"Conservativism" according to the Huckster

A friendly acquaintance of mine pointed this out about the most theocratic presidential candidate in the Republican field:

"South Carolina people know true conservatism when they see it. You don't like people outside the state telling you how you ought to raise your kids. You don't like people from outside the state telling you what to do with the [Confederate] flag. In fact, if somebody came down to Arkansas and told us what to do with our flag, we'd tell 'em where to put the pole."

-- GOP presidential candidate Mike Huckabee, who supports Constitutional amendments that would ban abortion nationwide and prohibit any state from legalizing same-sex marriage even if the voters in that state wanted to do so.
