Passing The Huck…

… the story of a wee little man.

The Huckster has a campaign manager, his name is Ed Rollins.  Mr. Rollins made his bones in the political world managing Ronald Reagan’s 1984 presidential campaign.  Reagan won 49 states that year.  So, he has got some chops.

Rollins knows how to get the heat off his candidate.  The manager simply says it was his fault and in the same breath blame it on timing or some such issue.  This is what Rollins did with that horror of a press conference from New Year’s Eve.  During that episode I told you why the Huckster makes me nervous/nauseous/nauseated.

So team Huck is out doing damage control.  Here is the problem…  The Huckster is the one who stood up and played the hypocrite.  He played the video, while telling us he was too godly to play the video.  So, in keeping with his character, he now sends someone else out to take the blame and tell everyone to lighten up.

This is not what repentance looks like.  When our sin finds us out (and it will) the proper response is to meet with the Forgiver of sins and do what Zacchaeus did in Luke 19:

1 Then Jesus entered and passed through Jericho. 2 Now behold, there wasa man named Zacchaeus who was a chief tax collector, and he was rich. 3 And he sought to see who Jesus was, but could not because of the crowd, for he was of short stature. 4 So he ran ahead and climbed up into a sycamore tree to see Him, for He was going to pass that way. 5 And when Jesus came to the place, He looked up and saw him, and said to him, “Zacchaeus, make haste and come down, for today I must stay at your house.” 6 So he made haste and came down, and received Him joyfully. 7 But when they saw it, they all complained, saying, “He has gone to be a guest with a man who is a sinner.”
8Then Zacchaeus stood and said to the Lord, “Look, Lord, I give half of my goods to the poor; and if I have taken anything from anyone by false accusation, I restore fourfold.”
9 And Jesus said to him, “Today salvation has come to this house, because he also is a son of Abraham; 10 for the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost.”

So Huck, if you did wrong (and I think you did), repent and make like the original wee little man.

UPDATE:  Michelle Malkin points out how much of this is pure Macho Bluster.  Apparently Mr. Rollins would like to punch Mitt Romney’s teeth out.

  1. Hi Dan,
    I am not registered with any political party and Florida has closed primaries, so I will not be voting until the general election in November. That being said… Let me just tell you the candidates I cannot vote for…

    Any of the current crop of Democrats running. There is not a single one who wants to end, limit or otherwise curtail the state sanctioned murder of unborn children. That is an issue I will stand firm on. That does not mean that any candidate has to promise to sign a pro-life amendment in order to get my vote, but they have to be willing to at least move toward protecting life in the womb. None of these folks want to do that.

    Mike Huckabee (The Huckster) – For reasons I have already stated he is not the Christian man’s candidate.

    Rudi Gulliani (The Nation’s Mayor) – Rudi has big government tendencies, with a blatant disregard for the life of the unborn thrown in to boot.

    John McCain (The Nation’s Vet) – I admire Sen. McCain’s service and his actions while held prisoner in Vietnam. Of all those running (Dems and Reps) for office McCain is one of three who have served in the military (Duncan Hunter and Ron Paul are the other two) and if that were the only issue on the table I might support him. Unfortunately, he authored the worst piece of legislation to come out of congress in my lifetime: The McCain-Feingold Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act (BCRA) of 2002. If your understanding of the 1st amendment leads you to limit political speech then you can’t be president. Sorry, that should be a rule.

    Mitt Romney (The Future god) – He is a polytheist. I could live under a Mormon president, even honor him, but I could never vote to put him in office. Daniel was an advisor to King Nebuchadnezzar (and others), but he did not sit on the panel that picked the king nor did he have a say in his successor. So, if asked to give President Romney my support through government service I would do so as unto the Lord. Just can’t vote for the guy.

    So, those are the guys I cannot vote for and that will carry forward into the general election as well. If any of these guys is nominated I am afraid I will be voting for “none of the above.”

    If the Republican Nomination falls to Ron Paul, Duncan Hunter or Fred Thompson I will consider it.
