Add Mike Huckabee's son to the list of people who suck.

This event happened almost 10 years ago. The son was 17. Why is that relevant to Mike Huckabee's campaign? And why should we care?

djd:
Huck's son's behavior may not bear on the current candidacy of his father, but Huckabee's behavior in firing a government employee for not helping him exert undue influence in a case is certainly relevant to judging the character of the man.
Beyond that, youths who perpetrate torture on animals often turn out to be sociopaths. This may not be relevant to the campaign, but it would make one avoid the son.

Government is full of such "I'll-scratch-your-back-if-you-scratch-mine" tactics. Until I get more details than this, I'm going to refrain from
judging him too harshly. So long as it we have a he-said versus he-said kind of situation, I'm uncomfortable that I can make a completely informed decision. I'm expecting more to come out on Huckabee now that he's the GOP front.

Anyone who tortures an animal is certainly far from a stellar human being.

and of course our hostess, CC, said to add the son to the list of 'eww...", she didn't say anything about the father.

It seems to be a lot of here-say without any sort of evidence for either side. I cannot form any judgement....


..aside from the fact that in that picture he looks totally unf*(kable

kim: my only concern is that people (not cc, but reporters in general) dig up this stuff when really they should focus on the issues at hand.
