Looking South Part 1

My wife and I are watching with rapt attention the unfolding of the democratic process… ah, South of the border.

And like a Mongoose whose eyes are locked on the Cobra, with unflinching attention…
We watch. And listen. And read.
Rinse and repeat.

So – in this the first of a multi-part blog/rant on the subject of the American election experience (for those just joining us, we are Canadians living in Canada – Top that!) I will be giving my readers an escorted tour of my, sometimes confused, interpretation of this most unusual ritual.

Primaries. Caucuses. Super Tuesday?
What does it all mean?

And seriously – what is the difference between what the Republicans are offering the World versus the Democrats?

Well. Let’s start by diving in to some of the current craziness… candidate by candidate.

Mike Huckabee – Republican candidate:

[Some of my opponents] 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 is to amend the Constitution so it’s in God’s standards rather than try to change God’s standards,” Huckabee said, referring to the need for a constitutional human life amendment and an amendment defining marriage as between a man and a woman.”

What the #%$@*? Can anyone spell American Taliban? Can anyone say Theocracy?

I think Huckabee’s candidacy for American Mullah is now pretty much toast. And it’s a good thing.

Good day to you Sir!
