Mike Huckabee Quits Presidential Race, Can Now Spend More Time Peddling Bogus Diabetes Cures
Mike Huckabee suspended his campaign last night after winning the support of less than two percent of Iowa caucus-goers.
But even before he officially dropped out of the race, the former Arkansas governor and 2008 caucus winner had begun lashing out at the Religious Right leaders who had almost completely coalesced behind Ted Cruz.
After all, Huckabee had vowed to outlaw abortion with a sweeping presidential decree, promised to defy the Supreme Court’s marriage equality ruling before it criminalized Christianity and destroyed America, and literally turned Kentucky clerk Kim Davis’ release from detention into a campaign rally, volunteering to go to jail on her behalf. The former Arkansas governor even pledged to boycott Doritos because the company released rainbow-colored chips benefiting an LGBT suicide prevention group and starred in a bizarre anti-gay film.
Nonetheless, Cruz captured most of the momentum on the Religious Right, offering similar promises to flout the Supreme Court on gay marriage and ban abortion, although Huckabee tried to attack him as a tithe-withholding phony.
But Huckabee’s loss won’t prevent him from leaving a legacy as a mean-spirited politician who tried to advance his political career by bashing gay people, mocking transgender youth and spouting apocalyptic rhetoric.
