Huckabee's Really Getting on My Last Good Nerve Now

Gomer Pyle is all testy, because people have the gall to keep asking him about his religious beliefs all the time:

[Huckabee] bristled Tuesday when asked if creationism should be taught in public schools.

Huckabee — who raised his hand at a debate last May when asked which candidates disbelieved the theory of evolution — asked this time why there is such a fascination with his beliefs.
Because you want to legislate them, dipshit. That makes them kind of a need-to-know issue for the rest of us.

The former Arkansas governor pointed out he has advocated for broad public school course lists that include the creative arts and math and science. Why, then, he asked, is evolution such a fascination?
Because you passed a dinner in Des Moines pontificating about "intelligent design" and advocating its being taught in schools. We want to make sure you still support science being taught in science classes, too.

Et cetera. And, by the way, if you don't want your faith to be a BFD on the campaign trail, perhaps you ought to stop compulsively reminding people that you're a Southern Baptist preacher. It's really pathetic to whinge about questions regarding your religious beliefs when you've made them the centerpiece of your campaign. Just saying.
