Mike Huckabee: Dumbed Down and Dumber Than a Fifth Grader

Once again, former Arkansas governor and GOP Presidental hopeful Mike Huckabee unwittingly proved once again why he is unfit and unqualified for the presidency of the United States.

When forced to respond to the tragic assassination of former Pakistan Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto, Mike Huckabee has spent the last 24 hours constantly fumbling and apologizing for his cluelessness and incompetence on a key foreign policy issue. On
MSNBC earlier this morning, Huckabee said that Musharraf was unable to control Pakistan's "eastern borders" with Afghanistan.


As blogger Satyam Khanna points out on AlterNet, India, not Afghanistan, borders Pakistan to the East.
Check the map above if you need additional proof.

Mike Huckabee. Dumber than a Fifth-Grader. And as nutty as a holy-roller.

2/15/2008 UPDATE: For a further perspective on why religious fundamentalism has contributed to the dumbing-down of our nation, read this provocative review from Salon on author Susan Jacoby and her works attacking religious fundamentalism and its dumbing-down effect on reason. Worth reading.

Now you know why I thank the Lord God every day for giving me the opportunity to have a Mennonite education.
