David Corn has a spine-chilling recitation of some previous writing from Mike Huckabee. In decrying various "cultural conflicts" in America, Huckabee once wrote:

Abortion, environmentalism, AIDS, pornography, drug abuse, and homosexual activism have fragmented and polarized our communities.

AIDS and environmentalism? Then this:

It is now difficult to keep track of the vast array of publicly endorsed and institutionally supported aberrations from homosexuality and pedophilia to sadomasochism and necrophilia.

Again: you try and disentangle this. I can't. "Institutionally supported necrophilia"? The man is nuts.
