Rand Paul must be really feeling the Conway heat and has now enlisted the help of FOX Newsie Mike Huckabee to save his soul. Huckabee recorded a robo-call and attacked Conway for the Aqua Buddha ad and says this:

* Mike Huckabee has recorded a radio ad and a robocall for Kentucky GOP Senate candidate Rand Paul, in which the former presidential hopeful says Democrat Jack Conway should "repent" for a "classless attack" on Paul's religion.

Repent all sinners or burn in hell. But was Huckabee a good choice to take up Baby Paul's defense? I don't think so. You see, the Huckster went after Mitt very hard on the 2008 Republican Presidential primary over religious matters all by himself.

Republican Mitt Romney retorted to questions about his faith by surging rival Mike Huckabee on Wednesday, declaring that "attacking someone's religion is really going too far."

In an article to be published Sunday in The New York Times, Huckabee, an ordained Southern Baptist minister, asks, "Don't Mormons believe that Jesus and the devil are brothers?"

Romney, vying to become the first Mormon elected president, declined to answer that question during an interview Wednesday, saying church leaders in Salt Lake City had already addressed the topic.

"But I think attacking someone's religion is really going too far. It's just not the American way, and I think people will reject that," Romney told NBC's "Today" show.

Many Christians don't believe Mormonism is a legitimate religion, so I imagine Romney's religion will be featured in one form or another when the 2012 presidential election season kicks in. Remember when James Dobson had to make nice with Glenn Beck?
