From Holden:

Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, prevented by term limits from running for governor again, has his eyes on the White House and is campaigning in Iowa.

Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee said in Cedar Rapids today that he is optimistic his legislature will quickly reinstate a ban on same sex couples serving as foster parents.

He concedes that it would prevent Vice President Dick Cheney’s daughter from serving in that role.

Huckabee explains his reasoning.

“What I feared was going on was that the plaintiffs in this case were not as interested in foster children as they were in making the political point of homosexual activism,” Huckabee said. “That’s troubling that we would use children as apolitical tool to enact something that has nothing to do with the best interest of a foster child.”

That’s right, only Republikkkans are allowed to place politics before the best interests of foster children.
