SUCK-A-BEE! He is running for President. Lucky us.

Okay. I am awake. I have my coffee and some doggerel in progress. Anybody who wants to help with my song, just chime in and write a verse.
Or fix a line in my lyrics. This poem writing shit is not easy even if it is only doggerel.
He's oozing all over me.
Fat right winger on a spree,
Peddling God for the GOP.
Calling me 'slut' for a fee,
To takeThe Pill from me,
Peddling shame and eternity.
Left FUX Snooze TV,
To run for the Presidency
An act of cupidity.
Just ignore the crucifix in the parlor.
Suckabuck sells Jesus for the dollar. 
I am not taken in by Mike Huckabee's good ole country boy persona. Why do I despise him you may well ask. Barry Goldwater says it best:
On religious issues there can be little or no compromise. There is no position on which people are so immovable as their religious beliefs. There is no more powerful ally one can claim in a debate than Jesus Christ, or God, or Allah, or whatever one calls this supreme being. But like any powerful weapon, the use of God's name on one's behalf should be used sparingly.
The religious factions that are growing throughout our land are not using their religious clout with wisdom. They are trying to force government leaders into following their position 100 percent. If you disagree with these religious groups on a particular moral issue, they complain, they threaten you with a loss of money or votes or both.
I'm frankly sick and tired of the political preachers across this country telling me as a citizen that if I want to be a moral person, I must believe in "A," "B," "C" and "D." Just who do they think they are? And from where do they presume to claim the right to dictate their moral beliefs to me?
And I am even more angry as a legislator who must endure the threats of every religious group who thinks it has some God-granted right to control my vote on every roll call in the Senate. I am warning them today: I will fight them every step of the way if they try to dictate their moral convictions to all Americans in the name of "conservatism."
