Mike Huckabee's Nutty Floridian Adviser

Categories: Politics, Religion
Huckabee-01.jpg
Not as normal as he seems.
Mike Huckabee's gonna go on air in exactly 50 minutes and make an important announcement re: his presidential candidacy. The smart money says he's not running, and until a few days ago, I hoped the smart money was wrong. No way should Huck be president, but he's a fun campaigner and master on the stump, and it'd be fascinating to watch him debate Michelle Bachmann.

But then this article appeared in Mother Jones about a batty middle-aged woman who is, or was, one of Huck's closest friends and advisers. The article didn't mention where the lady was from, but she was so weird, so paranoid, so obviously a wrong and mutant strain of homo politicus that I thought: Oh, shit. She must be a Floridian.

And of course, she is.

Meet Janet Porter (maiden name: Folger) -- founder of Faith2Action (the "nation's largest network of pro-family groups") -- who before that worked for SoFla's own Dr. D. James Kennedy and before that helped ban partial-birth abortions in Ohio. (This is the one likable thing she's ever done.) Porter is a woman who believes, or seems to believe, that Barack Obama is the result of a Soviet breeding program designed to destroy America from within. She thinks that Tommy Thompson might literally be the anti-Christ and that Christianity's about to be outlawed. She's an avowed theocrat. She also happens to think Mike Huckabee is swell, and Mike Huckabee happens to think Janet Porter's a prophet.

And who knows, maybe she is. If you want to see an example of Janet's prophecy, click here. Really, click there -- Janet's prophecy is the freakiest freaking video you'll see this month. And since it's 2 years old, it allows you to judge Porter's prophetical aptitude from a position of authority.

Yep. Mike Huckabee's a cool guy, but presidential candidates oughtn't pal around with dominionist paranoiacs any more than they should pal around with terrorists. I'm disappointed in Mike, and I hope his more ardent fans are even more disappointed when he takes the air tonight.

I only wish the people commenting on these blogs knew half as much as the author.

 Shout out to Bob Norman.  We miss  you.  I prefer to read Lisa Rapp stories, until Pulp is on his own Blog with channel 10 May 24th.

Front page of Sunday's paper. Even Bob didn't get there. A national newspaper. And I heard he will ve on the Today's show.

 Regarding:  and before that  helped ban partial-birth abortions in Ohio. (This is the one likeable thing she's ever done.)You have lost me, and, I hope, many others who believe in women's rights.  The actual term, "Partial birth abortion" is an inflammatory phrase and has no relation to what happens in a late term abortion.

No late term abortion is ever considered as a mere pregnancy termination. It is appalling to me that you would ever condone support  for a ban on such procedures.  They are undertaken in dire circumstances, when a woman's life is in danger, and when continuing the pregnancy may cause irreparable harm. When YOU are able to get pregnant and face such horrible decisions...well, then, you'll be allowed to offer an INTELLIGENT comment.

Get your damn head straight.  Talk about something that you are schooled in.  Stop spouting right wing crap while claiming to be a "reporter" of fact.  You've lost a large section of Bob Norman's readership with your inane comments in the last few days.  Your STUPID comment regarding late term abortion was my last straw.

This blog sucks. The only blog that sucked worse was the Juice.

What the Huck, he's not running, hopefully he will spend the spare time he now has on on improving his guitar playing - loved Ted Nugent though

ps Brandon , you got another point for using "dominionist" again.

Um, perhaps her article was more tongue-in-cheek satire than actual predictions?Funny that she lampoons Obamas association with Bill Ayers (known terrorist) and Jeremaih Wright (if judged by his own words a definite racist even if I don't necessarily believe that he is one) but Huckabee gets grief for associating with HER (just a run--of-the -mill loon)

You've missed the point!  It doesn't matter how much he knows. It's how he puts it in writting. There is a cold detachment from the reader.

Chaz, I hope you keep your potty mouth under control although I am sure that NBC will have the five second delay in operation.

Patti Lynn... very well said. There was a reason we chose to post here..His was a very ignorant comment..Late term abortions are done by Doctors  when there is a danger to the Mothers life. The right wing element want to be in our Doctors offices our bedrooms(BKT it's a surprise to me, as you being a homosexual would condone such interferance) You are either a hypocrate or not very tollerant of anothers right to choose.

Patti,  Give the kid a break , he's probably under stress from studying for the FCAT.

He must be getting paid by the word  with the number of articles he is putting out. Speaking of words I looked up pretentious in Websters and this was the reference :

To A Big Chaz Fan or as he is more commonly known , Chaz Stevens

I liked this section of the article. Not sure about thicker skin , however it certainly covers a greater area. Stevens, 46, says such comments used to bother him, but that he’s “grown a thicker skin’’ about the personal attacks. “It doesn’t matter where I live,’’ he says. “It doesn’t matter if I have a girlfriend or not.’’For the record, Stevens lives with his parents in Deerfield Beach.Read more: http://www.miamiherald.com/201...

 Hey Wanda, loved your movie, especially John Cleese. The blog doesnt suck , just the articles. If the posters keep posting intellectual comments such as yours I am sure it will be just as enjoyable as it was when Bob was the head banana or should I say orange.

Detached yet engaged - interesting. Even though you feel a "cold detachment", you continue to read this author's articles. Why do I say this? Because you continue to comment, therefore I presume you continue to read his articles before commenting. The writer makes you feel alienated (or as you put it: a cold detachment) but you still come back for more. In other words - engaged. That is, I dare say, genius.

I agree with Patti Lynn...I'll wait for the next  author to show up..Sorry BKT we're on a different wave length.  You are alienating and making feel detached. Bob Norman agree or disagree had a personal way with his words that made you want to comment and join in.You sound like an  intoleable elitist.

The man(if you want to call him that) is an imature bully.Thick skin?my ass. He would think nothing of  relentlessly attacking and taunting anyone who disagreed with him or perceived was against him. "You can fool some of the people some of the time, but you can't fool all of the people all of the time"
