Mike Huckabee, Asshole of the Day for September 8, 2015

Kim Davis was released from jail today, which almost seemed like a disappointment to Mike Huckabee who had gone to Kentucky to throw a rally in her behalf. Having her walk out of jail ruins the optics of the boot of government on the throat of the pious martyr he was hoping for.

But he still found a way to keep the fight going after the judge said that Ms. Davis can’t interfere with the issuance of gay marriage licenses in her county. Huckabee said he would gladly go to jail:

“I have a message for the judge,” Huckabee proclaimed, “and I say this with all my heart: If this judge believes that somebody must be put in jail because a person is willing to stand on the biblical definition of marriage … Let Kim go, but if you have to put someone in jail, I volunteer to go. Let me go. Lock me up if you think that’s how freedom is best served.”

“I am willing to spend the next eight years in the White House leading this country,” เล่นสล็อตออนไลน์ลุ้นรางวัลใหญ่he thundered, “but I want you to know, I’m willing to spend the next eight years in jail but I’m not willing to spend one day under the tyranny of people who believe they can take our freedom and conscience away!”

Of course Gov. Huckabee knows that’s not how it works. We don’t let innocent people serve jail time on behalf of the guilty, except of course for those wrongfully arrested or convicted. But by offering he’s trying to get some of her martyr cred to rub off on him and maybe breathe some life into his presidential campaign that is going nowhere.

It does of course beg the question as to what  a President Huckabee would do about gay marriage when he’s in the White House? Would he just ignore the Supreme Court decision? Mike Huckabee is not an idiot– he knows that the Supreme Court is the ultimate arbiter of the law in this country. There is no clause for the law to be whatever the government official claims God told them to do.

And furthermore, Kim Davis doesn’t have to be issuing marriage licenses. There are plenty other jobs she could do that won’t offend her religious sensibility– she is not forced to do this one. It’s a free country. The judge is compelling her to issue marriage licenses to gays as long as she continues to do the job of issuing marriage licenses, but the judge is not compelling her to keep that job. Mike Huckabee hasn’t spent a minute on that one.

So, for pretending that he would go to jail in her place, and trying to steal Kim Davis’ martyrdom for himself– a martyrdom that she could avoid by just quitting her job– Mike Huckabee is the Asshole of the Day.

It is Mike Huckabee’s seventh time being named Asshole of the Day. Previous wins were for
