The Republican party is keeping Huckabee in the race so McCain has an opponent.

No opponent, no need to campaign, no news coverage for the remainder of the primaries.

Has anyone noticed all the money that goes into Casey Treat's church? In San Antonio, where Treat frequents often, he made a whopping $15,000 for one hour of speaking at Eagle's Nest Church under Pastor Rick Godwin.

The constant extravagant spending going on in these mega churches is doing nothing but fleecing the flock, and making these so-called preachers VERY rich.

Take a look at the blogs going on in San Antonio, Texas and read the stories that Casey Treat is involved in.

Huckabee is in bed with John Hagee and Kenneth Copeland, and it's questionable whether anything unethical has happened. Should a person running for US President take money from a ministry who is being investigated by the Senate Finance Committee?

Come Senator Grassley and make this prosperity gospel STOP!! It is all lies and twisted scripture, and nothing to do with the Jesus of the Bible.

Or he could want the VP position thus bringing the religious right back into the republican fold.

McCain could always bust a move on Ellen but break a hip...

Then again, you're expecting rational behavior from a man who believes the Earth is only 6000 years old?

Huck's real goal now is to be a senator from Arkansas, so that he'll actually be able to introduce some Old Testament style legislation on his own.

Terrified Dumrats will cry that they don't have the votes to stop it, etc.

15 thou for an hour isn't that high end for a popular public speaker.

@7-- Give the "Dumrats" the White House, a 60-vote majority in the Senate and keep the House, and See What Happens then...
