Mike Huckleberry … uh … Whatever!
Temporary GOP presidential candidate and former governor of Arkansas, Mike Huckabee, has "clarified" his position on whether on not he believes in evolution, claiming that the "yes/no" format of the question in last night's Republican presidential debate didn't allow him an opportunity to really explain his views.
Reportedly, Huckabee maintains that, if he had the chance:
… he would have indicated that he does believe that evolution should be taught in public schools, and that is the responsibility of the parents to teach their children the creation theory…. [I]f Matthews or anyone else wants to believe that his or her family "came from apes" that is fine for them, but it is not what he believes.Fair enough, but Huckabee goes on to say:
I'm not sure what in the world [evolution] has to do with being president of the United States.Hey, Mike, there is this thingie in Washington called the Department of Education that sort of has somethin' to do with what is taught in schools and stuff like that there. It might be a good idea if the person in charge of the place has at least heard of the 21st Century.
Besides, 8 years of ignoramuses in the White House are enough.
