Big government plus religious demagoguery — it’s two classic Huck soundbites rolled into one. He could have said “let’s bring it in line with moral standards” or just said what he means, i.e. “let’s ban abortion and gay marriage nationwide.” But there’s no identity politics in that phrasing, is there? For “God’s standards,” it takes more of a “Christian leader,” shall we say. Read this post if you missed it yesterday and see again why the analogy to senior citizens is so bogus.
Neither one of these amendments has a prayer of passing, of course, which makes his whole appeal here essentially dishonest. Oh well. Just win, baby.
