The Huckabee Hits Just Keep On Comin'

As if this incredibly offensive statement wasn't enough, Huckabee had to open his goddamned piehole again and send me into another fit of seething rage.
Conservative talker Bill Bennett interviewed Mike Huckabee on his radio show this morning. In the course of their interview, Huckabee falsely claimed that in approving Prop. 8, California did not "ban" or "prohibit" marriage equality, but rather simply affirmed the definition of marriage as between one man and one woman:

HUCKABEE: The very people who voted for Barack Obama in California…also voted to sustain traditional marriage. I refuse to use the term, "ban same-sex marriage." That's not what those efforts did. They affirmed what is. They did not prohibit something. They simply affirmed something that which has and forever has existed.
Hey, Doucheface:


I honestly don't know what's worse sometimes: the anti-gay bigotry, or the warm and fuzzy ways they try to explain away the fact that they're fucking bigots. "Refuse to use the term" all you want; it's still fucking true, you asshole.
