Man-on-Dog Huckabee

QUESTIONER: Is it your goal to bring the Constitution into strict conformity with the Bible? Some people would consider that a kind of dangerous undertaking, particularly given the variety of biblical interpretations.

HUCKABEE: Well, I don’t think that’s a radical view to say we’re going to affirm marriage. I think the radical view is to say that we’re going to change the definition of marriage so that it can mean two men, two women, a man and three women, a man and a child, a man and animal. Again, once we change the definition, the door is open to change it again. I think the radical position is to make a change in what’s been historic.

So in Huckabee's world, which is the same as Santorum's world, allowing a gay couple to marry leads to... a man and a child?! A man and an animal?! He's -- what's the word? Batshit nuts. Yet he's such a nice guy. I wonder where else we've heard this nice-guy-who's-really-quite-insane story?
