Huckabee Litmus Test

Mike Huckabee reacted to the Bhutto assassination by explaining it was just one more example of the urgent need to crack down on illegal immigration.

In light of what happened in Pakistan yesterday, it’s interesting that there are more Pakistanis who have illegally crossed the border than of any other nationality except for those immediately south of our border. [Americans might] look halfway around the world and say, ‘How does that affect me?’ … We need to understand that violence and terror is significant when it happens in Pakistan, [and] it’s more significant if it can happen in our own cities. And it happens if people can slip across our border and we have no control over them. The immigration issue is not so much about people coming to pick lettuce or make beds, it’s about people who could come with a shoulder-fired missile and could do serious damage and harm to us.

Here’s the litmus test:

If that brand of idiocy strikes you as bothersome, you’re not voting for Huckabee (and you’re probably a decent way along the path to sanity).

Concentration is important!
