Mike Huckabee’s official entrance into the 2016 presidential race means that the Republican field just keeps on getting bigger — and even more anti-gay. But it’s not just Huckabee. There’s a whole range of candidates who are resolutely behind the times.

Click above to watch a roundup of the GOPers on the stump — and sometimes getting stumped — by modern-day culture. Then share this video!

    Huckabee is no more a serious candidate than Fiorina. Both “campaigns” are an attempt to amass political capital and money for a war chest which can be used for other purposes once the campaign ends. Both are playing to a base which they believe would help them win a primary, Fiorina perhaps less so, although both obviously believe this will improve their chances of being selected as a running mate for the Republican primary winner.

    The goal right now is to win the primary. Once the winner is established, the rhetoric will shift to a more moderate position. (Happens every time, like clockwork) Neither of these two clowns are serious. Ditto Carson. His campaign is going to look a lot like Herman Cain’s “Art Project” of the 2012 cycle. Bush and Cruz are the leading red candidates with a draw between Walker and Rubio for third place. (Expect truly WEIRD stuff from those two) I’m betting that Bush will win the primary. (So MUCH money! So cautiously Centrist! So genetically Presidential!) Fiorina would be a good fit with him and she knows it. Huckabee would be a good fit with Cruz and Huckabee knows this, too. So bet on a consolidation of conditions and positions for the reds.

    Either way it slices, it’s going to be an interesting election with lots and lots of outrageous things coming out of the mouths of the conservatives. See the Conservative run. See the Conservative open his mouth and say the first thing that comes into his stupid head. See the Conservative shoot himself in the foot. Oh, poor Conservative, the “lamestream” media is out to get him.

    Hilarity ensues. Stay tuned, neighbors.

    I sure would like to know how it would affect homophobia type people in any way if gays were allowed to get married. I can’t think of anything. If that gay couple down the street have a piece of paper between them or not how is that going to affect anyone in the neighborhood?

    The Republican positions on issues such as religion, abortion, gay marriage, and illegal immigration, to name a few, are influenced by necessity rather than logic or moral values. Republican politicians are well aware of how important those social issues are to most Republicans, and they know that trying to tone down the rhetoric or, Heavens forbid, trying to solve these problems in a way that respects the rights of ALL Americans, rather than those on the fringes, is political suicide. They will feed the party faithful whatever they want to hear, regardless of whether or not doing so is consistent with the essence of our Constitution, our laws, or what is in the best interest of our country.
    In a country with a political system dominated by money, the best tools to protect and advance the interests of the upper class is to use fear, and exploit prejudice, to win campaigns to control policy making, and shaping our laws to address our most prejudicial interests by nominating Judges and Justices whose social and legal views reflect those of the disciples of the anti-Christ.
