'It's the Supreme Court, it's not the supreme branch of government; there are three equal branches, yada yada yada.' Please give it a rest, Mike Huckabee. The sanctimonious father, grifter, preacher and friend to Ted Nugent, is standing up for the rights of thrice divorced, known philanderer and law-breaker Kim Davis. In case you haven't heard, she's the woman who is soaking up the attention in Kentucky by illegally denying gay couples marriage licenses.
It was so considerate this morning, of Joe Scar's loyal sidekick, Mika, not to get into why Kim Davis is a huge hypocrite. Davis, with her very callous disregard for the 'sanctity' of marriage and her proclivity for out-of-wedlock sex wasn't on Mika's agenda, because she wasn't going to offend her delicate sensibilities. That's because a woman who obviously has very flippant views on the Sacrament of marriage by getting on her high horse over her narrow definition of the civil right, isn't at all relevant. I'm glad the show doesn't stoop to such levels, even if they spend 90% of time mercilessly lying about Democrats, especially Hillary Clinton.
For a man running for
higher speaking fees president, Ol' Mikey has a very poor understanding how our Constitution works. Contrary to what his misguided miscreant friend, Kim Davis believes, the Constitution is not based on faith. When the gay couple confronted her, this is what transpired.
“Your interpretation of the Bible doesn’t trump the Constitution,” (marriage license hopeful) Blankenship said.
“Our Constitution was founded on faith,” Davis replied.
Huckabee proclaims 'thank God for Kim Davis.' But even Joe was trying to get across that this SCOTUS ruling IS CONSTITUTIONAL and Davis is in violation of federal law.
Do Huckabee and his 'savior' have a leg to stand on? Legally speaking, not at all. It’s ridiculous,” said David Vladeck, a professor of law at Georgetown. “The Supreme Court says the Fourteenth Amendment requires states to issue licenses .… That is the law of the land. We have something in the Constitution called the Supremacy Clause,” which states that the Constitution is the ultimate authority in the U.S.
Huck went on a tirade about Abraham Lincoln ignoring the deplorable Dred Scott decision when it came to slavery in new U.S. Territory, but he sounded more and more desperate and insane by comparing human slavery to two people tying the knot. Even Scarborough explained that Eisenhower called the National Guard when the Brown vs. Board of Education decision came down, because it is the law of the land. He wasn't buying facts today. His love for his version of his gospel is too much to overcome.
Mike Barnicle, for once, actually asked something noteworthy, which he classified as a non-lawyer question. He said,
'Are the licenses her's or are they the state's?'
To which Huckster replied, 'they belong to the state.' So what's the problem here? Right on cue, Huckabee added, '
for her to fill out with male and female.'
Because that's what Jesus never said. He actually made me laugh when he asked Huckabee if fishing or driver's licenses are next. Hey, why not? The state issues these as well, so why not arbitrarily cite your own 'faith' as a reason to be a stingy asshole.
Huckabee still believes this settled law is long from being settled. He is predicting that Kim Davis may well be the first Christian martyr sent to jail for the pristine conviction of being a bigot. And he was right!
Ed. Update: The court disagrees with Huckabee, and tossed Kim Davis in jail for contempt of court this afternoon.
As expected, here's the former Arkansas Governor's tweet:
