Mr. Neumayr is upset with conservatives for the “explosion of snide remarks” directed at presidential candidate Mike Huckabee. He admits that Huckabee is a “heterodox Republican on some issues,” but asks, “So what? Who isn]t amongst the leading contenders in this primary race?”
It’s no great compliment to Huckabee, nor reassuring to conservatives, to say he’s as bad as the other candidates.
Mr. Neumayr says we shouldn’t place electability above all things. He further claims that conservatives don’t like a “transparent Christian conservative” such as Huckabee, and then lists some of the failings of the other candidates. In addition, Huckabee’s rejection of Darwinism is supposedly too much for sophisticated conservatives.
I’d have to disagree. As a conservative and Christian, I reject the truth-claims of Darwinism. It might be said that 99 percent of scientists believe in the theory, and that conservatives shouldn’t disagree with scientists. My reply would be that 99 percent of scientists are insane — one percentage point behind mathematicians.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
