Republican Opportunists

Benazir Bhutto, leader of the opposition group to the Pakistani Government and as important a figure to Pakistan as Bill Clinton is to the US, gets assassinated. What do you think would be the appropriate response from a Republican Presidential Candidate?

Is it:

a) Share a moment of silence and prayer for Bhutto, her family, her supporters who died in the suicide attack and the dangerous situation in Pakistan.
b) Argue that terrorism needs to be stopped in Pakistan as a way to bolster his image of a terrorism fighter (in order to get more votes from the people who pay attention to that).
c) Explain why a fence is important to stop the Mexicans from getting in our country.
d) Have sex with young boys in an airport bathroom.

If you picked D, you're wrong, but at least you have a good sense of humor. If you picked B, you're still wrong! Well, I'm sure one of them did, but that's not the subject of this post. If you picked C, you're right! Yes, Governor Mike Huckabee decided to compare the murder of a top political figure in Pakistan to the need for a border fence to keep the Mexicans out.

Congratulations Mike Huckabee! You are officially the Douchebag of the week!

No surprise there. Huckabee has been riding the good ol' boy train for a while now, with very bizarre detours into his Pastor in Chief role.
