How did the story about Jesus and the man with leprosy go again??
Christian Mike Huckabee went to bed with a 22 point lead in Iowa. He woke up with a flash from his past. As a candidate for Senate in 1992, Huckabee said that he thought AIDS patients should be quarantined. He added that federal health agencies shouldn't fund AIDS research.
Nobody has ever accused us of being biblical scholars here at the Cooler. But we recall Jesus healing the sick,
not quarantining them. Maybe somebody from camp Huck can clear that up in the comments...
NB- The burning question is, how much does this hurt him? Well if it's the first of many oppo dumps in the coming weeks, then he should be worried. This in particular will probably hurt him in other places more than Iowa. If you want to be refreshed as to why, click here
