**eastward movement is included



I'm on the edge of my seat waiting for people to realize that mike huckabee is worth nothing more than a good laugh. clips like this one,

in addition to remarks such as these,

"You don't like people from outside the state coming in and telling you what to do with your flag," Huckabee said at a Myrtle Beach campaign event. "In fact, if somebody came to Arkansas and told us what to do with our flag, we'd tell them what to do with the pole, that's what we'd do."

have convinced me that watching his campaign is only going to get better. in other words, little by little he is going to reveal how unfit he is to lead the country. simply stated, huckabee sounds legitimately dangerous; a loose cannon.

New York, New York, United States
I take myself too seriously most of the time and I am trying to do that less. I remind some people of Woody Allen. I occationally indulge in the weekend camping trip. I adamantly support the Kansas City Royals baseball club. My identity is wrapped up in a few simple things, most of which are continuously displayed on this here blog.
