The Constitution of the United States of America...that unique document that has stood this country so well, and has set "standards" for the world to emulate, for more than 200 years...isn't good enough for Mike Huckabee.

Perhaps Huckabee should be running for president on a small "padded" island somewhere in the middle of the North Atlantic where he can do no harm to our Constitution, the American people, himself and others.

If Mike Huckabee wins the Republican nomination it's because his god, is watching out for fools like him who tread where the sane wouldn't dast to go.

Other than being certifiable, the only logical explanation for Huckabee's irrational proposal to change the Constitution must have resulted from him having been swept away in the tidal euphoria of crazed end-of-days-rapturing Christian zealots in South Carolina.

While caught up in the crashing waves of fervent religious zealotry, Huckabee forgot that Earth-bound microphones were open for the entire country -- most of which has their feet planted firmly on middle-of-the-road, moderate terra firma -- to hear his insane ramblings about changing the Constitution so it is in conformity with god's standards.

Quote Huckabee: "I have opponents in this race who do not want to change the Constitution.  But I believe it's a lot easier to change the Constitution than it would be to change the word of the living god. And that's what we need to do -- to amend the Constitution so it's in God's standards rather than try to change God's standards so it lines up with some contemporary view."

That contemporary view Huckabee is referring to IS THE CONSTITUTION.
 
I've asked this before, and I'm sure I will ask it again:  Which god?

There are so many current ones that are worshiped all over the Earth, and that doesn't count all the old ones who reigned supreme, the secret ones, the new one that will pop up tomorrow, or the ones who are worshipped in other galaxies in the universe.

The Christian god? The Muslim god?  The Jewish god with the unpronounceable name, because his name is not to be spoken?  Flora? Loki?  Odin? Thor? Minerva? Zeus? Hera? Luna? Isis? Osiris? Quetzalcoatl?

Poseidon might be most appropriate, because rumor has it that we all sprang from the primordial ooze at the bottom of the sea in and around the volcanic smokers.

Neat place to come from.  It's gorgeous down there.  Fascinating tube worms that look more like gorgeous flowers than something you'd bait a hook with, or slitherings things that plow up the earth to make planting easier.  It's full of an infinite number of creatures living in harmony when they aren't eating each other for dinner. 

Maybe Pandora, because whenever god is invoked all kinds of trouble springs up.

How about Niobe?  We all come into the world crying.  

The list goes on forever.

So, Mr. Huckabee, in which god's image will you standardize the Constitution of the United States of America...that single unique document that has made the United States of America the greatest country on this puny, insignificant planet...

The greatest country in the world that is, until men the likes of you came along.
