Reagan Nostalgia

While it’s easy to grow weary of the “Reagan, Reagan, Reagan…” mantra that has been repeated over and over and over again by the current crop of candidates, we should remember why Reagan is so revered.

ann coulter on mike huckabee

As far as I can tell, it’s mostly secular liberals swooning over Huckabee. Liberals adore Huckabee because he fits their image of what an evangelical should be: stupid and easily led.
[snip]
Employing the ACLU’s “any law I don’t like is unconstitutional” test, Huckabee said he supported the [Lawrence v. Texas (sodomy)] decision because a law […]
