I know: it’s only happened one other time. Don’t get too excited because I haven’t actually said anything (either now or by the end of this post), but last night, Craig and I were watching the news, and I started a political conversation.
Megan: “What do you think about Huckabee?”
Craig (shakes his head): “Yeah, I like Huckabee. What do you think?”
Me: “Me? I’m sort of leaning toward Ron Paul.”
Craig: “You don’t like Huckabee?”
Me: “I’m not sure. I get really nervous when the whole Christian community begins whole-heartedly supporting somebody, sort of like his Baptist minister status makes him an automatic shoo-in for president. I don’t think I’m ready to jump on the bandwagon. Do you think Ron Paul is electable?”
Craig: “Not really, though he’s raised a boatload of money.”
Me: “Do you think Huckabee is?”
Craig: “Possibly. Wait. What in the world do you know about Ron Paul? Or Huckabee?”
Me (grinning): “Not much. It’s just a hunch. But I had you going there for a minute, didn’t I?”
End of political conversation. I actually have read some sketchy info on Huckabee and education, as in he might be pandering to the homeschool population right now, while at the same time sporting past records that aren’t exactly homeschool friendly. But what in the world do I know?
