that hate aside in a heartbeat, in service to an even greater hate. Good times.

We. Are. Going. To. Die. We must restore hope in the world. We must bring forth a new way of living that can sustain the world. Or else it is not just us who will die but everyone. What have we got to lose? Go forth and Fight!—Xan
