Is it too much to ask …

… for a mainstream Republican—who isn’t a friggin’ lunatic?!

I mean, for God’s sake. I actually like Mike Huckabee. He seems like a decent man, and while I don’t support 98% of his beliefs, I don’t consider him to be phony or overly ambitious.

But then I watch this, courtesy of Andrew Sullivan and, well, you be the judge …

To review:

Palin—Incompetent fraud nutjob.

Huckabee—Well-intentioned nutjob.

Newt—A legwarmer trying to come back in 2010.

Mitt—Professional candidate and complete phony. If Kerry was a flipflopper, Mitt is an uber-flipflopper.

Jindal—Best of the bunch, I guess.
