From Our: "Was There a GOP Debate While I Dozed?" Department
Mike HuckaBooBoo

Uh-oh, another holy-roller politician with pesky Judeo-Christian fact-related aphasia:

"When our founding fathers put their signatures on the Declaration of Independence, those 56 brave people, most of whom, by the way, were clergymen, they said that we have certain inalienable rights given to us by our creator, and among these life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, life being one of them. I still believe that. "
--Mike Huckabee, Orlando GOP Debate
"Only one of the 56 was an active clergyman, and that was John Witherspoon...A few more of the signers were former clergymen, though it's a little unclear just how many. The conservative Heritage Foundation said two other signers were former clergymen. The religion web site said four signers of the declaration were current or former full-time preachers. But everyone agrees only Witherspoon was an active minister when he signed."

But, heck, isn't Mike a 5K year-old Earth and dinosaur co-existance neo-believer?
Will the Chief Justice say, "Mr. President-elect, place your left hand on these live, wriggling snakes, raise your right and repeat in tongues after me..."?
