The New Huckabee ad
If you haven't seen Mike Huckabee's latest ad, you can watch it here.
I've watched it several times, and I have to scratch my head--some people are off their rockers about this simple wish for a meaningful Christmas. Some accuse Huckabee of "invoking Christ" in a political ad (and what would be wrong with it in this context?) , and Ron Paul has, in referring to the ad, quoted Sinclair Lewis: "when facism comes it will come wrapped in a flag and carrying a cross."
Why mention the cross? Because of the cross-shaped windowpane behind Huckabee's head.
